JESUS IN PROPHECY Part 1: Like A Shoot Out Of Dry Ground.

| Spiry Tee

"For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, And as a root out of dry ground. He has no form or comeliness; And when we see Him, There  is no beauty that we should desire Him."
Isaiah 53:2 NKJV

It takes unique qualities for a green, tender shoot to grow out of dry ground (desert). The harmful environment of the desert makes it impossible for herbs to thrive but Jesus is likened to a tender plant and a root that does not need its environment to flourish.

This prophecy of Isaiah shows that Jesus would be in the world scorched dry by sin and death but He would be that breath of fresh air in a stinking world. The Lord Jesus would be full of life in the midst of a dead world.

The quality of life in Jesus is yours too. If any man is in Christ he is a new creation whose life is all from God. By the grace of God, you have been equipped to thrive in your God-life in the world. You are in the world but not of the world.

No matter how dry, sinful, poverty-stricken, or deadly your environment is, the life of God in you will be victorious. You're limitless in potential and ability. Like a root out of a desert you will spring forth.

The only ingredient the tender plant needed to flourish anywhere is the presence of God. "My servant grew up in the Lord ’s presence like a tender green shoot, like a root in dry ground..." (Isaiah 53:2 NLT).

In the Lord's presence anything dry can produce fruit and everything dead can come back to life. Ask Aaron whose dry rod budded, blossomed and bore almonds just overnight in the presence of the Lord (Numbers 17:8).

Abide in the presence of Jesus and you will bear fruit in dry places. You will experience life in dead environments. The life of God will gain ascendancy over your spirit, soul and body.

I live and flourish like a root in dry ground.
