“But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown” (Matthew 13:23 NIV).
In one of my previous devotionals I wrote about an ornamental cherry tree that wasn’t doing all too well. After it had been transplanted into our yard it lost practically all its leaves and looked so frail. We had even considered giving up on it and getting a new one but then the Lord spoke to me.
And now having gone through 8 seasons in 2 years this tree is a winner. It has become very strong and its leaves have grown considerably in number and size and beauty of color. There it stands now in its destiny giving shade to our house and shelter for a birds nest. Glorious, glorious I tell you!
You go through your seasons as well and sometimes it seems that it’s too hard for you and you think “Am I ever going to make it”? Just hang in there, what the Lord has declared over you shall come to pass. You are to be one that through hearing and understanding His word will bear the maximum, a hundredfold of what He sowed into your life to the glory of the Father.
Have a wonderfully blessed day!
