…the Holy seed will be the stump in the land” (Isaiah 6:13b)

God knows those who are His.  Life throws curve balls all the time; they are designed to throw us off our game, create a diversion, or hinder our way forward.  But I have good news for you. When the root is Holy, the fruit shall be Holy and nothing can stop, hinder or halt life and growth.

During the time of Isaiah’s commissioning, God sent a “word” of encouragement.  Times were hard, the past glory was gone, cities were destroyed, and the people’s hearts were weary, worn and hardened.  But…don’t you just love God’s “buts”?  But, the message was no matter what things look like, “…the Holy seed will be the stump in the land.” God has His people!

If what you have been planning for, working for, believing God for was a Holy seed, then it cannot dry up, burn up or break up but shall come to fruition!  Whatever is birthed by God, initiated by God and received from God cannot fail!  “For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world and this is the victory that overcomes the world even our faith” [1 John 5:4]

It was a time of war (Isaiah 7:1-2), a time to stand (v.9), a time to ask God for a sign (v.11).  God answered and His answer then was His answer now:  I give you Jesus Christ, the living Son of God—undefeatable, inimitable, and unfathomable.
