The kingdom of God is as if someone would scatter seed on the ground, and would sleep and rise night and day, and the seed would sprout and grow, he does not know how. The earth produces of itself, first the stalk, then the head, then the full grain in the head. But when the grain is ripe, at once he goes in with his sickle, because the harvest has come.
The seed in this parable represents the good news of Jesus Christ, the soil represents the heart. It means that we have to spread the Gospel of Jesus. Scatter does not mean what it seems to mean. Scatter in this case represents the fact that we don’t know who will listen to the Gospel because we do not know what is in everyone’s heart.
The next step of the parable is the Harvest, which is God’s doing. If we get in his way, he might ruin part of his plan for us. It might be hard to know if we are in the way or not, but it still is best if at least try.
The last step is to “let go”. It means to “let go” of something we want to fix, but that might be in the way. If we want to fix a broken past, it may not happen. We just need to let go of the bad things that happened in the past even though we will always remember. It means to not let get in the way of your life.
We need to be patient for God when we are going through a rough time. We want to skip the growing and struggling in order to get immediate, but that is not the best way to handle those kind of situations. We must never give up and trust in the Lord no matter what. We are supposed to grow and strengthen during our sufferings even though it hurts, but he specifically wants things to happen in a certain order. Something must happen before something else does. That means it could take time in order to get out of a tough situation. We always want to be in control of our life, but we cannot control the Kingdom of God. Part of what happens to us is dealing with the Kingdom of God. If we get in the way of God’s doing, it means we are not being obedient to him.
