Jonathan Ayala: The Transformative Power of Seed
Welcome to another episode of the By His Grace podcast. In today’s episode titled,”Jonathan Ayala: The Transformative Power of Seed” we have a special guest who shares a passion for the concept of planting seeds and what God does with them. Our guest, Jonathan Ayala met the host through the Spark Media Facebook group and their connection was instant. Misty and Jonathan delve into the idea that Earth, our home, is not a place we should wish to escape from, but rather a place designed by God for us to fulfill our destinies. They discuss the significance of planting seeds, both physically and metaphorically, and the faith required to trust in the process. Join us as we explore the power of seeds and the transformative nature of faith on this insightful episode.
Jonathan shared his passion for understanding our purpose on Earth and the significance of being a seed. He emphasized how God created us uniquely for this world, with a destiny to fulfill that no other creature can achieve. Earth, Jonathan believes, is a place where God’s invisibility challenges us to walk by faith and listen to His voice. We are called to die to ourselves, letting go of our current identities, and embrace the identity God has designed for us. Just as in planting a physical seed, there is a process of faith, dying, and transformation that leads to fruitful results.
The conversation expanded to reflect on the importance of time and patience in the process of growth. Just like a seed takes time to sprout and bear fruit, our journey as Christians often involves a continuous sanctification process that takes time to mature. Our faith and trust in God’s promises play a significant role in this process, as faith enables us to partake in the divine nature even before we witness the fulfillment of those promises. It is through walking in faith, believing in what is unseen, that we experience internal transformation and find true pleasure in pleasing God.
* Introduction and Background of Jonathan.
* The Concept of Being a Seed and Planting Seeds.
* Influenced by a pastor’s teaching.
* Previous belief in wanting to escape Earth.
* Recognition that Earth was made by God for us.
* Earth as a place of faith and invisibility of God.
* Importance of planting seeds and dying to self.
* Transformation and being born into God’s identity.
* Analogy of planting physical seeds and having faith for their growth.
* Reaping the Harvest and Divine Promises.
* Receiving the blessings of promises before seeing them.
* Transformation through faith even before manifestation.
* Importance of internal transformation and walking by faith.
* Comparison to Abraham’s faith and righteousness.
* Temporality of Earth and greater value in being transformed by faith.
* Pleasing God through walking in promises now.
* Faith, Action, and Works– Faith as accounted for righteousness.
* Faith requiring action and works.
* Relation to the Bible study “The Struggle Is Real, but So is God”
* Mention of Abraham as an example.
* Purpose of faith and works complementing each other
Here are 3 key takeaways from our conversation:
We are designed for Earth: While many of us may have been taught to long for heaven and escape this earthly realm, it’s important to remember that God created us for a purpose here on Earth. He has given us a unique destiny to walk in, and Earth is the only place where seeds can be planted and bring forth abundant fruit.
Walking by faith: As we plant seeds, whether physically or spiritually, there is a process of faith and belief involved. We may not see the immediate results, but it is in this waiting period that our faith is strengthened and transformed. Ultimately, the real value lies in the internal transformation...
Dreamers Awakening: Unlocking Your Potential for Greatness and Creativity
Welcome back to another enlightening episode of “By His Grace.” In today’s episode, we have the privilege of diving into the incredible journey of Tyler Childs, the founder of Parable International. Tyler’s story is one of faith, surrender, and the power of embracing God’s calling. From working in video production to stepping onto the mission field, Tyler’s life took an unexpected turn that would forever reshape his perspective.
Join us as we explore how Tyler’s obedience led him to launch a non-profit organization dedicated to equipping ministries to pursue creative excellence. Tyler’s authenticity and vulnerability will inspire you to embrace your own God-given dreams and trust in His plan, no matter how unconventional it may seem. Get ready to be motivated to wake up to the greatness within you as we dive into Tyler Childs’ incredible journey on this episode of “By His Grace.”.
Tyler’s journey in video production took an unexpected turn when the pandemic forced him and his family to reevaluate their priorities. What began as a sabbatical and a leap of faith led them to launch the non-profit organization, Parable International, which aims to bring creative excellence to Christian content. Parable International is a ministry dedicated to training creatives to pursue excellence in entertainment. Through media, education, filmmaking, and most recently, literature, we strive to help dreamers achieve their creative callings in life.
Tyler’s story is a testament to God’s guidance and provision as he and his family embarked on a life-changing adventure. From selling their house and embracing a simpler life in a 36-foot RV to navigating the challenges of living on the road with three young children, Tyler shares how surrendering to God’s plan opened doors and brought unexpected opportunities. This journey also led him to write a book, not just for creatives, but for everyone, reminding us that we are all born to be creative.
Prayer & Creativity
We also explore the correlation between prayer and creativity, as Tyler discovered the power of inviting the Holy Spirit into the creative process. The results were astounding as churches and ministries experienced positive shifts in their culture and witnessed the Holy Spirit’s inspiration reflected in their artistic endeavors. Awaken O Dreamer:Your Creativity Awaits
In this episode, Tyler encourages dreamers to wake up and embrace their potential for greatness in various fields, whether it be accounting, engineering, film, or ministry. He emphasizes that everyone has the capacity for imagination and creativity and that God has uniquely called each of us to invite him into our creative pursuits.
As we reflect on Tyler’s story, remember that surrender and trust in God’s plan are vital as we navigate challenges in our lives. Just as Tyler stepped out in faith despite not fully understanding the path ahead, may we also find the courage to follow God’s instructions even when they don’t align with our own understanding.
Lastly, we want to express our appreciation to God for the unique gifts and callings placed in every heart. We pray for a fresh wind of creativity, correction of lies that hinder our progress, and the filling of any voids with wisdom and direction from the Holy Spirit. May we all courageously walk in our callings and awaken the dreamers around us.
