A Bible Reading For Today | Matthew 13:18-23

Therefore hear the parable of the sower: When anyone hears the word of the kingdom, and does not understand it, then the wicked one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is he who received seed by the wayside. 

But he who received the seed on stony places, this is he who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy; yet he has no root in himself, but endures only for a while. For when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he stumbles. 

Now he who received seed among the thorns is he who hears the word, and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful.

But he who received seed on the good ground is he who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and produces: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

                                                                                           - Matthew 13:18-23

Everlasting Word

The Lord, He alone is God. In Isaiah 40, God speaks comfort to His people and declares His sovereign majesty. Herein, God illustrates the everlasting nature of His Word. "The grass withers, the flower fades, but the Word of our God stands forever." (Isaiah 40:8)



A Prayer:

Holy, gracious Father, You have created all things and without You, we can do nothing. There is none to be compared with You. You alone deserve our worship. Incline our hearts to heed your words and walk in Your ways. Thank You for Your precious promises; Your comforts delight the soul. In Your holy name, we pray. Amen.

The Fruit of the Spirit


In the Christian life, as we walk in the Spirit, the sinful nature is put to death and the fruit of the Spirit is produced in our lives. It is the work of the Holy Spirit, who cultivates our hearts and minds and transforms us into the image of Christ. May the cry of our hearts be: "Give me a heart like Yours, Lord God!" Amen.

An Evening Meditation: God's Favor


"We have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us, the deeds You did in their days, in days of old: You drove out the nations with Your hand, but them you planted; You afflicted the peoples, and cast them out. For they did not gain possession of the land by their own sword, nor did their own arm save them; but it was Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your countenance, because You favored them." (Psalm 44:1-3)

Thank you Lord God for Your might and Your power on behalf of Your people. Your people are blessed and highly favored because You have deemed it so. Thank You for Your grace and mercy in every area of our lives. Thank You for saving our souls. Amen.

Our True Treasure of Joy and Rejoicing


Long-suffering God is righteous and just in all that He does. In Jeremiah Chapter 15, God declared a severe punishment on Judah. So much so, that He said, "Even if Moses and Samuel stood before Me, My mind would not  be favorable toward this people. Cast them out of My sight, and let them go forth." (verse 1)

The prophet Jeremiah, a man called by God to speak His words to a rebellious people, found himself pleading with God for mercy. He lamented his own birth and desired deliverance from his persecutors.

He put God in remembrance of his faithfulness to the call of God upon His life. He said, "O Lord, You know; remember me and visit me, and take vengeance for me on my persecutors. In Your enduring patience, do not take me away. Know that for Your sake I have suffered rebuke. Your words were found, and I ate them, and Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart; for I am called by Your name, O Lord God of hosts." (verses 15 & 16)

The prophet also complained in His affliction: "For You have filled me with indignation. Why is my pain perpetual and my wound incurable, which refuses to be healed? Will You surely be to me like an unreliable stream, as waters that fail?"(verse 18)

In verses 19-20, God set forth conditions for Jeremiah to continue in right standing before Him, with promises of His divine presence and protection. He reinforced to the prophet his calling with words He spoke concerning his purpose and mission in life. (See also Chapter 1.)

Our faithful Savior who called us, has promised never to leave us nor forsake us. He is with us in our trials and tribulations, in our joys and in our sorrows.

The Lord God of hosts is our true treasure of joy and rejoicing! Feast on His word; trust and obey. Amen.

Inspirational Thoughts: A Well-Watered Garden


A Bible Reading:


"Hear the word of the Lord, O nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, 'He who scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him as a shepherd does his flock.' For the Lord has redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of one stronger than he. Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, streaming to the goodness of the Lord—for wheat and new wine and oil, for the young of the flock and the herd; their souls shall be like a well-watered garden, and they shall sorrow no more at all. Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, and the young men and the old, together; for I will turn their mourning to joy, will comfort them, and make them rejoice rather than sorrow. I will satiate the soul of the priests with abundance, and My people shall be satisfied with My goodness, says the Lord." (Jeremiah 31:10-14)

Bless God, who has redeemed us out of every nation and liberated us from the power of darkness, and translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son: In whom we have redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins. Amen.
