will you answer?

cellphoneringingIt is my prayer and hope that this message increases your wisdom as God intended.

In Mark 4:1-20: Jesus teaches the crowds in parables, beginning with the Parable of the Sower. Jesus tells a story of an individual sowing seed. The seed is scattered about, landing where it will, and meets with a variety of outcomes. Unable to understand, His disciples ask Jesus to explain the parable. Jesus tells them that the seed represents the Word, which, when sown, faces many obstacles but produces much fruit when it successfully takes root.

Side note: A parable is a story used to illustrate a moral or spiritual lesson, as told by Jesus in the Gospels.

The most amazing thing about the Word of God is this… it’s HIS word, not man’s word, not Regina’s word but, God’s word.
It’s easy to get tripped up when it comes to what people say however, there should be no question as to the proof {validity} when it comes to the word of God, amen? This is why submission to God and His word is crucial to your understanding whereby, the Word of God successfully takes root and transformation in your life begins to take place.

Side note: To clarify the word taking root — it starts to be accepted or established in your spirit!

The Word says:

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is— His good, pleasing and perfect will. — Romans 12:2

When Jesus was teaching beside Lake Galilee, He spoke to the crowd saying:

“Listen! Once there was a man who went out to sow grain. As he scattered the seed in the field, some of it fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some of it fell on rocky ground, where there was little soil. The seeds soon sprouted, because the soil wasn’t deep. Then, when the sun came up, it burned the young plants; and because the roots had not grown deep enough, the plants soon dried up. Some of the seed fell among thorn bushes, which grew up and choked the plants, and they didn’t bear grain. But some seeds fell in good soil, and the plants sprouted, grew, and bore grain: some had thirty grains, others sixty, and others one hundred.” And Jesus concluded, “Listen, then, if you have ears!” (ref: Matthew 13.1-9; Luke 8.4-8)

Oooh bless God! This gets “gooder and gooder” {smile}…

Later on, the twelve disciples asked Jesus to explain the parables (above.)

Jesus said to them, “You have been given the secret of the Kingdom of God, but the others, who are on the outside, hear all things by means of parables, so that…”

Okay pay very close attention to this …

“They may look and look,yet not see;
they may listen and listen,yet not understand.

For if they did, they would turn to God, and He would forgive them.”
(ref: Matthew 13.10-17; Luke 8.9,10)

See that? It’s not complicated. Submission to God, period. Submitting to a relationship and experience with Him because at that point, YOU, are given the secret of the Kingdom of God! He is NO respector of persons! Let go and Let God!

The secret to the Kingdom of God provides understanding! Meaning, a deep clarity of His word when it comes to you! What He means for you, is for you — not someone else. It’s about you! When you open up yourself to Him, the relationship becomes about you and Him, not you and them! So many times people won’t receive their breakthrough because they are SO busy looking at somebody else’s stuff. Blaming others for what’s happening in their life. Condemning and judging people for the choices they make. — Instead of focusing on themselves. WOW!

See this is why some people can’t and won’t ever hear nor receive, let alone see, what’s meant for them:

“And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye when you have a log in your own? How can you think of saying to your friend, ‘Let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye? Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye.” – Matt 7:3-5

Okay let’s get back to the message…

distraction2After Jesus said that, He then asked the disciples a question and begins to break down the parables in layman terms:

“Don’t you understand this parable? How, then, will you ever understand any parable? The sower sows God’s message. Some people are like the seeds that fall along the path; as soon as they hear the message, satan comes and takes it away. Other people are like the seeds that fall on rocky ground. As soon as they hear the message, they receive it gladly. But it does not sink deep into them, and they don’t last long. (OUCH!)

Watch this, watch this now, Jesus continues…

“So when trouble or persecution comes because of the message, they give up at once. Other people are like the seeds sown among the thorn bushes. These are the ones who hear the message, but the worries about this life, the love for riches, and all other kinds of desires crowd in and choke the message, and they don’t bear fruit.”

That’s like worship service. Going to church praising in song, listening to the word, fellowship and upon leaving, the word escapes you! Now, the question comes…Why?

Last but surely not least…Jesus continues to say…

But other people are like seeds sown in good soil. They hear the message, accept it, and bear fruit: some thirty, some sixty, and some one hundred.” (ref: Matthew 13.18-23; Luke 8.11-15)

The things that we experience daily, are NOT the issues. The challenge for most, is standing steadfast, declaring and decreeing while trusting and experiencing the principles of God’s Word whereby, EXPERIENCING a relationship with Him on what’s important — YOU not them! People, things, places and so on and so forth are only distractions that hinder the blessings {revelation} waiting for YOU!

Let go and let God!

May the Lord add a blessing to the hearers and doers of HIS word, in Jesus name! YES and Amen!

Will the Word of God take root in you?

I sincerely love you to everlasting life!

in His grace,

Regina
