I would have to say that the creation of a seed is one of the most incredible things made by God. The massive oak and redwood trees that grow and flourish for hundreds of years begin with a small acorn and seed. It’s a lengthy and challenging process, but it all begins with a very small thing which confirms a never changing sovereign fact – the increase is God’s responsibility and department. Even through a mustard seed of faith, God brings forth miraculous growth that is astounding and a mystery to our human reasoning.
“Anyone can count the number of seeds in a watermelon. Only God can count the number of watermelon in a seed.” Mark Batterson
“I have observed the watermelon seed. It has the power of drawing from the ground and through itself 200,000 times its weight. When you can tell me how it takes this material and out of it colors an outside surface beyond the imitation of art, and then forms in it a white rind and within that again a red heart, thickly inlaid with black seeds, each one of which in turn is capable of drawing through itself 200,000 times its weight – When you can explain to me the mystery of a watermelon, you can ask me to explain the mystery of God.” William Jennings Bryan
The metaphor of a watermelon, trees, and the mystery of God is simply amazing. What God can do with the smallest of things is mind-boggling and beyond our reasoning. Regardless of what you are facing today, I would encourage you to quit focusing on the outcome and remember that the increase is God’s responsibility. We will never understand His ways or methods, but our faith in Him can, and will, grow stronger day by day.
Focus Scripture: O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who have been his counsellor?” Romans 11:33-34
