Making Ready

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


I love this verse and I do feel like it is time to seek the Lord. I need to make sure my heart is plowed and made ready for when He wants to move in my life. Why is it I always seek Him harder when I long for something or have a trial in my life? Perhaps this is why He does not shield us from all troubles in this world...we might not seek Him if He did. God's purpose is for us (and for everything) to glorify Him. I am sure that God is more concerned about the process of healing and the process of victory than the actual outcome-- even though He loves to rejoice in our living out His victory.

I plan on living out His victory.
Christ has overcome!

These are verses that we are plowing our fields with:

Mark 9:23 "What do you mean, 'If I can'?" Jesus asked. "Anything is possible if a person believes."
Romans 4:17 That is what the Scriptures mean when God told him, "I have made you father of many nations." This happened because Abraham believed in the God who brings the dead back to life and who brings into existence what didn't exist before.
Galatians 3:29 And now that you belong to Christ, you are the true children of Abraham. You are his heirs, and now all the promises God gave to him belong to you.
Psalms 128:3-4 Your wife will be like a fruitful vine, flourishing within your home. And look at all those children! There they sit around your table as vigorous and healthy as young olive shoots. That is the Lord's reward for those who fear him.
