Sow into Yourself!
“Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he comes and rain righteousness upon you” Hosea 10:12
Sowing into yourself is a bedrock of personal growth, a light that turns dreams into reality, a gas that fuels happy relationships with others, and a foundation that keeps you healthy. If you have not been sowing good seed into yourself, I encourage you to start now. In the next few months, you will see how life will be better than before. You will see how your health, relationships, business, ministry, and friendship improve. Do not ignore whom you are by being truthful about who you are. Remember, truth brings freedom, and freedom brings opportunity for growth.
Everything that gets into you is a seed that will grow and bring fruit for the world to see. The moments you set aside to seek God draws you more into the father’s heart; every moment you spend in fellowship with Him makes you know Him more. No one will see anything in this kind of season. Except it was written for us, no one would believe Jesus took time early in the day to seek God within the busy schedules of ministry. If He was doing this during his ministry period, He must have cultivated the habit from when He was not active in ministry.
Galatians 6:7 says, “Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.”
Actions in life are like seeds sown, and you need to sow into yourself too. The effort you put into every little detail of your life is a seed. That is why the scripture encourages us to sow into ourselves in righteousness so we can harvest from our lives in mercies. Sowing to ourselves in righteousness is when we decide to make righteousness investment, take righteousness decisions.
Remember, upon the altar of righteousness, we gain victory over everything we face. When we are in business, we keep it righteous, and then we are sure of a merciful harvest. When we are in school, we make an honest effort in learning which involves discipline, dedication, and diligence, and then we are sure that our result shall testify of the mercies of God. We must sow faithfulness and righteousness in a relationship to keep it strong. Therefore, take a righteous step today as you go out and expect a harvest of mercy. Galatians 6:9 says, “let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap if we do not give up.”
1. Today, I plant righteous seeds into my life and business, and I have a merciful harvest.
2. Psalm 107:37; As you sow in that career, business, ministry, marriage, family, and personal life, may your heavenly father bless you with fruitful yield in Jesus’ name. Amen.
