GROWING OR CHOKING?

Faith grows like a tree
We strengthen our faith as we listen to the WORD
The devil can’t stop you from Believing
But, he can stop you from Listening
The devil can’t stop you from plucking the fruit from the tree in your compound
But, he can stop you from watering the seeds that were planted…

Whenever we hear the WORD OF GOD,
It’s like seeds that are planted in our heart.
It takes time to grow.
DON’T CHOKE IT!
Let it grow so much roots, till it becomes established in your heart…

Believing GOD is not a problem, but believing based on what level of faith
Is your faith strong enough?
Without faith, it is impossible to please GOD (Hebrews 11:6)
Without JESUS CHRIST, you can’t please GOD
There’s no access to GOD except through JESUS CHRIST
So, when the seeds of the sower, GOD, the vine is planted in you
Faith, by hearing and hearing by the WORD OF GOD
The faith that you use to please GOD, is the platform JESUS CHRIST provided…

When you listen more and more to the WORD- JESUS CHRIST,
You water the seeds that have been planted in your heart
More WORD, More Faith
Your Faith grows…
More colour on a surface makes the colour thicker and thicker….
Till you can’t ignore the reality of its existence…
More light from the WORD- less darkness

Consume the WORD OF GOD, and LIGHT will consume you
Meditate on the WORD OF GOD, and wrong thoughts will leave you
The scripture you do not meditate on can’t change you…

When you see a dim light, you may not be so sure it’s light really
But, the brighter it gets, the more certain you are..
RECEIVE THE WORD OF GOD INTO YOUR HEART AND REAP LIFE AND JOY IMMEASURABLE

Choking the WORD….
You retuned from church and entered into your room and met friends playing those songs
LEAVE!! So they wouldn’t choke the WORD you just received.

ARE YOU SOWING?
ARE YOU WATERING?
ARE YOU CHOKING?
ARE YOU PRACTICING THAT WHICH YOU’VE RECEIVED?

Ponder ….
