“And he said, Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with
what comparison shall we compare it?”
“It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth,
is less than all the seeds that be in the earth: “
“But when it is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater than all herbs,
and shooteth out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it.”
By redemption, God designed the believer to rise to a giant Rev. 5:9-10; Matt. 5:13:15. A giant is someone of unusual big stature; stature here refers to result. In essence, a giant is one that stand out by reason of result among the people. The is who God has ordained the believer to be, not by his educational qualification, physical data, family background, but simply by his covenant connection to God Gen. 12:1-2. We understand from scriptures that there are the kingdom ways to access the provisions of God for His children Jer. 6:16; Eccl. 10:15.
From Monday, we have established that dedication is the scriptural way for believers to emerge as giants Jn. 12:23-25; Mk. 4:30-32. What is dedication? It is being committed unto death to God and the pursuit of the advancement of His kingdom Rev. 12:11. Dedication is the highway o glory and honor in God’s kingdom. we have been studying individuals in scriptures who rose to greatness on the platform of kingdom dedication.
Scriptural Examples of Giants who Rose by Dedication.
Daniel was one of the teenage Jew Nebuchadnezzar captured, took to Babylon and made to become one of his eunuchs Dan. 1:3-4. Daniel by his commitment to God, refused the provisions of the king because they will defile him, which act is tantamount to death Dan. 1:8. Also, Daniel would rather accept to be thrown into the den of hungry lions than bow to a human idol Dan. 6:5-22. At the end Daniel did not die, he rather gained access to divine secrets that led to his supernatural rise above all others Dan. 2:19,46; 4:8-9. He also lived to served four consecutive kings of two different kingdoms, he was said to be relevant and indispensable for sixty-five years. Indeed, dedication empowers the rise of giants.
Just like any other demand of scriptures, dedication will place a cost on the believer. But the benefits one will enjoy by compliance will always outweigh the cost. Therefore, the choice to be dedicated is wisdom that pays greatly.
