We don’t work the word, the word works in us
Psalm 1 and Matthew 13 is key to seeing how the word of God works to bring forth its fruit in us ,in its season.
Many approach Gods word like an instruction manual on how to live the Christian life for dummies!
They read it and then set out trying their best with all their might to then do it, but the more they try the more miserable they seem to fail.
The problem is not with the word , but with the approach !
The word was never meant to be just another how to instruction or rule book on how to do or to live the Christian life.
If the focus is on you and what you must do then your focus is in the wrong place !
We are not transformed by us trying to do or by beholding us ! but by beholding Christ and receiving and believing what Christ has already done for us and now what He is doing in ys and through us.
We really don’t live the Christian life,
The life of Christ now lives in us. Gal 2:20
Remember its God who is now at work in you both to will and to do His good pleasure.
Neither do we produce fruit. We bear fruit .
Remember its God who gives the increase !
1 Corinthians 3:6
The Word of God is not an instruction manual for Christian living , but its more like a seed sewn and received that then works in us to bring forth its fruit in its season .
In other words we don’t work the word, but the word works in us.
Gods word is like a seed and within the seed is everything needed to powerfully work in us to bring forth the God kind of fruit in and through our lives.
The Word is the seed and within the seed is the very DNA 🧬 of God ..
DNA standing for Gods ..

The only thing the seed needs is some good soil to grow. We are called to receive the seed with understanding .
As for the seed that fell upon good, rich soil, it represents the hearts of people who hear and fully embrace the message of heaven's kingdom realm. Their lives bear good fruit-some yield a harvest of thirty, sixty, even one hundred times as much as was sown." Matthew 13: 23 TPT
Remember the Gospel message is the power of God for everyone who will believe it!
The Pharisees asked Jesus what they must do to work the works of God ? and Jesus said this is the work of God that you believe in the one that the Father sent .
Who did the Father send ? The Father sent the Word .. The word became flesh and the word will work in our flesh as we receive the word of truth contained in the gospel ..
For if by the one man's offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.) Romans 5:17
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: John 1:12
