Luke 8:4–8 (NKJV) [The Parable of the Soils] says, “And when a
great multitude had gathered, and they had come to Him from
every city, He spoke by a parable: ‘ A sower went out to sow his
seed. And as he sowed, some fell by the wayside; and it was
trampled down, and the birds of the air devoured it. Some fell on
rock; and as soon as it sprang up, it withered away because it
lacked moisture. And some fell among thorns, and the thorns
sprang up with it and choked it. But others fell on good ground,
sprang up, and yielded a crop a hundredfold.’ When He had said
these things He cried, ‘He who has ears to hear, let him hear!’”
This story (parable) is showing how important the Word of God is
to us. The 1 st set of people described in the parable are the ones
that don’t understand the Word, so the devil just takes it from
them. The birds represent Satan.
If you are standing for healing or finances, then you need to get
scriptures and plant them in your heart. How do you do that? You
go over them continuously, memorizing them, and then just
meditate on them day after day.
Notice that the devil cannot steal the Word from the other 3 types
of people. This 1 st group of people heard the Word, but didn’t
receive the Word. They didn’t apply it to their lives.
We will talk about the other 3 groups of people in the next blog!
Which group do you belong to?!
