God’s Word as Seed

When it comes to renewing your mind, think of God’s word as a seed. This is the best seed that money can buy. However, the crop yielded from that seed will depend upon the quality of the soil in which it is planted.

Because you want God’s word to yield maximum results, it is wise to prepare your heart with prayer before every Bible study session.

Ask the Lord to bring understanding to His word. Ask Him for perseverance to continue your study so that His word takes root within you, even in the midst of trials. Be diligent in casting all your cares upon God in prayer. In that way, you can seek His kingdom first, knowing that He will take care of your other needs.

In time, you will yield an abundant harvest of spiritual fruit for His glory!

Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow:   And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up.   And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth:   But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away.   And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.   And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred.

Mark 4:3‭-‬8 KJV

And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?   The sower soweth the word.   And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.   And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness;   And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word’s sake, immediately they are offended.   And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word,   And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.   And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some an hundred.

Mark 4:13‭-‬20 KJV

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,  Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Galatians 5:22‭-‬23 KJV

http://bible.com/1/gal.5.22-23.KJV

No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.   Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?   Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?   Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?   And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:   And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.   Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?   Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?   (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.   But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.   Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Sorry I have not been posting been going through some stuff. God has me back on track.

Psalm 34:1-22

A Psalm of David, when he changed his behaviour before Abimelech; who drove him away, and he departed.
1I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.
3O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.
4I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
5They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.
6This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.
7The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.
8O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
9O fear the Lord, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him.
10The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.
11Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
12What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good?
13Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
14Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
15The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.
16The face of the Lord is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
17The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.
18The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
19Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.
20He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.
21Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.
22The Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.
Isaiah 57:11-12
11And of whom hast thou been afraid or feared, that thou hast lied, and hast not remembered me, nor laid it to thy heart? have not I held my peace even of old, and thou fearest me not?
12I will declare thy righteousness, and thy works; for they shall not profit thee.
Psalms 132:9
9Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness; and let thy saints shout for joy.

 

Confess with thy mouth


That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
