In order for my life to be fruitful, I must break up the soil of my heart and get rid of anything that would get in the way of growth. It's not a popular word today but, sin needs to be broken up and removed from my heart and life in order to live a fruitful life. Hosea 10:12 says, "Sow for yourselves righteousness; reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground, for it is time to seek the LORD, till He comes and rains righteousness on you."
Breaking up fallow ground is hard work, especially when it's the rocky, fruitless soil of our own heart. But there is joy to be found in cultivating a bountiful heart of grace.
A Quiet Time Sabbath Blessing
In the Abundant Name of Jesus, Amen.
