Those are my prayers this week…that my life will be fertile soil and the crop He produces through my life will be 100, 60, or 30 times. (Although, I admit the prayers hinge toward the 100 times.)
A gleam in the farmer’s eye will tell you if his field has yielded much. There is always joy to be found when the seed has produced mightily. And, likewise, our Savior’s seed, when it yields favorably, brings joy to our Lord and majesty to His name, and lives are changed forever.
How does your field yield? Would you care to join me in that prayer, standing in the field of faithful soil? He can do much through you…to change hearts and reach others for His glory. Really! 🙂
But the one who received the seed that fell on good soil is the man who hears the word and understands it. He produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.
