Good morning, Mighty Woman of God! I pray that you are blessed and highly favored of our Lord Jesus Christ, as you follow after Him.
(Matthew 13:3-9), And He told them many things in parables, saying A sower went out to sow. And as he sowed some seeds fell by the roadside, and the birds came and ate them up. Other seed fell on rocky ground, where they had not much soil; and at once they sprang up, because they had no depth of soil. But when the sun rose, they were scorched and because they had no root, thy dried up and withered away. Other seeds fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them out. 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. (Amp. Parallel Bible).
Some of you hear the word but do not understand what God is speaking to you. Therefore you are not able to hold on to the Word of God spoken over your life. You come before God and sit in the congregation acting like you got it all together, but it comes in one ear and goes out the other, and makes no impression. You say that God knows your heart, this is true, and Satan also knows your heart. If the things of the world are not broken up in your heart, then your heart will not be prepared to receive and heed to the Word of God. You must cover the seed (the Word spoken) after hearing the Word of God by meditation and prayer.
Rocky Ground, Some of you have a good impressions of the Word of God, but it is not lasting. You are glad to hear a good sermon, but you will not profit by it. Your heart may melt under the word, but you still have no firm resolution in your will or emotions. Inwardly you are no more affected than a stone; After hearing the Word of God, you are still not united to Christ who is our Root; you still don't fully trust in Him. In worldly terms (you are hard-headed). You might be able to endure in the storm for awhile, but in the end, you will be swallowed up by the devil because you lack roots. The Word of God, just fell on a hard head. God knows that you only have a form of godliness and so does Satan. Satan seeing you as having only a form of godliness he easily swallows up your seeds.
Thorns, I call this stage, just a little stuck. You are at the stage where you are constantly getting stuck by thorns in your life. These thorns hurt when you try to get pass them. Just like rose bushes if you brush up against them you get stuck. No kind of thorn feels good. When you get stuck by a thorn, it is human nature for you to look at the spot where you were stuck. The longer you stay focus on the thorn, you are not fully put your faith in God and are not able to cast all your worries on Him; therefore falling short of benefitting from the Word of God. You are built up in church service by the Word of God, but you are still being overcome by the things of the world. Worldly cares are compared to thorns; they are entangling, vexing, scratching, and their end is to be burned. Toxic and relationships seems to be the main thing that keeps us women from moving away from those thorns. These thorns choke the good seed. You have good seed sowed into your spirit, but those thorns (worldly people, places and things) are great hindrances to your moving into God' purpose for your life.
Good Ground: Fruitfulness. A true woman of God bears good fruit. This does not mean that you will not have stones in it, or no thorns, but because you have hidden the Word of God in your heart and planted the Word of God on good ground nothing will be able to hinder your fruit from growing. A woman bearing good fruit can always feed another woman. Other women should be able to draw from and eat from the fruits that you bare. You cannot feed another woman if your fruit is rotten (bad attitude, gossiping, whoremonger, deceitful and lying spirit). A woman that has sowed seed on good ground is not perfectly free from the remains of sin, but happily freed from the reign of it; meaning you don't quickly run towards sin. You understand the sense and meaning of the Word of God and take care of the seed that God has planting in you. With your fruit right, and your heart honest, your return from God will be hundred, sixty or thirty-fold. Your fruitfulness will graciously accepted by God. PRAISE GOD!
