Today’s word is from Mark 4:24-25 (NLT)
Then he added, “Pay close attention to what you hear. The closer you listen, the more understanding you will be given—and you will receive even more. To those who listen to my teaching, more understanding will be given. But for those who are not listening, even what little understanding they have will be taken away from them.”
The Amplified translation says this…
“Then He said to them, “Pay attention to what you hear. By your own standard of measurement [that is, to the extent that you study spiritual truth and apply godly wisdom] it will be measured to you [and you will be given even greater ability to respond]—and more will be given to you besides. For whoever has [a teachable heart], to him more [understanding] will be given; and whoever does not have [a yearning for truth], even what he has will be taken away from him.”
Faith comes by HEARING, and HEARING by the Word of God… Doubt and unbelief come by HEARING, and HEARING the words of the master deceiver, the devil.
The Lord gives each believer a measure of faith as a gift, but hearing the Word, meditating on the Word, and confessing the Word activates and increases our faith!
When we listen to the Word, when we expose ourselves to the truth of the Word through HEARING, the Word enters our innermost beings through the ear-gate in seed form.
The loving powerful Word then begins to grow and take over our understanding, our minds, our will and our emotions. The seeds grow trees and the trees bear fruit, and the fruit is the manifestation of every blessing of the Lord that belongs to us.
See yourself as a farmer…
Words are seeds and as you listen to and hear the words you speak as well as the words others speak, seeds are being sown into your life that will produce a harvest. As you do what Jesus commands us to do, and you take heed to and listen to His Word deliberately, you begin to plant your future harvest.
As you hear the Word... healing, prosperity, favor, right relationships and every promised blessing goes through your ear-gate and gets planted deep on the inside of you in seed form, and be assured, every one of those seeds will grow trees that will bear a harvest, some 30, some sixty and some one hundred-fold.
