Today I would like to talk to you about sowing the Word of GOD into our hearts. The Lord has been working on me about this for a week. I’ve been studying Matthew 13:1-9 and it says:
1) Later that same day Jesus left the house and sat beside the lake. 2) A large crowd soon gathered around Him, so He got into a boat. Then he sat there and taught as the people stood on the shore. 3) He told many stories in the form of parables, such as this one: “Listen! A farmer went out to plant some seeds. 4) As he scattered them across his field, some seeds fell on a footpath, and the birds came and ate them. 5) Other seeds fell on shallow soil with underlying rock. The seeds sprouted quickly because the soil was shallow. 6) But the plants soon wilted under the hot sun, and since they didn’t have deep roots, they died. 7) Other seeds fell among thorns that grew up and choked out the tender plants. 8) Still other seeds fell on fertile soil, and they produced a crop that was thirty, sixty, and even a hundred times as much as had been planted! 9) Anyone with hears to hear should listen and understand.” (NLT)
We as Christians need to take in as much of GOD’S WORD as we can!!!! Just to let you know we can never overdose on the WORD!!!! Proverbs tells us to pay attention to GOD’S WORD!!!!!
20) My child, pay attention to what I say. Listen carefully to My WORDS. 21) Don’t lose sight of them. Let them penetrate deep into your heart, 22) for they bring life to those who find them, and heath to their whole body. 23) Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life. 24) Avoid all perverse talk; stay away from corrupt speech. 25) Look straight ahead, and fix your eyes on what lies before you. 26) Mark out a straight path for your feet; stay on the safe path. 27) Don’t get sidetracked; keep your feet from following evil. (NLT)
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of GOD. (NKJV)
When we take time and read and meditate on His WORD, then we are renewing our mind. The WORD of GOD is very important to all of us!!!! Matthew tells us that out of the abundance of our heart the mouth speaks.
33) “A tree is identified by its fruit. If a tree is good, its fruit will be good. If a tree is bad, its fruit will be bad. 34) You brood of snakes! How could evil men like you speak what is good and right? For whatever is in your heart determines what you say. 35) A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. 36) And I tell you this, you must give an account on judgment day for every idle WORD you speak. 37)The WORDS you say will either acquit you or condemn you.” (NLT)
So if we put junk like cussing and slang words into our heart, then that is what is going to come out of our mouth!!!! But if we out GOD’S WORD into our heart, then GOD’S WORD is going to come out of our mouth!!!!
So let us make a decision to put GOD’S WORD into our heart and mouth!!!! 🙂
♥GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND KEEP YOU ALL SAFE♥
