Once upon a time, Jesus told his disciples a story about a farmer that went to sow using a parable. He said ”a farmer planted seeds (Matthew 3:23). As he scattered the seed, some of it fell on the road, and birds ate it. Some fell in the gravel; it sprouted quickly but didn’t put down roots, so when the sun came up it withered just as quickly. Some fell in the weeds; as it came up, it was strangled by the weeds. Some fell on good earth, and produced a harvest beyond his wildest dreams.” stories?” Parables are used to teach children wisdom and the ability to understand. Sometimes you may have to do some serious thinking and meditation to be able to decode the meaning.
The Holy Spirit gives insight
You need the insight of God to be able to decode the parables of Jesus and many of the word spoken by the prophets because many ears are open but do not hear a thing, many eyes are awake but do not see a thing however you are blessed to have the Holy Spirit in you that gives the insight to understand the word of God. This is what Jesus said from verses 11 to 15 of the same chapter that “you have been given insight into God’s kingdom. You know how it works. Not everybody has this gift, this insight; it has not been given to them. Whenever someone has a ready heart for this, the insights and understandings flow freely. But if there is no readiness, any trace of receptivity soon disappears. That is why I tell stories” said Jesus, to create readiness, to nudge the people toward a welcome awakening. In their present state, they can stare till doomsday and not see it, listen till they are blue in the face and not get it.”
The Meaning of the Harvest Story (Verses 18-23)
It is important how we receive the word of God. Jesus explained the parable as follows: “When anyone hears news of the kingdom and does not take it in, it just remains on the surface, and so the Evil One comes along and plucks it right out of that person’s heart. This is the seed the farmer scatters on the road. The seed cast in the gravel—this is the person who hears and instantly responds with enthusiasm. But there is no soil of character, and so when the emotions wear off and some difficulty arrives, there is nothing to show for it.
“The seed cast in the weeds is the person who hears the kingdom news, but weeds of worry and illusions about getting more and wanting everything under the sun strangle what was heard, and nothing comes of it. The seed cast on good earth is the person who hears and takes in the News, and then produces a harvest beyond his wildest dreams.”
The as the Sole Instrument
The Word of God is the sole instrument we need to achieve whatever height that we aspire to become. The Bible says in the book of Hebrew 4:12-13 that ”the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” meaning according to the Message translation: God means what he says. What he says goes. His powerful Word is sharp as a surgeon’s scalpel, cutting through everything, whether doubt or defense, laying us open to listen and obey. Nothing and no one can resist God’s Word. We can’t get away from it—no matter what”
The impact of the Word in You
Having the Word inside you is having all that you need to achieve the set down goals of your Business. That is why Jesus said in the book of John 15:7 that ”If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.” The resources, skills, strategies, capital and the wisdom to make it to the top and dominate your world are in the word of God and the word is inside you. As a beginner, everything that you need to start up your own business is inside you, but many people still outward for the way to their success. The great resource that you need to become prosperous is the knowledge of the word of God. The Word is the solution to all man’s problems and challenges. The more of it you have, the more confidence you will be.
Joshua was told to get a hold of the word and that is why he was a success all through. In Joshua 1:8 he was instructed as follows ”This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” The World is all that you need to do a great and mighty thing in your line of business because it is God’s plan that you have all prosperity. Meaning that you have been programmed to succeed, excel, defeat, and dominate.
Go for the Word Always
It is your responsibility to sort it for you. That you have been programmed to win does not mean that it will happen automatically. You need to work it out just like it is commonly said that ”everyone should work out his or her salvation.” You have a unique life and a unique destiny to be fulfilled, but they are all concealed in the word of God. Sometimes, Entrepreneurs might be too busy not to have enough time to study the word of God and get a deep insight into how it relates to their business. So when a difficult situation arises they are tempted to use the system of the world to sort it out when the solution is in the Word. Jesus said let not your heart be troubled!
