Fight For Fruition: You've come to far to give up now!

Mar 4:8 "And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred."

I read an article recently of an organic corn farmer who's  field was located right in the middle of corn country (Nebraska).  This farmers crop (although organically grown)  is surrounded by other genetically modified corn growers.  Corn is an open pollinated crop and because of this, wind and insects can carry pollen from several feet to several miles.  This is extremely harmful for organic crop growers as it's quality is based upon how  GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms) free it is.    Because levels of GMO were found in the crop, it decreased it's value.  The higher the levels, the less he could sell his crop.  And for people who are looking for 100% organic products, this would not do.  So his crops were sold for far less or sat in storage.

"Why are you talking about corn" you might ask?  Well in this parable of the sower and the seed, Jesus gave a parable of a sower sowing seeds and four types of ground the seed sown:  1) The wayside  2) Stony  3) Among Thorns  4) Good Ground
In Mark 4:14-20  Jesus tells his disciples what the parable means:

Mar 4:14 The sower soweth the word.

Mar 4:15 And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.

Mar 4:16 And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness;

Mar 4:17 And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word's sake, immediately they are offended.

Mar 4:18 And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word,

Mar 4:19 And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.

Mar 4:20 And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive [it], and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some an hundred.

I don't know about you, but at some point in my life, I have been each of these types of ground.  As much as we want to see the word have fruition in our lives, we often will hear a word, get excited about it and determine "God will meet every one of my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus!"  And then comes the shut off notice.  You can't see where the money is coming from and begin to fret.  Or you heard a word that nobody could tell you  the Pastor wasn't talking directly to you.  You took it, quoted it for a while, but after the child got sick, they cut back your hours on the job you couldn't make that car payment so they re-possessed it.  And if you hear one more person say to you "Be not weary in well doing for in due season, you shall reap if you faint not" you might just slap them!  

Or you got that position you'd worked so hard for.  You'd believed God when that supervisor did everything in their power to keep you down.  You'd endured the underhanded things the co-workers were doing behind your back.  You didn't find out until you were promoted how much was really going on and how even in spite of it, the Lord had your back.  But now, you can't make it to church because you've got to be at a business meeting.  You stopped attending choir rehearsals because it conflicts with opportunities to network (after all it's not "what you know, but who you know").  Before you served him while quoting things like "I know my redeemer lives and He will vindicate me" but now, you resort to phrases like "The Lord knows my heart" or "You just don't understand".

But there are those times when you are right where you know you should be and everything seems to be lining up.  Almost effortlessly, doors are opening up before you even knock on them.  There is a favor in unlikely places being bestowed upon you that seems almost "Supernatural".  You are in your zone!

This the the ground we all strive to be.  And it is available to us by the grace of God.  It is a fight to get there and as we see in the parable, it's not your money, the job, or anything else the enemy is after.  It is "The Word"!  This is what we must fight to maintain.  The word is what produces increase in our lives.  We cannot let it be contaminated by outside influences and inner contractions.  

There are a lot of genetically modified methods that look like success, but just as the organic farmer must fight to keep his field free from contaminates, so must we.  For what makes our ground good, is that we can hear what God has said, receive it and fight to bring it to fruition.    You've come through too much, seen Him do too much for you to give up now.  You've felt like this before and remember how He came through for you?  You are too close and your season is here!  Don't give up when your deliverance is right on the other side of  this present situation.  Don't make a permanent decision based upon a temporary situation.
Mar 4:9 And he said unto them, "He that hath ears to hear, let him hear."
