Spring is just around the corner! When I think of spring, I think of a new season with so much life. Birds singing, trees budding, flowers blooming, grass gets greener, so much color and more.
Spring means - move, jump or rapidly upward and forward. This is all in the natural.
Hosea 10:12 says, Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the Lord, till He come and rain righteousness upon you.
I believe this verse is talking to the Christian. We need to revive what has been dormant and begin to grow again.
Let’s break up the fallow ground speaking in farmers terms; fallow means plowed but left unseeded for a growing season. Indicating that it must have been tilled before. We are to break up the fallow ground. We are to prepare our (heart) for planting, only then we will be ready to receive the Devine precepts of God’s Word. Sow God’s Word (seeds) into your heart, so that it may take root and become grounded in the Word.
Friends, God has so many blessings in store for us! So many rewards for us doing (sowing) things that are pleasing to him. Sow righteous, mercy and being a blessing wherever. God will come and rain righteousness to you!
It’s time to move! It’s time to gets busy for Gods kingdom! You have gifts and talents that need to be sown! Ecclesiastes 3:1, There is a time and a season for everything! Your season of plowed left unseeded is being tilled for use.
