DAGGER THRUSTS


DAGGER THRUSTS

Any experienced gardener knows a variety of ways to prepare the earth and plant a seed.
So does God.
 Often His spade is quick, smooth, and not too disruptive. On other rarer occasions, He arrives with a shovel and hoe, ready to greatly trouble the tight soil of the soul. Like dagger thrusts His work is done, the earth turned and sifted, in preparation for a single, precious, deep-seated seed.

“Sow for yourselves righteousness; reap in mercy;
Break up your fallow ground, for it is time to seek the Lord,
till He comes and rains righteousness on you.”
Hosea 10:12
