I have noticed something in the years I have been walking with God: we all have a particular ‘word’ sown in us. For some it is healing, for some it is financial prosperity, for some it is deliverance, for some it is restoration, we all have a word sown in us.
What I am talking about is that aspect of God that lit you up when you were first born again. There may even be more than one – it’s those things you discovered when you began walking with God.
For me, there were two major things; although I have seen God do many things in my life for the past 25 years, two things were revelation when I first met God. The first for me was worship – in the very beginning I realized and was fully aware that I was born to worship God. It came easy and effortless, it breathed life into me like I have never know. The second thing was I realized I could have financial blessings. Being raised with three sisters by a single Mom, financial security wasn’t something I had experienced.
Recently, I was talking with a friend, she was telling me how the enemy had attacked a particular area of her life. I thought about what the word of God says about her particular attack; this can be found in Mark 4. In verse 15 the Bible says when a particular word is sown into your heart, Satan comes to steal that word. Now, first of all, the word is sown in your heart. It is not just a thought or a hope, no! It is something you lay hold of and take into your heart. It is sown in the good ground of your heart. It is a powerful seed and Satan knows it and he does everything in his power to steal it from you.
You see my friend had the word ‘freedom’ sown into her heart many years ago and had walked in freedom for many years, yet recently the enemy came to steal that word and make her feel as if she were in bondage once again.
Today I wondered; what is the word that God has sown into the good ground of your heart? Which word has the enemy come to steal in you? It may be a seed of a godly spouse. It may be a seed of a business flourishing. It may be financial independence. It may be healing. This one thing I know for certain, GOD HAS SOWN A WORD, a particular word in you. And when God sowed it in you, it became yours.
Satan only bothers people who are doing something for God. He only attacks those who are making an impact and he only steals, or attempts to steal what is of value. If he is attempting to steal your word it is for one reason; he knows it is of great value and he has to do anything he can to stop it from coming to full fruition.
The good news is that he doesn’t have the power to stop that word in you. Only you have that power and if you refuse to let go of that word, it will remain in your heart and keep growing. It will grow until it has come to fruition and you see it manifest.
When I went through attack after attack and loss after loss, I realized the enemy was attempting to steal worship from me. Worship is my power tool. It is the place from where everything flows for me.
Everything wonderful that has ever happened in my life has come from intimate times of worshipping God. That was the thing the enemy wanted to stop in me. And I will admit, it was very difficult for me to worship freely during those times – but worship I did. I worshipped by faith when I had to, but I worshipped. Now, worship is free flowing again. The enemy can’t steal your word, if you refuse to allow him to.
There is something that God has put in your heart. You feel you have fought for it for years and years and still haven’t seen it come to pass. Don’t give up on that word, don’t stop believing, if the enemy is attempting to steal it, it can only be because he sees what you will do with that word, he sees the value in it. Hold tight to that word.
It’s YOURS. It is your word, sown in the good ground of your heart. It is safe, keep believing that it is yours and you will see it come to pass.
You know…God will sow many more words in your heart. The moment they are sown, they are yours, it’s time we learn to hold fast to those words, refuse to let them go and see them come to pass…don’t you agree? This is our year to see it all. Hold fast!
