The Almond Tree

Moreover the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Jeremiah, what do you see?” And I said, “I see a branch of an almond tree.” Then the Lord said to me, “You have seen well, for I am ready to perform My word.”  Jeremiah 1:11-12 NKJV 

The Almond tree is known as the wakeful tree. It awakes from the sleep of winter earlier than other trees; it flowers in January and bears fruit in March—first to bloom and last to bear fruit. It is a symbol of God’s early implementation of His plan and purpose, to bring it to pass in your life.

No matter what your condition, i.e., sickness, distress, lack, problems or turmoil, everything that God says, He will perform; every promise He makes, He will fulfill, so never give up on God and His Word— just stand on His promises! Like the almond tree that was first to welcome the spring, to watch over it, God watches over His Word to perform it, so always remember the almond tree.

When God said to Jeremiah that He is ready to perform His Word, literally, God was saying that he was ready to watch over and hasten the manifestation of His Word. Almond (shaqad, Hebrew) is translated “to watch.”  God chose this symbol to assure Jeremiah that He is watching over His Word to bring it to pass, no matter His youth or how long it takes.

The Almond tree and its branches is like a “receipt” for God’s “lay-away” plan, if you will, because His works are already finished (Heb. 4:3). It’s just a matter of time when the things that He has prepared for you will manifest in time and space (1 Cor. 2:9). The almond tree reminds you being the first tree to bloom and the last to bear fruit.

God’s Word, plan and purpose will always come to pass (Matt. 24:35). Why? Because, “He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end” (Eccl. 3:11). Don’t ever give up. Hold on to the promise because your winter will be over and your spring shall begin. God makes everything beautiful in His time.” God executes His plan and purpose in Kairos not Chronos. Chronos is a space of time; Kairos is the set time or proper time based on God’s eternal plan. God will never stop watching over His Word to perform it (Jer. 31:28). Remember the almond tree!

How Long? Not Long!

And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Son of man, what is this proverb that you people have about the land of Israel, which says, ‘The days are prolonged, and every vision fails’? Tell them therefore, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “I will lay this proverb to rest, and they shall no more use it as a proverb in Israel.” But say to them, “The days are at hand, and the fulfillment of every vision.  For no more shall there be any false vision or flattering divination within the house of Israel. For I am the Lord. I speak, and the word which I speak will come to pass; it will no more be postponed; for in your days, O rebellious house, I will say the word and perform it,” says the Lord God. Ezekiel 12:21-25 NKJV

With the promises of God, you cannot put God on the clock or a timetable, choosing to believe, and then stop believing because of time. Time is a measurement of the progression of events—measured in minutes, hours, days, months, and years. Time can be your friend or your enemy. Time is a friend if you use time to thank and praise God and continue to act on His Word. It’s an enemy if it seduces you into apathy and indifference, doubt and unbelief because of what you do not see or hear. So, you might ask how long will it take for God’s promise to manifest in your life? And God says, “Not long.”

There are three likely reactions to the promises of God: faith, foolishness, and presumption. Faith believes and sees the answer (2 Cor. 5:7). Foolishness rebels against the answer in unbelief (Ezek. 12:2). And, presumption predetermines the answer and outcome—deciding when, where and how the promise should manifest.

As stated in the text above, God doesn’t prolong His Word, He hastens it and watches over it to perform it (Jer. 1;12). So you might ask, “Why has it taken so long?”  “So long” is a measurement of time, not eternity. God operates in Kairos and not Chronos (Greek words for “time”). Chronos is a space of time (e.g., see John 5:6) and Kairos is a set time or proper time, based on God’s eternal plan (e.g., see Matt. 8:29). No matter how long, as measured in time, God’s Word doesn’t return to Him empty, fruitless, and unfulfilled (Isaiah 55:11).  The Word that God speaks “will come to pass; it will no more be postponed . . . [God] will say the word and perform it” (Ezek. 12:25).

The Word (which includes the promises of God) will work for you if you’ll be patient (Heb. 10:35, 36). God is not bound by time but operates according to His eternal plan and purpose, and His Word will never return to Him void!

How to Get Out and Stay Out

 Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise Your name; The righteous shall surround me, For You shall deal bountifully with me. Psalm 142:7 NKJV

David, hiding out in a cave and deeply troubled because King Saul sought to find him and kill him. He found himself in a figurative “prison” and cried out to the Lord because he wanted to get out and stay out. Many, just like David, have found themselves in a “prison” of sin, sickness, addiction, lack and poverty, confusion and emotional turmoil and desire to get out and stay out.

The good news is that  Jesus came to set captives free, regardless of your “prison” (Luke 4:18).  He sends His Word to heal your circumstance and deliver you out of your captivity (Psalm 107:20-21). Now, when the Word comes, you can leave your prison by acting on God’s Word—believing it in your heart and speaking it with your mouth (Mark 11:23). God wants His children to get out and stay out. How?

In the Scripture text above, David mentions three ways to stay out of your “prison” once delivered; but, I will also offer an additional way. Here are the four ways to stay out, i.e., to be protected from the snares of the enemy once you have been delivered: first, after Jesus sets you free, give continuous praise and thanksgiving to God; second, be sure to surround yourself with righteous-minded people. You must avoid hanging around undelivered and unrighteous individuals who can offer you no hope; third, keep your heart and mind open and to allow God to deal with you continually. Just because you’ll been set free doesn’t mean God is finish with you. There are more seasons coming in your life; and, fourth, do not forsake the assembling of yourself (Heb. 10:25) with other believers for worship, teaching and preaching of the Word of God. You will grow in the grace and the knowledge of God’s Word by doing so.

Remember, God accomplishes His intended purposes, in your life, by the Word. This Word will help you get out and stay out according to Isaiah 55:10, 11. According to the Prophet Isaiah, the Word of God cannot be stopped no more than rain and snow can be stopped. God’s Word fertilizes your circumstance and makes it bring forth and bud a miracle of change. The Word will never return to God empty and fruitless. The Word works to get you out and keep you out!

There’s a Miracle in Your Mouth

He sent His word and healed them, And delivered them from their destructions. Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, And for His wonderful works to the children of men! Psalm 107:20-21 NKJV

There is miracle-working power in the Word of God (Heb. 1:3). Miracles happen when you act on the Word (Mark 9:23; Ps. 33:9); and, God will not violate His Word (Isa. 55:11). If you’re bound or “imprisoned” by sin, sickness, lack,  poverty, or problems—please know that wants His children to be free and stay free (Gal. 5:1). When God sends His Word to whatever your plight, there’s a miracle in your mouth if you’ll speak the same Word sent to make you whole and to rescue and release you.

After you get free, God wants you to stay out of your “prison.” How? Well, you can leave your prison whenever you’re ready by acting on God’s Word in your life, by speaking it with your mouth (Mark 11:23). There’s a miracle in your mouth waiting to manifest. Miracles come by speaking and acting on God’s Word.

How is it that some get free but don’t remain free? This is no mystery. If it were a mystery, then, what is the mystery of freedom? The Apostle Paul reveals the secret in Romans 12:1-2: “. . . present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”  Continued freedom demands a renewed mind. You will never be free and stay free until you become free in you mind (2 Cor. 5:17).

The Word works, but you have to work the Word. You see, the Word of God—not the Bible—is the sword of the Spirit (Eph. 6:17). God sends His Word and that Word proceeding out of your mouth is the “Word” that came from God to you in your specific circumstance. The Word is a mighty weapon that God sends to us to defeat all enemies that would imprison us. Thank God that there is a miracle in your mouth!
