With so much uncertainty in the world, where do you turn?
There is one hope and that is in Jesus.
In this chaos we are all facing- there is a reason for this , God wants us to draw closer to Him.
To know that He is still in control to stay focused on Him not the disorder.
This parable should help you understand where your walk with God is-Jesus spoke in spiritual truths through parables, here is a story of a farmer scattering seed.
4 While a large crowd was gathering and people were coming to Jesus from town after town, he told this parable: 5 “A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path; it was trampled on, and the birds ate it up. 6 Some fell on rocky ground, and when it came up, the plants withered because they had no moisture. 7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up with it and choked the plants. 8 Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up and yielded a crop, a hundred times more than was sown.”
When he said this, he called out, “Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear.”
Now Jesus will unravel this truth to His disciples-
His disciples asked him what this parable meant. 10 He said, “The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of God has been given to you, but to others I speak in parables, so that,
“‘though seeing, they may not see;
though hearing, they may not understand.’
Now Jesus will break it down for us-
“This is the meaning of the parable: The seed is the word of God. 12 Those along the path are the ones who hear, and then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, so that they may not believe and be saved. 13 Those on the rocky ground are the ones who receive the word with joy when they hear it, but they have no root. They believe for a while, but in the time of testing they fall away. 14 The seed that fell among thorns stands for those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by life’s worries, riches and pleasures, and they do not mature. 15 But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop.
Do you hear the word of God spoken to you?
What soil are you?
Are you focusing in on the troubles you face instead of what God has promised?
Are you receiving God’s word and encouraging others?
God will send people to you that need encouragement not despair, point them to Him and not to the problems, to be faithful in your walk and love them. This is our command from Him, to share the good news, not bad news. My hope today is that you will hear these words and know that this to shall pass, put your hope in Christ. Our time here on earth is short, but our real home is heaven-eternal life with Jesus.
The word of God has sustained and given peace where there has been no peace. No matter what we do or how things turn out, our hope is in Jesus and when we believe this we will find peace beyond our own understanding.
Spread joy and the light of Christ in the midst of darkness.
