Prepare Cultivate my Heart

Day 3

The parable of the soils shares some interesting thoughts about rocky soil. 

A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path; it was trampled on, and the birds ate it up.  Some fell on rocky ground, and when it came up, the plants withered because they had no moisture. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up with it and choked the plants. Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up and yielded a crop, a hundred times more than was sown.” Luke 8:5-8

"And those beside the road are those who have heard; then the devil comes and takes away the word from their heart, so that they may not believe and be saved.  "And those on the rocky soil are those who, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no firm root; they believe for a while, and in time of temptation fall away. Luke 8:12-13 

Rocky soil must be cultivated if anything can grow there. The Rocks must be taken out so that the plant has a chance to take root. 

Just because we hear a good message or read a great verse doesn't mean that it will stick with us. In order for it to have a lasting effect it must become part of us. The only way for the seed of God to grow and help us mature is for the rocks to be removed and for the roots to go deep!

He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, Which yields its fruit in its season And its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers. Psalm 1:3

Sometimes these rocks are the underlying doubts, old habits and choices that prevent us from fully following Jesus. Maybe it is time to move those rocks out and allow the word of God to fully grow inside your heart!
Cultivate my heart Lord. Take out anything that is blocking your word from taking root. I want to grow deep deep roots that can withstand any temptation that comes.
