Matthew 13:24 KJV
Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
Look at the gardener who has his soil prepared for seeding, he plants his seed and the soil, rain, and time, take over for that seed to germinate, root and mature to be harvested.
There must be a seed planted for the harvester to reap what was sowed. The knowledgeable understand they are instruments of our Lord the eventual harvester who will reap what you initially have sown.
Know your role in speaking and demonstrating is really seed planting so don’t despair don’t be discouraged, continue being Yeshua’s instruments of seed planting knowing it is The Father in heaven who releases the rain and changes the texture of the sown seeds planted by those willing to continue sharing their blessings as God’s instruments.
Remember a seed can split a rock but it must be planted first. Prayer is the rain to germinate that seed. Blessings to all who continue to sow in the prepared soil.
And let a humble and diligent walking before God, and a frequent judging of yourselves, show a firm belief of the future judgment, though many live as if they were never to give any account at all. This day will come, when men are secure, and have no expectation of the day of the Lord.
The stately palaces, and all the desirable things wherein worldly-minded men seek and place their happiness, shall be burned up; all sorts of creatures God has made, and all the works of men, must pass through the fire, which shall be a consuming fire to all that sin has brought into the world, though a refining fire to the works of God’s hand. What will become of us, if we set our affections on this earth, and make it our portion, seeing all these things shall be burned up? Therefore, make sure of happiness beyond this visible world.
All things past, present, and future, are ever before our Father in heaven: the delay of a thousand years cannot be so much to him, as putting off anything for a day or for an hour is to us.
If men have no knowledge or belief of the eternal God, they will be very apt to think him such as themselves. How hard is it to form any thoughts of eternity! What men count slackness, is long-suffering, and that to us; is giving more time to his own people, to advance in knowledge and holiness, and in the exercise of faith and patience, to abound in good works, doing and suffering what they are called to, that they may bring glory to God.
To have a high opinion of our wisdom is but to flatter ourselves, and self-flattery is the next step to self-deceit. The wisdom that worldly men esteem is foolishness with God. How justly does he despise, and how easily can he baffle and confound it! The thoughts of the wisest men in the world have vanity, weakness, and folly in them.
All this should teach us to be humble, and make us willing to be taught of God, so as not to be led away, by pretenses to human wisdom and skill, from the simple truths revealed by Christ.
Remember, a humble servant gives these messages obedient unto our Lord Yeshua as a Watchman. This I pray for all. ”Our Heavenly Father brings us to the river which bringeth forth fruit so we may partake of its sustenance and be filled spiritually with nurturing wisdom, and humble dedication in service to Yeshua. “Blessings to All.” As you go forward in peace, knowledge, and strength.
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
