“As for what was sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands it. He indeed bears fruit and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty.”Matthew 13:23
Love The Word – Live The Word – Crave The Word – GROW in The Word
It’s incredibly important for us to understand that God never forces his desires on us. He waits patiently—beckoning us to open our hearts fully to him. He gently shows us his love, whispers his perfect plans to us, and waits for us to trust and surrender. With the grace of God, we can till the soil of our hearts, living receptively and surrendered to his loving kindness and perfect will. If we will cultivate a willing heart, God will mold and shape us into children free from the cares of the world and empowered to live Christ-like, fruitful lives.
In this season I find myself needing this more and more. Loving the Word, in the time of my daughter awaiting her Covid Test results. Living the Word, in the time of my husband being laid off. Craving the word MORE AND MORE… as we are fighting a world against the devil Himself. BUT, in all of this; GROWING in the Word. We grow closer as a family. We grow closer to The Lord. We have had to find the Joy and Peace in the middle of the storm.
I urge you to pick up the Flourish Devotional. Each word was written with love and desire to help you grow in the word of God.
I Challenge you today, to meditate. To find where your soil is bearing fruit. What is holding you back? Where can’t you see God rooted in your life.
