Heart Condition

In God’s eyes, there are no ‘unlovable’ people.  He loves all people unconditionally, completely, and unfailingly.  And He loves consistently which means His love is flowing to each person continuously.  Therefore, the onus is on us to do something with that constant stream of love that comes our way.

I was reading in the Book of Hosea this week and came across Hosea 10:12 which says

"Plant the good seeds of righteousness, and you will harvest a crop of love. Plow up the hard ground of your hearts, for now is the time to seek the Lord, that he may come and shower righteousness upon you."

I considered how this passage correlates to my two previous blogs. In order for the love of God to penetrate our hearts, we need to cultivate the areas that align with what is righteous or good in our lives ... keep those areas 'seeded and watered'.

On the other side, we need to "plow up" the hardened areas; those areas where we tend not to do that which is righteous or good. These are places where His love is not penetrating and not flourishing because we are not allowing it in.

We all have habits, thoughts or practices that we know do not align with what is known to be good or acceptable.  We all have the “I wish I wouldn’t do that, say that, think that” moments.  These come from learned behavior growing up or from peer influence.  Either way, our hearts get hardened from these habits and form a resistance to what is good and wholesome.

A single commitment to removing these habits is enough to put a crack in that hardened area and let the love of God start seeding and watering.
