Now Is the Time

Farmers know they don’t break up their unplowed ground, plow the fields, or plant seeds just once. They must always be thinking about what they must do that day to lay the groundwork for a future harvest.

The Bible tells us that these principles also apply to our spiritual lives. Even as the farmer must break up the soil anew, so we must repeatedly break up the hard or stony conditions in our hearts and minds. We must plant seeds, not just once, but over and over again.

We specifically are instructed to sow righteousness and beware of spiritual “weeds” that can form in our hearts and minds. We must uproot any habits that distract us or keep us from receiving God’s blessings. Sin can gain a hold on us, bringing compromise to our lives and keeping us from experiencing a bountiful harvest.

We must constantly turn to God in humility, breaking up our fallow ground. This means repenting of known sins, becoming sensitive to His Spirit, seeking Him in prayer, living according to His Word, and speaking out when we see godlessness spread over our land.

Can you imagine what would happen if, by the millions, God’s people made a commitment to break up our “fallow ground”? If we repented and asked His forgiveness for our sins? If we prayed intensely? If we spoke up for the truth of God’s Word? If we sought the Lord until He rained righteousness on us? If we faithfully interceded for our nation and the world?

Now is the time to seek God. Don’t wait for someone else to take the initiative. Sow seeds of righteous living through what you do and say. Pray. God can heal your land!
