HOW THE KINGDOM WORKS
“And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground; And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how. For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.”Mark 4:26-28
Gods kingdom is the answer to ALL your needs. God designed a kingdom where He rules and reigns in absolute authority and placed that kingdom within you. Jesus actually said in Luke 17:20-21 that “The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”
In essence, all we’d ever need is within us not without. Even if anyone disappoints you, you take no offense knowing that your source and help is from within.
Like someone rightly said, believers are inside-outside people not outside-inside people. Our life starts from within. Not without!
This kingdom within you has all you’d ever need and desire provided for already, in abundance too! If this is the case, the question then is how do we fully take advantage of this great treasure within us.
We don’t have to be sick again! We don’t have to be broke again! We don’t!
God has made adequate provision for a life that’s way above the elements of this world.
In His parables about the kingdom, the Lord shows us exactly how this kingdom operates and amazingly it’s one of the simplest things a believer can do. Man prefers to complicate things however.
Jesus says that the key responsibility of the believer is to cast seed into the ground.
The seed is the Word, the ground is the heart of a man.
In essence the heart of a man is the production factory. All he’d ever need is within his heart.
He only needs to sow the seed of the Word within his heart and goes to sleep. Sleeping as used by Jesus obviously meant more than just closing the eye at night but letting go of your anxieties and cares.
The Word will do the job. Put pressure on the Word not yourself.
Once the Word is sown it will grow to give a harvest without the sower knowing how!
Many times we want to know how the money will come, how the need will be met, how the matter will be resolved… that’s not your part of the equation.
That’s Gods part. Your job is to sow the seed of the Word.
How is the Word sown? By speaking the Word forth out of your mouth.
The mouth is the tool with which the word is sown in our hearts.
And what is sown will definitely come up as a harvest.
If you don’t like your harvest, change you what you’re sowing.
I Thank You Father for the knowledge of your Kingdom that has come to me today. I thank You for Your Kingdom, where You rule and reign in absolute authority. Thank You for the provisions of this Kingdom that you have made available to us. As I put into practise, the act of sowing the word of God into my heart and speaking forth life from my mouth, I thank You Father for my harvest is sure. In Jesus’ Mighty Name, Amen.
