When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.
The power of the word of God is in its understanding; the word is powerful in your life to the extent to which you understand it.
Paul in Ephesians 1:17-21 prayed like this: “that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: and hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him that filleth all in all.”
Did you know that the same power that raised Jesus from the dead is the power at work in you? There should be no dead situations in your life because of this power. But if there is, could it be that you are yet to understand the word of God with respect to those situations?
Go into today asking the Holy Spirit who is the author of the word to help your understanding so that you would begin to enjoy the riches of the glory of His inheritance for you.
