Hosea 10:12 Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the Lord, till he come and rain righteousness upon you KJV
“Fallow comes from the old English word for plowing, and refers to the practice of leaving fields unplowed in rotation––when a field lies fallow, the soil regains nutrients that are sucked up by over-planting.” Vocabulary.com
One temptation as I grow older is to abandon certain of the fields in my life. Those fields have so long been unproductive that it scarcely seems worth the effort to continue to hope for any sort of fruitful harvest. But God has an entirely different idea. God says that today is the exact perfect time to stop moping around the house, get the plow out of the barn and break up that fallow ground.
Do you have some fallow fields in your life? God has not created us to lie fallow forever. That fallow time is coming to an end and it is high time to cancel the pity party, hitch up the plow to the horse and get to work. There is still something that God has in mind, but we must do our part because there will still be the harvest that He has promised!
