The Fruitfulness Affirmation.

And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
 
 – Genesis 1:28 [ESV]

The base scripture for the fruitfulness affirmation is the parable of the sower. In this parable, Jesus speaks of the different paths the seed of the Word can fall on and the resulting levels of fruitfulness. Our hope is that everyone is encouraged to be a good soil who receives the seeds of the Kingdom well and bears much fruit.  

And he told them many things in parables, saying: “A sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seeds fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured them. Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they did not have much soil, and immediately they sprang up, since they had no depth of soil, but when the sun rose they were scorched. And since they had no root, they withered away. Other seeds fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them. Other seeds fell on good soil and produced grain, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. He who has ears, let him hear.”

“Hear then the parable of the sower: When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what has been sown in his heart. This is what was sown along the path. As for what was sown on rocky ground, this is the one who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy, yet he has no root in himself, but endures for a while, and when tribulation or persecution arises on account of the word, immediately he falls away. As for what was sown among thorns, this is the one who hears the word, but the cares of the world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and it proves unfruitful. As for what was sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands it. He indeed bears fruit and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty.”

– Matthew 13: 3-9; 18-23 [ESV]

I am good soil, I receive the word of God’s kingdom with understanding and bear a hundredfold fruit. (Matthew 13:22-23)

I am fruitful, for when God blessed me, He said so. Therefore, I walk in fruitfulness and obey the command of the Lord. (Genesis 1:28)

I am exceedingly fruitful, for the Lord has made me so. I bear nations and kings come forth from me. (Genesis 17:6)

I am fruitful, for Jehovah Rehoboth has made room for me. (Genesis 26:22)

I am fruitful, for the Lord gives me rains from heaven. He fills me with fruitful seasons and satisfies my heart with gladness. (Acts 14:17) 

In Jesus name, Amen.

SELAH
