“Jesus replied, ‘Every plant not planted by my heavenly Father will be uprooted.” – Matthew 15:13 NLT
Jesus told a story of a farmer who planted good seed in his field. But at night as the workers slept, his enemy came and planted weeds among the wheat, then slipped away. When the crop began to grow and produce grain, the weeds also grew. The farmer’s workers went to him and said, ‘Sir, the field where you planted that good seed is full of weeds! Where did they come from?’ ‘An enemy has done this!’ the farmer exclaimed.
There are people in your life, planted by the devil to destroy you and your destiny. Listen to me: not everyone in your life should be there; you are not meant to be in every relationship; some of these people have been in your life for a very long time; and you may have even become comfortable with their presence! It’s time for them to leave!
You must learn to reject whatever is not of God in your life. It doesn’t matter if it’s a person, a job, business or position; it doesn’t matter too, how beneficial to you it seems; the enemy of the better is the good! Do you understand?
I decree today, let every plant not planted by my heavenly Father be uprooted, in Jesus name! Amen!
