“This is the meaning of the parable: The seed is the word of God.”

– Luke 8:11

Yesterday, I addressed each of us by saying that your biggest mountain is you. To overcome the mountain within you, continue to partner with God for greater life transformation and greater faith! As a pastor, let me tell you that God loves the mountain that is you. You are loved by God, God is for you, God is on your side, and know that not all mountains are bad. A mountain is not always a volcano, and not all mountains can destroy. But let me tell you that you are the biggest obstacle. Because we all face challenges, this isn’t something anyone wants to hear.

We will inevitably all face things that seem unfair at times. You will wonder why you had such bad luck. So many of these things happen, and you can’t change them. You can’t change the seasons, the soil, the weather, or the wind, but you can improve yourself, and that’s good news! Having seen it myself, I know you are capable of changing. Many of you have heard the principles I’ve shared and put them into practice, and your life has changed as a result. 

Friend, I wish to emphasize once again that Jesus teaches us how to change and remove the issues within us that hinder us from moving forward. According to Jesus, even a mustard seed of faith could cast this mountain into the sea. We hear “mountain,” and we hear “faith,” but here’s the word that nobody seems to catch: “seed.” Seed is the most important word. It is the seed of the Word of God that brings change to your life. In everything you do, ask God to show you scriptures and principles from the Bible that will move mountains, produce change, and facilitate your transformation.

Prayer


Father, I appreciate you being by my side and facilitating my transformation.

Reflection


Has someone treated you unfairly? Have you asked God for guidance in moving this mountain?

  1. In my time as a follower of Christ/God I have grown up loving the thought, teaching and word of God. The difficulties I have experienced have been some the world may have deemed harmful to someone’s ability to lead a good productive life. I have not come to realize this accusation by many people including the medical field.
    I am a Mom an ex-wife to the humans that severely beat and abused me. I’m a Sister and obviously a daughter; but here’s the best part. I am a daughter of the most high God of Israel. We have the illnesses of many by the plagues of Men (and Women) Think of a simple so called disability when a person intermingled the letters of a word. It is real! It’s man’s denial of God’s existence and your participation in (your=human) having things your way. The lack the world faces is due to there own demands that they require what they want in the body they choose and they are not going to change their ways or practices to enable a better world with the seed they have now. They’re greedy; they have marigold seed and they insist on tulip bulbs. The seeds we sow are many times plentiful. The problem is that they’re not getting sown because man has at times become a gardener that poisoned the yards.

  2. I was treated unfairly by the teachers and other classmates at the Convent of the Sacred Heart which is a college preparatory High School
    in Chicago Illinois.They didn’t understand that I have had Asperger Syndrome all throughout my whole life.They teased and taunted me to the point,Where I said, the hell with them.So I asked God for guidance on how to move this mountain.I discovered that I possessed the gift of music.Which enabled me to start working in my father’s reed business. It gave me so many opportunities and privileges.Such as attending numerous music conventions over the years, and joining the music ministry at my old parish church St Ignatius, And continuing
    at another church St Margaret Mary,Fast forward several years, Back at St Ignatius and joining the Parish Choir.Than moving down here.I became a parishioner at St Catherine of Siena and joining the choir.I also love to do karaoke.Blessings to all at Shepherd’s Grove.Peace
    good health and love to the Schuller family.Amen
