“Sow for yourselves righteousness; reap steadfast love; break up your fallow ground, for IT IS THE TIME TO SEEK THE LORD, that He may come and rain righteousness upon you.” Hosea 10:12
The start of a new month always entail a new beginning.
It seems only yesterday when we bid 2018 goodbye, and welcomed 2019, unbeknownst of what lies ahead. And yet, just like that, in a snap of a finger, the first quarter of the year (January – March) already passed. I don’t know if it’s just me or what, but days and months seem to pass quicker than before. Or maybe it’s because our minds are filled with distractions. There are a lot of things in this present generation that constantly distract us, as if swerving our focus from what’s really important.
And so, days and months just pass us by, unsure if they were used for their intended purpose.
Now, a new month starts. It has been noted that more than likely, the month of April is the start of the Spring season. A season perfectly carried out by our Creator, as His timing for everything is perfectly orchestrated. It is the season where buds and blossoms are now opening, and we sense growth in nature. If the nature knows its season of blossoming and growing, and faithfully follows the set schedule, may we, as children of God, no longer postpone our growth and budding.
Evaluate and ask yourself, “What season am I currently in?”
It is time to break our icy hearts, to let the Love of JESUS warm up and melt our frozen state. It is time to seek the Lord, and let our hearts grow in the knowledge of Him.
Did you previously seek Him but get tired in the long run? Were you left as a fallow ground, scorched from your evil desires and pursuits? Refrain from rejecting His outpouring love, and quench your thirst, for He will rain His righteousness upon us.
He longs to make our hearts as cultivated land. A land intended to bear the seed of His Words, which will bloom in its due season. As we sow in His righteousness, we are secured that we will reap His Steadfast Love.
It’s time to seek the Lord. We already wasted countless years pursuing our worthless desires, let us not waste our remaining time. It is not yet too late to change our course.
Seek His Face, while there’s still time.
