He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful, Matthew 13:22.
Beloved, the word of God is the compass that points us to the modus-operandi of God’s kingdom. John described the word as the ancient sacred power responsible for creation in the begining and he called Him God in whom there is life, and this life is the light of men, John 1:1-4. It therefore goes thus, “until we are fully aligned with the word our light will be unstable and an unstable light will result in an unstable life”.
Our text reveals the nature of thorns, they have the capacity to choke the word we have received, reduce the quality and make us unfruitful….They are the cares of this world and the decietfulness of riches.
We live in a generation were many persons run from pillar to post trying to get the best out of life, some are obsessed with the desire to make hands meet, and many more are depressed because they can’t meet the demands of their daily needs. However, it will be disastrous for our hearts to be overwhelmed and burdened with the cares of this world to the detriment of our source of life and stability (the word). Jesus said, Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest, Matthew 11:28….this is instructive. Nothing else can give us rest but Jesus. He is the word of God personified. He knows our needs and He’s willing to help meet them.
Also there are many believers who desire to be rich by all means and are willing to do anything to make this a reality…many have compromised their stands in the faith because of this desperation and many more are now victims of their own message…..the prayer points are now “God bless my hustle and make me rich”. For such persons the desperation lurking in their hearts will take them farther away from their source of stability in life, Jesus (the word) because there is more to it than meet the eyes.
Beloved, the world is a system, and it’s currency for commerce is an idol, God will never make His own subject to the idols of this world, He’ld rather give you the key (Authority) to make the system and it’s idol submit to you. Jesus proved this with concrete evidence from His earthly ministry, whenever a need arises, there is a corresponding supply to meet them, Matthew 14:14-21, 15:32-39,17:27.
My friend we might have been praying the wrong prayer points and asking God the wrong questions….until the key is released, the principality will not fall (submit). it is therefore our responsibility to prepare our hearts for the word to produce good and quality fruit in us. We must take down every idol erected by the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches. Christ alone should be seen in our hearts.
Let’s Pray: Father of love and mercy, unto you we have come for the grace to wait until our change comes…help us acquire the key to daily conquer cosmos, Amen.
God bless you richly ma/sir
