The Seed is the Word of God

When God whispers to us, it is a valuable treasure. The treasure of God’s Word is a seed full of promise. It can eventually grow into a fruit-bearing action and can even become a great and prosperous tree. Jesus explains this in Luke 8:11:
“Now the parable is this: The seed is the Word of God.” In that simple phrase, Jesus shows us that the power of multiplication is found exclusively in the literal words of God’s spoken Word to you.
When we communicate to others, we rarely think of how powerful our communication is. We may say, “Oh well, I didn’t really mean it;” or, “I was just kidding,” or, “I was just thinking out loud” without taking into consideration how powerful the communication was that we made to another person. Through the years, I have noticed times when my casual communications, or sometimes even small criticisms, became seeds of bitterness in people’s hearts. Those bitter seeds choked out many good aspects of their life because a root of bitterness grew.
On the other hand, I’ve seen beautiful, wonderful words of encouragement become seeds of life which caused people to make changes that completely restructured their life, their children’s lives, and now their grandchildren’s lives for the better.
What I’ve shared with you are the seeds and fruit of human words. But God’s Words are beyond human ~ they are divine Words of life that spring up into everlasting life when He speaks to us! Even the quietest whisper must be treasured, cared for and nurtured, because it will grow into something wonderful in your life!
When a seed is planted in the ground some of the most important elements for the seed to grow are fertilization and water. Water, like wealth, causes the seed to grow. But the water is not the seed. Water is a multiplier, but remember that the love of money is the root of all evil. Fertilizer, made from manure, makes the seed grow healthier and more prosperous. When we are criticized, by the enemy and others, it is the “waste” that is good fertilizer for our seeds. (A few blog’s ago I shared with you the revelation that hurtful criticism can actually be good fertilizer, for the seeds of God’s Word to multiply.)
The revelation that the seed is the Word of God is vital for us, especially now that America is in an incredible Spiritual transition. If you look back in history, when the Renaissance was beginning to grow in Vienna, many nations were suffering with plagues and pestilence. Most notable was the Black Plague. It was killing so many people that the emperor of the holy Roman emperor bowed himself before the Lord in a simple humbling prophetic act before the nations of Europe. The plague stopped, and there is a huge statue depicting this famous act by the Holy emperor of Rome in Vienna today!
About five years ago on Periscope, I prayed around this statue, not realizing that the same event is occurring right now in our troubled world. Pestilence and plagues are raging, but at the same time, God’s Word is becoming active in believers’ lives. God is birthing new seeds of prosperity, innovation, and adventure in your life! Protect these precious seeds; some are given to you in His smallest whisper, though sometimes might be just one word.
This is the most precious time to be alive. Yes, judgment may be here, but so are extremely bountiful blessings. In the days of Moses, the plagues that came upon Egypt did not affect God’s people in the land of Goshen. I believe that the plagues that are on the earth will not affect God’s people. Wherever you are, may God put His protection around you and give you the precious seed of His Word.
Sent in love,
Pastor Richard Gazowsky
