How to study the Word Part 3

In Part 2 of this series, I talked about meditating on the word of God and I laid emphasis on the fact that focusing on the word and thinking about it always is key and extremely productive.

Since I have discussed why you need to study the word and how to, finally I want to talk about what is so special about the word, what makes the word different from every other thing and why the result of studying the word exceed any other thing.

The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit and they are life. John 6:63b

The sower soweth the word Mark 4:14

Jesus spoke these verses!

Do you know the seed of corn in a farmer's hand is useless and just dry seed until he sows it into the ground then it can germinate?

The word of God is a seed and it is full of life, but until you sow it into your heart by reading and meditating, it is of no use to you. It will just be a book sitting on your coffee table, but the day you begin to consistently study, you are planting it into your heart and as Jesus said in Mark 4:26-29, a farmer plants a seed and he goes to sleep, rise night and day and does not know how the seed grows but once harvest time comes, he just comes to harvest so also is the word of God.

By sowing into your heart, you don't know how it will solve your problems or bring a change to your situation, but just trust it and keep studying and meditating, when it is time, your harvest will come.

It is only a matter of time, just like the seed of corn it will first bring forth the blade, then the ear and then the full corn, then the farmer can go harvest.

For you too, it is only a matter of time, gradually your change will come and your harvest will be evident for all to see. People might not see your days of sowing the word of God into your heart but they will all see and celebrate your change with you in Jesus name.

God bless you.
