Now the parable means this: The seed is the word of God.  Those along the path are those who hear. Then comes the devil, who takes away the word from their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.
Luke 8:11-12 MEV 

The stronger hold we have on the Word of God, the less we will be shaken when the enemy comes against us. We all know that Peter began to sink in the very presence of the Almighty, getting his eyes off Jesus for only seconds is all it took to let fear and doubt creep in.  

The enemy we will always try to get us to look at circumstances (what we see) instead of the Word. His only hope to defeat us is to get us to turn it loose. He is powerless against a child of God who refuses to be moved.  

Hang tight to God's word alone and his grace and mercy will bring you up and out of any trap set against you.
