The Problem Is Your Plow

The Problem Is Your Plow…

The ancient Hebrews rejoiced in the reaping of their harvests. But before they could reap, they had to sow, and before they could sow, they had to plough. It was the ploughing that readied the ground by turning the soil over and over again.

In your life, there are times when everything gets turned upside down and all seems mixed up. When your life is being turned upside down, getting mixed up, and turned over and over again, it’s a sure sign that your life is being ploughed.

That’s a good thing. You see, ploughing has a purpose. Ploughing loosens up the hard ground, moistens the dry ground, brings oxygen and nutrients into the barren ground, and prepares the soil to receive new life.

When you find your life in a ploughing time, God is breaking up the routine of your life, the hardness and dryness of your walk. He’s opening your life up to receive new life.

So rejoice, and receive the change God wants to bring into your life for blessed are the ploughed, for they shall also be sown. And blessed are the sown, for they shall also bear much fruit.

I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5

Whenever something comes your way today that seems to throw things off schedule or plan, see it as the ploughing of God and seek to see the good He wills to bring forth.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
