The Word as a Seed

I was using an acorn for an object lesson the other day. Holding the acorn in my hand while standing under the tree that produced it, their seem to be no way to explain how that tree was at one time just an acorn.
I started thinking about the Word of God and how that it is like a seed. It appears to be a book with paper and ink, just like any other book. The differences are many but the one thing I saw was that like the acorn that produced that tree, so the Word of God can be productive in your life and mine.
Once the seed of God’s Word is placed in a heart of faith, the potential of that seed can come forth. God’s Word has the ability to produce for you and me. I think with a New Year right around the corner it would be a good time to start getting His Word in our hearts and mix faith with it and bring forth the potential of the Word.
If an acorn can produce a tree, how much more can the Word of God produce for you and me. Began to declare His Word over your life, friends , love ones and this nation. Mary said to the Angel of the Lord, ”Let it be to me according to your Word.”
