The parable of the sower

Taking our text from the Account of Apostle Matthew in Matt 13:1-9, 18-23.

The parable is about a sower(farmer)/(God) who went about to plant as he scattered the seeds (this represents the word of God), they fell on different paths (This paths represents individuals ๐Ÿ’“)

Matt.13.4 – And as he sowed, some seeds fell by the roadside, and the birds came and ate them up.
Matt.13.19 – While anyone is hearing the Word of the kingdom and does not grasp and comprehend it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is what was sown along the roadside.

The first group of people came with a prepared ๐Ÿ’“s. God responds to us when we call and if we aren’t prepared we won’t be able to apply the instructions/principles given by him immediately giving room for the devourer to steal it through procastination or forgetfulness.

Matt.13.5 – Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they had not much soil; and at once they sprang up, because they’ve had no depth of soil.
Matt.13.6 – But when the sun rose, they were scorched, and because they had no root, they dried up and withered away.

Matt.13.20 – As for what was sown on thin (rocky) soil, this is he who hears the Word and at once welcomes and accepts it with joy;
Matt.13.21 – Yet it has no real root in him, but is temporary (inconstant, lasts but a little while); and when affliction or trouble or persecution comes on account of the Word, at once he is caused to stumble [he is repelled and begins to distrust and desert Him Whom he ought to trust and obey] and he falls away.

The second group of people, receive the word with enthusiasm probably because they just heard the rhema ๐Ÿ˜† for the first time or maybe they became charged by association (Their friends kept talking and living the Kingdom life) so current flowed in their direction.
At that moment the word had potential of thriving but because it didn’t have deep roots they didn’t understand and didn’t count the cost of applying the new principles they just heard, they easily changed their convictions when they’re faced trials realizing they didn’t bargain for the cross just the ๐Ÿ‘‘.
The Crown comes with the Cross

Matt.13.7 – Other seeds fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them out

Matt.13.22 – As for what was sown among thorns, this is he who hears the Word, but the cares of the world and the pleasure and delight and glamour and deceitfulness of riches choke and suffocate the Word, and it yields no fruit.

These group of people receive the word, they are indifferent and their outward stance shows they’re embracing the word but their inner man outrightly rebels against this word, choking and suffocating the word as it comes.
These people find it difficult to lay aside things that easily beset them…
They find themselves at a cross road not willing to posses a Conviction they could die for, they leave their walk with God to chance/fate.

Matt.13.8 – Other seeds fell on good soil, and yielded grain – some a hundred times as much as was sown, some sixty times as much, and some thirty.

Matt.13.23 – As for what was sown on good soil, this is he who hears the Word and grasps and comprehends it; he indeed bears fruit and yields in one case a hundred times as much as was sown, in another sixty times as much, and in another thirty.

The fourth group of people had prepared hearts hence the word was able to take root, because the the root ran deep their growth was distinct and they brought different quantity of fruits some 30% some 60% some 100%, the different measure depends on how much of these ingredients Preparedness, deep roots and conviction the individual applied in their growth.

LESSON

WHEN THE WORD OF GOD COMES IT COMES TO DIFFERENT PERSONS HENCE THIER REACTION TO THE WORD DIFFERS
(NO WONDER SOME RECEIVE THEIR MIRACLE FASTER THAN OTHERS AND SOME GO HIGHER THAN OTHERS EVEN WHEN THEY’RE BOTH FEEDING FROM THE SAME SOURCE)

WHEN SHARING THE WORD WE SHOULD CONDITION THE HEARTS OF PEOPLE THROUGH THE HELP AND WISDOM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT SO THEY CAN GET THE BEST FROM THE STUDY.

WE CAN ONLY RECEIVE FROM GOD IF WE’RE RECEPTIVE, AND OPEN BUT FOR ESSENTIAL GROWTH WE MUST POSSES THE COMPLETE NUTRIENTS. (PREPARATION, DEEP ROOTS AND DISTINCT CONVICTIONS).

Few Lessons From 2019

The year 2019 has been so far an amazing year for me and my family, in this year I have had tremendous growth on the spirit than any other year.

I’ve come to understand that my faith though small must have depth to create the impact God wants for my generation.

I’ve Come to understand that his ways are indeed not my ways and I must trust that he has my best interest at heart.

I’ve come to understand that we breakthrough via prayers and a consistent intimacy with our Creator. “Koinonia”

I’ve come to realize that God is never too late ๐Ÿ˜‰.No matter how long you’ve waited, he’s always right on time for his own. Yeah the waiting period isn’t always sweet but putting up the right attitude while waiting is very important because Bro
James said patience when it’s done with us can make us perfect…Hahaha ๐Ÿ˜‚I was in that school for awhile, boy is the curriculum fun? ๐Ÿ˜’ No It wasn’t and it isn’t but we’ve got to keep on to get a tangible result.

I’ve come to understand Words are cheap, Action sets the vehicle in motion… people really remember you for how you acted towards them, what you said to them, how you handled situations and not just by what you said to them…

I’ve come to understand that true friendship indeed exist ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—. Trust me, I does… Just keep praying and believing God, he’ll bring one your way but I just hope you’ll be open enough to let them in .

I’ve always known that God answers prayers but, in this year I’ve been the object of his love ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜and the answers were right on time.

I have a lot to say buh I’ll stop here for got to go back to bed, have a busy day tomorrow.
