I appreciate your teaching on the sower in Matthew 13 and Mark 4. It cleared up some things in my understanding.
Our heart is the Soil, and there are things that can hinder the seed of the Word taking root in our hearts.
I liked that part that you taught about our part in how we receive the word, put it to practice and not let the devil steal it. The Word can be choked by the cares of this world, how we need to live by faith in God and His Word.
You taught that offenses coming in could choke the Word, preventing it from taking effect in our hearts as well. I had no offenses that I could recall but came forward and repented just in case.
It was a blessing to have prayer after each lesson to make sure our hearts were right. I went forward a couple of times and God met with me. I don’t want anything to hinder the Word having it’s full effect in my life.
I had asked the Lord before the service to soften and circumcise my heart and after prayer I felt the anointing present as you prayed for us and it did just that.
My prayers seem to get answered quicker; I was blessed with gas money to fill my truck up to keep coming to Bible College.
I am not worried about my need for a place to Oil Paint and Water Color so I can sell my Art to support myself in R.B.I., or a place to stay, or the money needed for the rent, food, gas, or essentials, as well as seed to sow toward God’s will being done in me and through me. I just ask, knock, seek, and praise the Lord daily, hourly, all day long and thank Him for the answers.
