After Getting The Seed, Why Wasting It?



I have intentions to meet daily with God as much as I can. So, I carved out morning time to spend with him. Most morning, I put him first when I wake up. Although not lately. That is probably how some people are.

This burdens my heart. Jesus is the seed of life. I either grow in life or I don’t. We can’t grow, be anything without him. It’s not just possible!
Many of us decided to throw away or part with the seed of life. But as shown in Matthew 13, one of these 4 things happens:

1. The birds find it and eat them after you thrown away your seed.

The enemies come and get you caught up in discouragement, despair or doubt. He steals clarity regarding these words and replaces it with confusion. Nothing takes root.

2. They fall on shallow soil with rock underneath. Plants spring up quickly, then die in the sun because they don’t go deep. Your heart is not prepared to embrace it and the insecurity and worry underneath prevents it from growing. Trials become issues that cut off the life God wants to grow in you. Nothing takes deep root, so you fall off when heavy winds blow!

3. Thorns choke out the tender growth.
Distractions of the world (phone, schedules, agendas, TV shows, worries and worldly pursuits) crowd out the faith, hope and love God desires to grow within you.

4. They grow deep into fertile soil.
Deep within you, roots grow. They reach not just the surface level of your being, but the inner heart-places of your being.

They change you from the inside out with true and lasting transformation. This happens, when you take good care of the seed.

To let God in you, into the deep, is to have your life deeply changed. And not really Changed, but rather an Exchanged life. By giving your life to Jesus and you taking up His life.

What can you do to cultivate fertile ground? How can you prepare your heart to receive the best of God that will really make your life brighter?

Here are couples of idea and resources

1. Seek God with humility: Be prepared to have him point out areas in your life He wants to change.

2. Get a good daily devotional text. For example, I am a contributor to the 365-day (in)Courage devotional called, “A Moment to Breathe.” It is a great way to start your day.

3. Be a prayerful person. You don’t just sit and watch movies! But, rather live your life as the bible recommended in 1 thessalonian 5:17: Pray continually

4. Be obedient: Try to live an obedient life in all what you are doing. In your daily life, live an obedient life because this will make God happy over your life.
