Lord,help my heart not to be calloused. Help me to see with my eyes, hear with my ears, understand with my heart and turn, and you would heal me. (Matt 13:15) Help me that I would receive Your Word with joy (v20), that when trouble or persecution comes because of the Word, that I would not fall away (v21), that the worries of this life and deceitfulness of wealth will not choke the Word, making it unfruitful (v22).
Please help me to apply Your Word into my life. Help me to obey Your Word. I will not see far into the future and there will be things too great for me to understand but help me trust You for the next step as Your Word gives the lamp for my feet and a light for my path.
Matt 13:23 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.
Lord, please help me to hear Your Word and understand it, turn from my ways to Yours, and make me fruitful in growing the fruit of Your Word in my life that I might be able to share the healing with others.
