Make Your Heart Ready For The Word

 

“For thus saith the Lord to the men of Judah and Jerusalem,
Break up your fallow ground, and sow not among thorns” (Jeremiah 4:3).


Breaking up the “fallow
grounds” of your heart and making it ready for the Word is your responsibility. You have to cultivate your spirit; that means prepare it for the
entrance of God’s Word. In the scriptures, the Word of God is likened to a seed (Luke 8:11). The seed of the Word is designed to produce in you
a harvest of what it talks about; health, prosperity, peace, joy, abundance, and victory. But if the heart is not made ready for the entrance of the
Word it will not produce the desired results.


When a farmer cultivates his land, the
first thing he does is to dig and stir it up; he ploughs it. Now, the Bible tells us to stir up the gift of God in us. That gift is the Holy Spirit,
and one way to stir up His power in you is through speaking in tongues. When the power is stirred, it becomes easy for the Word of God to get into
your spirit and sink deep into your consciousness.

 

The second thing a farmer does in preparing his
land for sowing is to fertilize the land, and we fertilize our spirits through prayer. Through prayer, your spirit is conditioned and positioned
rightly to receive the Word of God. Christians who pray often
and accurately are always synchronized with God’s perfect will for their
lives. They are positioned in God’s place, in God’s time, for God’s purpose, in God’s way.

 

When your spirit is cultivated, you’ll
keep experiencing a harvest of the Word in your life. Never allow your heart lie fallow.
Meditate on the Word and pray regularly, and your spirit
will produce for you a harvest of the Word.


Confession
I’m enabled by the Spirit of God to consistently cultivate my recreated human spirit, making it a suitable
environment for the Word of God to grow, prevail and produce results of what it talks about in my life. Through the Word that I receive today, the
glory of God is manifested in my life and expressed in everything I do, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
