Gen 41:52 “And the name of the second called he Ephraim: For God hath caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction”
Gen 49:22” Joseph is a fruitful bough; a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the run..”
God is the one behind your fruitfulness; it is God that will make your fruitfulness happen.
The first place fruitfulness appeared is in Gen 1:28. It means to produce abundantly; producing or capable of producing the desired result; it also means to be fertile.
So if you are fruitful that means
- You will be seen, you will become obvious. One of the things about fruit is that fruit is seen. That why Jesus said by their fruit you shall know them.
- God will cause you to grow and to increase. You will have financial, spiritual, ministerial, family and business increase, – it means you will be productive – the things that you have been working and seen no result, you are going to see result more than ever before.
- He will cause you to bring forth; God has bring us to the place of delivery. Isaiah 66: says “…shall he bring to the place of birth and not cause to bring forth? In other words God is saying since I told you that 2013 is your year of fruitfulness, your year of bringing forth , that means ‘I am going to put the enabling power/environment for you to bring forth , I am going to put it in you so that when you bring forth, you will not struggle’.
When God says you will be fruitful – it means that there is something that will happen because for what you plant to come out of the ground a breaking forth has to take place and as it does, the fruit comes out of the ground; the fruit is no longer in hiding.
Gen 49:22 makes it clear what fruitfulness is; so it is in place that you and I take the blessings of Joseph as our blessing for 2013. The wall is supposed to be a thing of limitation but the scripture is saying here that ‘his branches run over the wall’– that means there is no limitation, no sealing.
In 2013, get ready for the exposure of your business, talents; get ready to be known more than you have been known before and; it is not a temporary thing, it is not something that comes and goes, it is a blessing that reach over the wall, it is fruitfulness that is beyond the boundary. What you will see in 2013 is not something that is normal; what is in the normal in your life right now is the last of it.
