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.
If you are looking for breakthrough in your life or your situation, there are first some things that need to break up concerning you personally:
First, we have to consider the fallow ground. What does that mean? Unplowed, not in use, unseeded.
You will need to have a break up with some things, some thought processes, some relationships, some addictions, some sin, some bondages, some lies, some attitudes…
A break up.
In Micah, it tells what happens if you have a “break-up” with some things that are not pleasing to the Lord. It speaks that God’s rain will begin to fall on your life.
Your enemy has tried to hold you in, to make you think that you’ll never get rid of the dead things in your life, that there will always be chaos and mess, and that nothing can ever live on that barren ground.
All things dead have to be removed, and this starts with brokenness.
Break up the fallow ground—ground that was once fruitful—ground that once produced the fruit of the Spirit:
Love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.
The areas that are no longer fruitful have to be broken up.
God needs it to be broken up so that the seed of His Word will fall and begin to produce love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control…
And forgiveness and healing…
Brokenness on earth brings openness in Heaven.
If you break up the hard ground, God said the rain will fall.
The rain in Heaven is attracted to the brokenness on earth.
But there has to be a breaking up that happens inside of us.
Through repentance, through surrender, through fasting, through prayer, through praise…
We MUST break up the fallow ground.
Then, the desolate places can become like the Garden of Eden.
“‘Message of God, the Master: On the day I scrub you clean from all your filthy living, I’ll also make your cities livable. The ruins will be rebuilt. The neglected land will be worked again, no longer overgrown with weeds and thistles, worthless in the eyes of passersby. People will exclaim, “Why, this weed patch has been turned into a Garden of Eden! And the ruined cities, smashed into oblivion, are now thriving!” The nations around you that are still in existence will realize that I, God, rebuild ruins and replant empty waste places. I, God, said so, and I’ll do it.”
