(02/18/2000) The trodden path
|hello prayer warriors
1. prayer note: the trodden path
We talked about prayer being a two-way communication
and hearing from God. Hearing from God begins with our
attitude or the condition of our hearts.
Jesus told us the parable of the sower about the
conditions of our heart: [Luke 8:4-15]
There were four types of soil that was mentioned in
A sower went out to sow: and as he sowed, some fell
i. [Luke 8:5] by the way side
ii. [Luke 8:6] upon a rock
iii. [Luke 8:7] among thorns
iv. [Luke 8:8] on good ground
What type of ground are we when we hear the Word? The
first type of soil:
[Luke 8:5] A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he
sowed, some fell by the way side; and it was trodden
down, and the fowls of the air devoured it.
What is those that fell by the way side? it was the
trodden path. Sometimes our lives are like the trodden
path. Trodden down by other people, by events and by
things that we seem is out of our control. We then
harbour all these hurts and unforgiveness and
bitterness and it is difficult for us to hear from God
because we have all these "noise" in our hearts that
we hear all the time. We find it difficult to forgive
others and sometimes to forgive God (as we blame Him
Forgiveness is not for others, it is for us.
34 And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the
tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto
35 So likewise shall my heavenly Father do also
unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one
his brother their trespasses.
When we do not forgive, we are tormented and we give
the devil room in our lives. When we forgive, we free
ourselves from this torment and the noise. It is
easier to hear from God when we free ourselves from
this noise. So, before we pray, let us learn to
forgive first. Try it and ask God to help us to hear
