Personally, I tend to worry about all of the responsibilities I have and what’s to come in the future. But I know that God has told us not to worry about tomorrow. So I need to dig into the scriptures more and get a clearer revelation of how much God loves me and how he is going to take care of me. When I get that deep into my heart, I won’t constantly be worrying about tomorrow, and the seed sown in my heart will not be choked. When I become accountable to the word that is sown in my life, I can be the good soil. This is where I can hear the word, accept it, and produce crop, and that is where God wants me to be.
As I sat in class at the Bible school, the Lord pricked my heart concerning something in my life. Wow, I was just sitting there and He brought it to me. A bad seed would have taken root if the Holy Spirit hadn’t spoken to me. The instructor wasn’t even lecturing on the thing that was brought to light for me, but the Holy Spirit was working. So what did I do? I took care of it right then. Thank goodness I spend time in the Word, prayer, and listen to what the Holy Spirit is saying. In a couple of minutes it was uprooted and gone!
Then there’s been the time when a word is spoken and I have taken that and let it be sowed into my heart. The devil has tried to say that this blessing will not come into your life. “Who do you think you are anyway?” he would whisper to me.
The promise is mine. I have to water it with the Word and stand firm. The truth takes root and the harvest is coming in. I am not anyone or anything special in this world, but with the Lord God Almighty….I am His child. I am a joint heir. I am more than a conqueror and I am called by His name. He has a wonderful plan for me and He’s called me by name and He is going to bring it to pass in my life. Why? He loves me. His love is so great that it is beyond comprehension. I must keep letting the Word and the Spirit work on me and committing my way unto Him. He is ’STRONG’ in me and I will accomplish all that He has planned for me and will receive all His blessings!
