In My story of the Sower the hearts that lost the blessing, that held no good result, lost it because My servants had failed to prepare the ground.
They had failed to guard those they sought to influence, against the power of evil, and hardness of heart. They had failed to brace them to bear trouble and difficulty. They had failed to warn them against becoming too engrossed with having and getting.
The ground of the Sower had not been prepared. Much prayer must precede seed-sowing if the labor is not to be in vain.
So seek to prepare My way before Me. Then I, the Great Sower, will come. Harvest will indeed be great.
