“But the seed on good soil stands for those
with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering
produce a crop”
(Luke 8:15, NIV)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
Sometimes in the natural, we
don’t see how God’s promises are going to come to pass in our lives. It seems
like there are so many obstacles to overcome. But we have to see God’s Word
like a seed. When it’s planted in our hearts, and we water it by thinking the
right thoughts and expecting good things, that little seed begins to grow into
something much, much greater.
Jesus told a parable in Mark,
chapter four. He said, “God’s Word is like a tiny mustard seed. When it is
sown, it is less than all the other seeds, one of the smallest. But when it
grows up, it becomes greater than all.” Notice it goes from being less than all
to being greater than all.
Are you in an overwhelming
situation today, maybe in your health, finances or relationships? Does God’s
promise seem small compared to what you’re facing?
Don’t sit back and think, “Man,
it’s never going to get any better. It’s never going to change.” Instead, sow
the Word by speaking it every single day. Water that seed by staying in faith
because the seed of the Word has supernatural power in it. It will grow and
flourish, and you will see God’s promises come to pass all the days of your
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father God, today I choose to sow the Word of God! Thank You
that it will not return void, but it will accomplish what it was sent forth to
do! Thank You for giving every good and perfect gift to Your children. I bless
Your holy name today and always. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
