When the Lord plants the seed of an idea in your mind, it is then up to you to either nurture the seed or simply ignore it and let it die. Whatever you decide to do, you have to agree those seeds of ideas, if you collect and help them grow, can have the potential to change your life and the lives of many others in many ways!
What's more, if you have an open mind, your encounter with even one idea in your lifetime can become your personal life changing revelation. As you may know, it has been said: "A revelation is not a revelation until it is a revelation to me!"
So, you could ask: "how important can the revelation of one or more of those ideas be to me? What, by the way, "is a revelation anyway?"
Let me give you some examples of what a revelation can be:
(1) "Information that is newly disclosed, and is especially surprising or valuable."
(2) "A surprisingly good or valuable experience,"
(3)"The revealing of something previously hidden or secret."
(4) "A showing or revealing of divine will or truth."
Therefore, if your mind is open, your encounter with any of those ideas can equal, you guessed it, a revelation!
Now, keep this fact in mind: there are degrees of destiny in all of our decisions. But because we have been given a free will that the Lord will never take away, the decision to pursue - or ignore - an idea must always be ours. You may have the germ of the idea in your head for several months or even two or three or more years. You just have to keep trying to develop it, keep your faith and your time of success will come. This could be the idea you were born to use to help yourself, your family or even the whole world. It could be something you were simply born to do during your lifetime.
Because you are a unique personality, you are the only one in the whole wide world who has the talent, experience and know-how to make your idea blossom and produce beneficial results for all.
When you perceive your ideas as "seeds" to be planted, cultivated and nurtured for your own benefit, the benefit of other people around you and as something the Lord put you here to do, then you must accept the fact that - the harvest is up to you.
