Seeds of faith are being released!
I believe this is a word from God for many right now: the Holy Spirit is awakening dormant seeds of faith.

It may not look like it, but there has been a change in the environment, and the conditions are right for growth.

You Have Those Seeds in Your Pocket!

  • The size of the need, or the enormity of what you are called to do, is confronting you

You are uncertain how God can use you, but He wants you to know, you are already carrying every gift that you need.
You have those seeds in your pocket!
There are seeds of creativity, wisdom, and greatness—and above all, seeds of faith—ready for you to sow.

Not the Size but the Source of Your Seeds

And what counts is not how big those seeds are, or how many you have.
It is not the “size” of your faith, but the source of your faith that matters—for the Holy Spirit is with you.

One day, Jesus taught a lesson about having faith as a seed:

“And the apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith.”
So the Lord said, “If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.” (Luke 17:5-6, NKJV)

Faith can be like a dormant seed until it is activated.
Then, all things are possible, when your faith is:

  • Based on a word from God and
  • Infused with the Holy Spirit’s power

God is Turning Your Questions into Wisdom

And it’s okay to express the reason why this is difficult.
Go ahead and tell your Father about the gap between your ability and the task ahead.
For there is a miracle in the gap—and He wants to reveal His power to you.

When the Jews of Persia were under threat, Mordecai called on Queen Esther to plead the case before her husband the king. Esther sent a reply, explaining that by approaching the king, she was putting her life in danger.

  • Invariably, those who obeyed the call of God had a reason why it was impossible!
  • And they did not hold back from vocalizing those objections [1]

As a result, we can read God’s response (or that of His angelic messengers) to these questions raised by his people.

Questions Reveal the Seeds!

In fact, God’s answers to objections provide us with some of the greatest, faith-filled words of scripture!

Here is a powerful word that exists in the Bible because Esther raised a question—and Mordecai delivered God’s answer!
“…Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14b NKJV)
And it speaks to your situation today.

So be open with God, and share your heart and mind, for there is grace for your honesty.
Express to Him every reason that you have, as to why it is impossible to step out.
And listen to His voice. “Beloved, I have already given you the seed. You have everything you need.”

  • He is turning your seeds of doubt into seeds of faith

Seeds of Faith and the Holy Spirit

Mary of Nazareth asked a question, and God provided an explanation—one that was glorious! And God’s answer has not changed.

When Mary learned that she was to conceive and give birth to the Messiah, she responded with a question: “How can this be…?” And the angel replied to Mary, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the baby to be born will be holy, and he will be called the Son of God.” (Luke 1:35, NLT)

And He is your source.

Seeds are Awakening

When winter makes way for spring—even before there is an outward change, seeds are awakening. Bulbs that have lain dormant, begin to sprout.
Buds are forming.

Activity is taking place, that you are unaware of.
And right now, the Holy Spirit is making connections, even though you are unaware of it.
“The connections are already in place”.

Hear Him say, “I am turning fatigue into faith!”

“Behold, I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it?
I will even make a road in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert.”
(Isaiah 43:19, NKJV)

Today, courage is rising from within you! We call it forth, and say,
“Let every gift and seed of faith reserved for this time, be anointed and emerge, in Jesus’ Name.”

    Greetings Helen, I am so blessed by your messages.. Everytime you send them through my faith gets ignited.. Please STAND in prayer with me, as I believe that God is directing my family & I to relocate to another city for our assignment. We need a supernatural financial provision. I’m so trusting God this year for mighty things…..Blessings

  3. Wow Helen, only GOD could have told you to give this word for ME right now!!!
    I’m preparing to teach at a YWAM school, which I haven’t done since leaving there late- 2015, though I’ve done some courses for churches…. And have had feelings of inadequacy due to health issues, but He keeps on telling me to go ahead, as it’s for Him, and the students need revelation for their lives to change. (The week’s topic is knowing our true identity in Him.)

    All this is to say a BIG THANK YOU for your vital, encouraging, personal word for me.

    1. I’m so excited for you (and the students) over this, Jenny!
      May that life-changing revelation of identity and more just bubble up in you, brim over, and pour out all over them. Jesus and you have got this!

  4. Hello Helen, this was a timely WORD about the gift inside laying dormant. I’ve been asking the Lord to awaken every gift inside me that I may “Fan into Flame every Gift that He has given unto me for the Plan and Purpose He has for my life to bring Him Glory. My focus has been Awakened by the Holy Spirit to ponder and to meditate more on Gods Word and my spiritual walk and what He has chosen me to do. Thank God for the prophetic gift God has given you to help me along the way. God bless!!!

    1. yes Father, awaken every gift in Sandra You have appointed for this season. There is more! There is more!
