Fallow and empty ground

Posted on May 5, 2015 at 8:07 PM

I have been looking at the rapid growth of my grass. A little rain, a little sunshine and O, my gosh! Very quietly it takes it all in and begins to grow and then, quite suddenly, it is long, lush and green. And yet, in certain areas I notice sparseness, areas where it is barren and needs reseeding. As I examine the ground it seems hard and tough, empty. This makes me wonder how the Lord God sees some of us. Some of us seem to be lush and growing, green and full of life in some areas and yet so barren and empty in other areas. Do you ever feel like that? Do you ever see yourself in that manner?  I am sure that our God does and I am sure that He desires we do something about it.
So, out comes the rake to turn over the ground, to break up all the hard and tough areas to prepare for the seed. Here comes a handful of seed to lavishly throw out to cover over the sparse areas of earth, and then comes the water - the rain and the sunshine - to perpetuate the growth.
How faithful our God is to care and to observe what the needed areas of our life are for Him to re-seed. How He comes, through others and through His Word, to turn up our hard and fallow earth, the ground of our heart and spirit, to give us the seed we need! Just the right seed. And, most of the time we mutter and complain about it, not liking the process at all!  And then, after the hard work and the work of patience in our life, the seed takes root and quietly grows until suddenly we see the lushness of our growth and our empty and bare places are no more. It is a work well done and well worth the effort.
Will you let the Lord turn up the hard, empty, fallow ground of your heart? Will you allow Him to reseed with the fertilizer of His mighty Word? Will you allow Him to use the Son and the rain of the Holy Spirit to cause you to root and grow and become lush n Him? I so hope so! the 'suddenly' you too will be lush and green in Him!
- Pastor Sandi

Jeremiah 4:3  "For thus saith the Lord to the men of Judah and Jerusalem (Believers) 'Break up your fallow ground and sow not among thorns."
Hosea 10:12  "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."
