Don’t Minimize Your Influence.
“Another parable spake He unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.” Mathew 13:33
You are probably familiar with yeast, a raising agent used by bakers. That is what the Bible refers to as a leaven. It is small and inconsequential. The Living Bible version brings it home better: “He also used this example: “The Kingdom of Heaven can be compared to a woman making bread. She takes a measure of flour and mixes in the yeast until it permeates every part of the dough.”
All you need in a loaf of bread is a very small quantity of yeast compared to the dough; but when you mix it into the dough, it makes it makes the entire dough rise and fill the baking pan. In fact if you are an inexperienced baker, the dough could rise and overflow the baking pan.
God expects us to have the same effect in the world. Your world should experience a change just because you are there. You will be surprised how many people have had encounter with the Lord but still feel very inadequate when it comes to making impact. The lie often told by the devil is no one knows you and no one will listen to you; so keep your mouth shut. The text tells us how much effect a little leaven could have on three measures of meal; you see there is something that God had hidden inside you, which is far more powerful and influential than whatever the devil is doing around you. You carry a treasure.
You have the necessary ingredients within you to positively affect your environment than all the satanic activities going on. Take a quality decision to start planting heaven no matter how little and it will shock you the level of the impact you will make.
