From the desk of Steve Shultz:
There is intriguing revelation in this word from Joe Joe Dawson that the Lord gave him.
I love this conversation Joe Joe had with the Lord:
I recently asked the Lord, "God, I want to know how people can get a seed from You and turn it into power." The Lord answered me with 6 "P's" – 6 words to move from seed to power.
What are these 6 P's to God's power? I am not going to give it away...read for yourself and please make sure and forward this powerful word on to others...as it will greatly bless them too! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List go here.)

"The Lord Gave Me 6 Words to Move From Seed to Power"
I recently asked the Lord, "God, I want to know how people can get a seed from You and turn it into power." The Lord answered me with "6 P's" – 6 words to move from seed to power.
P is for Planted
The first "P" is the word planted. God plants seeds of purpose, destiny, callings and giftings into people. Genesis 1:26 says, "Then God said, 'Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness, let them have dominion...over all the earth.'" Whenever God wants to do anything on the earth, God drops a seed from Heaven into someone and then that person is supposed to bring that thing forth. This is why I always say, God wants to work in you to work through you.
"Your identity as a son or daughter of God manifests itself in power. If you do not identify yourself as a son or daughter of God then you will not walk in the power."
God takes a seed of destiny, purpose, leadership, prophetic gift, singing or other giftings and He plants that seed inside of you. In the natural, if we want to plant something, what do we do? We plant a seed in good soil and cultivate it until it produces something. How does God do that? God plants His seed inside of your spirit and entrusts you to see that seed to full fruition and to bring it to pass.
"Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is the Lord. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters..." (Jeremiah 17:7-8). Do you trust what God has planted inside of you? If you do trust what the Lord has given you then that seed He planted inside of you will produce fruit.
P is for Presence
The second "P" is presence. When God plants a seed inside of you, you must take that seed and plant yourself in the presence of God. The presence of God is just like those rivers of living water in Jeremiah 17:8. When you plant your life in the presence of God, your purpose, dream, calling, and destiny will start to come forth. Why is that? Because the seed of God will never grow outside of God's presence.
If you are outside the presence of God and try to make your destiny happen in the natural it will not work. When we try to accomplish our purpose in the flesh then we grow tired and weary and unsuccessful. But when we plant ourselves in the presence of God then the seed inside of us will begin to grow. God plants dreams inside of you but in order to make the dream work then you have to go back to God and then the dream will work.
P is for Promise
The third "P" is the promises of God. The seeds of God are the promises of God. Every promise you have ever gotten from the Word of God or in the secret place with God is a seed God has given you. When you take those seeds of promises that God has given you and plant them in the presence of God then amazing things will begin to happen. Have you ever felt like you weren't progressing in your purpose or your destiny and then you get into a place of prayer and those seeds of promise start to come alive in you? Why? Because you are in the presence. Seeds of promise will start to come to pass as we plant ourselves in the presence of God. (Photo via Flickr)
P is for Prophecy
The fourth "P" is prophetic words. How many times have you had a prophet, or an apostle or another person release a prophetic word over you and immediately when you hear it you knew it was straight from God? That prophetic word was a seed that God took from Heaven and put it into that person and dropped it right into your spirit.
Many people have journals full of prophetic words that have not yet come to pass but those seeds are still inside of you. If those seeds are inside of you then they are either buried or planted. But if those seeds are planted, that means that in the right season it will come to life and grow. So many seeds of prophetic words are lying dormant inside of the people of God but they are about to come to life and start coming forth.
P is for Produce
The fifth "P" is produce. John 12:24 says, "Unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and breaks open, it remains alone; but if it breaks open, it produces much grain." Prophetic words and promises break open in the presence of God and like seeds they start to produce fruit.
If I had a tomato plant that I wanted to produce tomatoes and I picked it up and carried it around instead of planting it, would it produce anything? If I took that same tomato plant and planted it again and then uprooted it and placed it on a shelf for a couple of weeks, is that plant going to grow or produce anything? No! That makes no sense. Seeds can only produce fruit if they stay planted.
There are many seeds of promise and prophetic destiny inside of you that have not come to pass yet. Our goal is not only to do whatever God has called us to do but to produce fruit from the seeds He has planted inside of us.
Matthew 7:17 says, "...Every good tree bears good fruit." When God plants a seed in you, if you are producing fruit from that then you are a good tree. When we produce anything from a seed God has placed inside of us it is never just for us or our personal benefit. God has called us to produce fruit because the fruit from that seed He planted inside of us has more seeds of God inside of it.
"Whenever God plants a seed inside of you, God sees you from Heaven and entrusts you with that dream of His heart."
Think about a natural piece of fruit. Fruit has more seeds inside of it. It is the same way with the fruit God wants us to produce from our lives; it is never just for us. What if you are called to be a worship leader and that seed really starts producing fruit in your worship leading? Is that just for you to lead worship? No, it's so that the fruit of your life is able to bless everyone around you. What if God calls you to be an entrepreneur? Is it just so you can make a six-figure or even seven-figure salary to enjoy just for yourself? No, it is so that your business can sow into the Kingdom and employ 200 people and bless those families.
P is for Power
The sixth "P" is power. Whenever the seed of God starts to produce fruit in your life, it also brings forth God's power. Why did Shammah stand in the field of lentils in 2 Samuel 23:11? The lentils gave them power. They could eat them, sell them, or trade them for more important things. Shammah knew that because those lentil plants were producing that they also had power.
When you are walking in and producing all that God has called you to, then you will be walking in the power of God. You only get the power from staying planted.
We must walk in the presence of God because the presence of God makes us walk in humility. When you are humble, God will give you His power.
Your identity as a son or daughter of God manifests itself in power. If you do not identify yourself as a son or daughter of God then you will not walk in the power. When you know your true identity in God then you will have the confidence of the One who has called you and given you His power. When you know your identity and you are confident in God's power then you will be able to do great exploits. (Photo via Pixabay)
Whenever God plants a seed inside of you, God sees you from Heaven and entrusts you with that dream of His heart. He could give it to anyone but when God gives you a seed He has chosen you.
The 6 "P's" from seed to power are: planted, presence, promises, prophetic words, produce and power. God accomplished these things in you because He has chosen you, and He has planted that seed inside of you because He wants to give you His power for the Kingdom of God!
