Trees in the woods can block the sun from other trees.
That causes trees to develop long, high tree trunks with very few low branches while competing for the rays of sunlight, thus also causing the canopy of the forest to develop.
Tall weeds in the garden will take away nutrients and sunlight from other plants.
Corn planted too close together will block the sun from other corn plants and also prevent full development of ears of corn.
One tree that is separate from the forest, will develop fully to a mature tree with branches that will bear fruit, or cones that are reachable. It has full access to the sun’s rays and grows unhindered by others.
Now hear the Word of The LORD:
“I have been calling out to you, to draw you out of your complacent position surrounded by the familiar things that have made you feel secure and enclosed, and away from the things that might bother you and cause you discomfort.
Is this what you think is good?
Have I not called you by name to walk in My Grace and power to demonstrate My Spirit and power so others will not depend on the wisdom of man, but upon the Power of God?
Have you not seen, have you not heard, that the everlasting LORD, the Maker of Heaven and earth does not grow weary nor become faint?
Do you truly believe that you can out-wait My intent, or the Word of Life that I have sent you?
My Word will not return to Me void, or be cancelled out by your complacency, but it will accomplish the purpose for which I sent it,” says The LORD.
“There is nothing hidden from My Sight!
There is nothing that will stop a tsunami.
There is nothing that will stop a raging river that is ready to overflow its banks.
There is nothing that will calm the raging storm of the seas unless you call upon Me.
Diversion from the purpose of My Word for you will make you sick, it will prevent your own growth in My Spirit, and cause you to MISS OUT on the plans and purposes I have intended for you!
It has been far too long for you to dismiss and omit the Voice of The LORD.
Return to Me and I will return to you.
Come unto Me and be healed of your ways, for I will abundantly pardon.
I have seen and observed your ways and I will heal you, when you turn your heart toward home,” says The LORD.
