Like Jesus taught in the Parable of the Soils in the devotional Getting the Heart Ready, the word of God planted in a soul with integrity is like seed planted in fertile soil that flourishes into a banner crop. Bible study and prayer therefore should be a top priority.
In getting our heart ready to be receptive to God’s Word, find a place and time where there are no distractions. Have a desire to hear from God, escape the distractions of the world, be still, and just listen to God’s voice.
Pray for wisdom, believe in His goodness, have faith He will bring blessings, and worship through music. Here’s a video to help get your day started: Stop the World – Matthew West.
And the Words of the Lord are flawless, like silver purified in a crucible, like gold refined seven times. – Psalm 12:6
