“Sow for yourselves righteousness, reap the fruit of unfailing love and break up your unplowed ground, for it is time to seek the Lord.”
Have you ever been stuck in a rut? Ever felt down? Ever felt like why is this happening to me? Well maybe you need to break up your unplowed ground. I really love this verse. How many times have you been going through a storm and in order to make it out, you just have to suck it up and fight through.
Let me encourage you today to know that when you plow this ground you are not doing it alone.
Matthew 11:29 says, “Take My yoke upon you.” A yoke is a harness or instrument placed upon two oxen. It causes them to plow together. So, when one gets weak he can continue by being pulled by the other. When we feel weighed down, we need to TAKE HIS YOKE. He is attached to us and will carry the load. Of course, He ends up doing most of the carrying!
Today believe that you can handle anything. Mark 9:23 says, “All things are possible for him who believes.” Nothing is too difficult for God. Jeremiah 32:17 says “if nothing is too difficult for Him and He lives in you then nothing is too difficult for you.”
