The Word Of God Is Good Seed

………The seed is the word of God. 12 Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. (Luke 8:11-12)

Any farmer knows that you cannot plant a mustard seed and expect quash to come up.  You cannot plant corn seeds and expect turnip greens to come up.  Whatever seed is planted will be the result at harvest time.  The Word of God is good seed.  If that Word is planted, you are guaranteed to receive a good harvest.  If there is one weapon that Satan uses against Christians so that we might doubt God and/or falter in our walk with Him, it is a denial of God’s Word.  He denies us God’s Word by using a number of methods.  He denies us by making us slothful in our daily reading of His word.  He denies us by having us feel that we can come to God’s house to hear the preached word inconsistently.  He denies us by making us think that all we need to do is feel good about the Word and not make it a part of our life.  He denies it by making us feel that Bible Study and Sunday Church School are things of the past.  Know This.  When reading is inconsistent, and when hearing is inconsistent, and when study is inconsistent, you can rest assured that living will also be inconsistent.   We need our daily dose of good seed.  We need our weekly dose of worship, Bible Study,  praise, encouragement and motivation.  Satan does not want us to have it because he knows that when that seed is planted and when that seed germinates, it will produce the kind of living that pleases God.  Satan wants to literally snatch the word away from those who might hear and believe and be saved.    

Don’t allow Satan to snatch the Word from you.  If you are unsaved, he wants you to stay that way so that he might have some company in hell.  If you are saved, he wants to snatch the Word from you so that your life does not effect anyone around you.  He wants to snatch the Word so that you are unable to live as Christ wants you to live and that your living will only please yourself.  He wants to snatch the word from you so that you might think that it is all about you and what you can get.  The Word of God is good seed.  Plant it in your heart.  Make it a part of your life.  Don’t allow it to be taken away.  Believe the Word.  Desire the Word.  Cherish the Word.  Hide it in your heart.  It will produce a good harvest and a life pleasing to Christ.
