Sow for yourselves righteousness, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up your unplowed ground; for it is TIME TO SEEK THE LORD, until he comes and showers righteousness on you. Hosea 10:12
Is the hard ground of my heart plowed, broken up, and made ready for when He comes to move in my life? Will the soil be seeded with my obedience and devotion when He sends His showers?
I can easily spend my whole life satisfied with the hard ground of my selfish heart, seeking my own way. I can chip away hard soil to sow seeds of my own desire pursuing worldy gain, comfort, and ease. But if I do, at the end of my growing season I will be left with a bounty of thorns, thistles, and poisonous weeds.
The choices that I make today will determine the harvest found in my heart tomorrow. Today, I choose to sow righteousness. I choose to seek the Lord and His ways. I choose to allow God to break up this hard soil and make it ready for the rain.
