Something I’ve been pondering since reading about the sower of the seed. People will get free, but they won’t stay free. It’s like the sower of the seed there’s a lot of stuff in the way
I think one of our prayers needs to be Mark 4:9 And he said, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”
The sower of the seed parable is pretty basic. These are the key points: you have the seed, which represents the Word, and the soil, which represents the heart. You have the things that prevent the Word from getting into and taking root in your heart. Then you have instructions about how to get the Word into your heart in a way that will bear fruit. I truly believe this is key. What I mean is,. We have to get this in our heart where it stays.
The word does not need to go by the wayside. It doesn’t need to fall on Stony ground,. And it doesn’t need to be consumed by thorns which is all the outside influences. We want it to take root, which means other stuff in the heart has to get out. We need to see it, hear it, confess it and visualize it. To see ourselves walking in freedom.
Many times we have a giant that we have to face, maybe you need to see yourself as the giant. See yourself walking in righteousness when the trials come before you. Visualize yourself being the conqueror.
