Break it Up

16 10 2013



I said, ‘Plant the good seeds of righteousness, and you will harvest a crop of love. Plow up the hard ground of your hearts, for now is the time to seek the LORD, that he may come and shower righteousness upon you.’ Hosea 10:12

The Lord is so faithful to continue His work in us. I am so thankful for His love and mercy that accepts us just as we are. Wherever we may find ourselves, Jesus loves us enough to embrace us and continue us on our journey toward His purpose for our lives. Work on our hearts and minds concerning our thinking versus His, requires openness on our part. Some of us have allowed “hard” places to develop, so that it is difficult for the work to be done. Our passage today reflects on the need to break up the hard or fallow ground that may exist in our hearts. That unplowed rigid place is not usable in its current state. We are challenged to create cultivated areas of our hearts that God can use and plant seeds of love, which will bless us with a harvest beyond measure. It may take faith and courage to open your heart but whatever it takes, move forward today and break it up.
