In my devotions a few days ago, I found the following verse.
Clear the neglected weedy area. Tolerate no neglected and idle acreage in your harvest fields. Let every area of your life become productive. This is now the holy season of plowing, planting, cultivation, working of the hard and darkly ruddy earth of our nature. . .righteous working softens the seed bed and allows the life giving Word and water to soak deeply into our souls. . .
Now! It is time to pursue ~ the Hebrew emphasizes ~ THE LORD!!! This work and this preparation, is for the purpose of finding an intimate relationship with God in your harvest, that His righteousness will then arrive. . .abide. . .enter with you as a flowing of water. . .directed as an arrow shot from his bow. . .instructing you. . . teaching you. . .revealing His glory and honor to you . . .covering you with His true righteousness. . .
What beauty. . .what power in this verse. I hunger for you Jesus. I tolerate no barrier to You in my life. . .I thirst for you my God. . .I cannot get enough of You. . .
Thank you my God. . .
Thank you my Lord. . .
