The Real Process of Receiving Answers to Our Prayers
Tuesday 27th June 2023
“Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. Luke 8:11
Most Christians do not receive answers to their prayers because they do not know the real process of receiving answers to our prayers.
Jesus Himself said one of His parables is His most important: He said understanding this parable is the foundation for understanding all His other parables.
This particular parable is called the parable of the sower, and it is very powerful.
It’s about a sower who went out to sow seeds on a piece of land. Some seeds fell by the wayside, some fell upon rocks and thorns, and some fell on good ground.
After hearing the parable, the disciples could not understand it, and asked Jesus for its meaning.
Jesus answered and said that the SEED the sower went out to sow was the Word, and that the soil, or ground, it was sown in was the heart of man.
So the seed is the Word, and the ground is the heart of man. But who is the sower?
Romans 10:8 and 9 lets us know that the sower who is to sow the Word of God into the heart (the ground) is you. It also lets us know that the way you sow the Word into your heart is by confessing, or speaking it.
In the parable, those seeds sown on good soil grew up into crops.
In verse 28 of that same chapter, He explains how these crops grow.
Mark 4:28-29 For the earth yields crops by itself: first the blade, then the head, after that the full grain in the head. But when the grain ripens, immediately he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come.”
The earth, or ground, is the heart of man, like Jesus explained. So the heart of man yields crops by itself (see verse above).
But what about the crop itself? The crop that grows out of the heart of man when the Word is spoken in faith. It grows in the heart of man when the Word of God is planted there by confession.
The Word tells us that faith (the crop) comes to the heart of man when the Word of God is heard and spoken (Romans 10:17).
When you speak, you also hear yourself. Faith grows in your heart when you speak or hear the Word of God.
After you plant it, you have to keep on watering it by continually speaking the Word of God. The Bible tells us that the Word of God is not just seed, but also water (Ephesians 5:26).
Faith is the active part of prayer. It is what makes your prayers work.
So many people have wondered how to grow their faith so they can get more answers to their prayers. The simple and sure way to grow your faith is by speaking the Word of God constantly. Like the Bible says, the Word is the seed, and your mouth speaks and sows it into your heart for a harvest! Faith grows and bears fruit in your heart, and your answer manifests immediately when the fruit becomes mature. Glory to God!
Take out time to speak the Word into your heart every day, starting today. Your faith shall grow, and your answers shall be manifested as you keep doing so daily. You will be completely amazed and thankful to God over time, if you keep doing it.
I am speaking and sowing the seed of the Word into my heart every day. I am watering the seeds sown by speaking the Word of God even more. My faith is growing by the day, and I am excelling in everything I do and manifesting the glory of God in everything in my life. Glory to God!
MORE LIGHT (MEDITATE ON AND PRAY WITH THESE)
Mark 4:14-20 The sower sows the word. And these are the ones by the wayside where the word is sown. When they hear, Satan comes immediately and takes away the word that was sown in their hearts.
These likewise are the ones sown on stony ground who, when they hear the word, immediately receive it with gladness; and they have no root in themselves, and so endure only for a time. Afterward, when tribulation or persecution arises for the word’s sake, immediately they stumble.
Now these are the ones sown among thorns; they are the ones who hear the word, and the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things entering in choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.
But these are the ones sown on good ground, those who hear the word, accept it, and bear fruit: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred.”
