Let me share a secret with you.

Let me share a secret with you.

In Mark 4:9-12 Jesus said, “The SECRET of the kingdom of God has been given to you ...

This is a teaching on the Parable of the Sower from Mark chapter 4. Jesus explains how doubt chokes off God's supply.

There are three traps that believers get stuck in, all due to doubt.

Trap Number 1

A person hears the good news of the Word. Like when I read John 10:10 where Jesus says He came that we would have abundant life. But as soon as they hear it, they doubt it, and satan robs them.

vs 14-15 - The farmer sows the word. Some people are like seed along the path, where the word is sown. As soon as they hear it, Satan comes and takes away the word that was sown in them.

Trap Number 2

This person hears the Word and they receive it with Joy. They hear one of the 6000 plus promises in the Word of God and they believe. They are full of joy. But then because of their faith, satan attacks them with some kind of bad circumstance, and they get stuck in doubt.

vs 16-17 - Others, like seed sown on rocky places, hear the word and at once receive it with joy. But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away.

Trap Number 3

This person hears the word, believes it, BUT they are obsessed with getting. They to get into doubt. They suffer from FOMO (fear of missing out). They fall into doubt when they are waiting on God. They too, get stuck in doubt. People in doubt always give themselves away, they speak their future. They're hung by their tongue. When I hear them speak, I think, "if you say so".

vs 18-19 - Still others, like seed sown among thorns, hear the word; but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful.

>> This Will Free You

Hear the Word. Accept it as fact. Just believe! Then, wait for it ....... a little longer ....... you'll get the prize. God rewards faith.

vs 20 - Others, like seed sown on good soil, hear the word, accept it, and produce a crop—some thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times what was sown.”

God isn't moved into action by your need. If that were so there would be no lack in this world. Faith is simply believing and receiving God's promises.
