Righteous Rain

April 8, 2015

Hosea 10:12

12 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.

Hosea 12:6

So you, by the help of your God, return;
Observe mercy and justice,
And wait on your God continually.

Good Morning! These verses were pulled from my reading today. They seemed to flow together for me this morning. Although there is a lot of good stuff in each line, I wanted to start our focus on one main theme; Seeking God.

For it is time to seek the Lord, Till He comes…”

“…wait on your God continually.”

These are two themes that are consistent throughout the entire Bible.

We must constantly seek the Lord. We must learn to seek God through the bad times. We must learn to seek God in the good times. We must learn to seek God when we feel He is not listening.

Verse 12 gives us a few steps to follow through with this. As the book of James teaches, faith without works is dead.

It takes work to plant seeds of righteousness, it takes work to bear fruit worthy of repentance, but when we do the reaping is pleasant.

The only way to plant seeds of righteousness, and bear fruit of love and mercy is to have good soil. Just like a farmer trying to plant on a rock bed; not going to happen.

That is why verse 12 says to break up your fallow ground. In other words, work out the junk in your heart. Break it up, and get rid of it. Then and only then will your planting and harvesting bear fruits of love, mercy and righteousness.

 

Men,

“For it is time…to seek the Lord…till He comes…”, don’t give up, “…wait on your God CONTINUALLY”.

Let Him rain righteousness on you!
