The ones along the path are those who have heard; then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, so that they may not believe and be saved. Luke 8:12 ESV
The potency of the Word of God is never in doubt. God always wants His Word to be our experience. He said in Isaiah 55:11 - "so shall my Word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." Every of God's Word has the ability to produce what it talks about. But sometimes, we allow Satan to steal God's Word from our hearts, denying the Word the opportunity to produce what it talks about.
But how do we stop this negative trend from happening? Jesus said to us, "to you it has been given to [come progressively to] know (to recognize and understand more strongly and clearly) the mysteries and secrets of the kingdom of God, but for others they are in parables..." (Luke 8:10 AMP). This is the point where we need to arrive at - to recognize and fully understand God's Word more strongly and clearly. When we understand the Word more strongly and clearly, there is no way Satan can steal God's Word from us.
At this point, we have internalize the Word. It is now a part of us and we have meditated and gotten the revelation of the Word. This is the point where we "behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit" (2 Corinthians 3:18 AMP). Satan can't steal the Word from you at this point, rather, the Word would be producing all it talks about. Glory to God!
Keep winning daily.
Your Word is a shining light, that shines brighter into every dark alley of my life. It produces what it talks about. Satan can't get Your Word from my heart, because it is now a part of me. And I live in the reality of what Your Word says about me, in Jesus name. Amen.
