Time to Sow Righteousness


Time to Sow Righteousness

Hosea 10:12  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.

My passion is cultivating a deep relationship with God and helping others to do the same. I LOVE sharing with others insights that God has taught me and hearing what God has taught them... thus my blog, Stirring the Deep. My focus is on a relationship, not a religion. Life is in the relationship. I believe in a balance and unity of body, mind and spirit. I feel it's important to nurture all three for they all affect each other. I try to live in the present, where the Holy Spirit is. And I try to do all with the motive of love. I've come to believe life is a journey and not a destination. It isn't about perfection, is it about growth.

  1. Here you say “They are feeling a strong call to purge everything out of their life that’s not of God – It’s the FIRE- They are prepared by the Holy Spirit – That’s going to lead them where they wanna be, in abundant life, to the truest of LOVE & JOY & PEACE” Wonderful!
    Thank you Rachel for confirming, His wonderful doings, the marvellous WORK OF GOD. We walk in the LIGHT because He is LIGHT. We REIGN in life

  2. (NKJV) Luke 12:40 “Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”
    (CEV) Luke 12:40 So always be ready! You don’t know when the Son of Man will come.
    (Darby) Luke 12:40 And ye therefore, be *ye* ready, for in the hour in which ye do not think it, the Son of man comes.
    (TEV) Luke 12:40 “And you, too, must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you are not expecting him.”

    • Gal 2:20 NKJV – “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me;

      If it’s no longer I that lives, can a dead man be ready?
      Who needs to be ready then if I’m dead?

      If I’m dead and no longer live, it is CHRIST IN ME Who is ready and makes me ready.

      Unless of course there is still something I must do to help finish the FINISHED WORK OF CHRIST in me.

      When He said to them: “Be ye perfect as your Father in Heaven!” Could they? No! When He says “Be ye ready” Can we? No!
      Christ living in you can.


      • Hi .. we work out our salvation with fear and trembling, we are taught by the Holy Spirit, thus seeking to learn from Him, receiving His truths and obeying it — all done by the grace and power of God toward us preparing us to be His temple. We put off the old nature and embrace the new. We sow righteousness. There is much we do in His strength, yet His burden is light and His yoke is easy. It’s possible because of His power, forgiveness, mercy and grace toward us. It is a active relationship … not one where we sleep until He comes to fully redeem us.

        The death – is of our self-will .. of governing ourselves, of being directed by this world and the lust of the flesh and the pride of life. We are seeking to be governed by Him.

        And you are right the kingdom is from withing … it is who we are … when we truly seek truth and believe it is changes our thoughts and actions .. from ones of death to ones of life. If no change, no change in belief.

  3. Yes there is a great balance between these two thoughts. The finished work of Christ is not the finished work in ‘You’. It’s as if a man were steering a great Maritime ship. We have Christ for the compass, but we are steering the ship to Sea, or to a destination. Many dangers lie along the journey. We are not able to step back– and release the wheel. However the Great Shipmaster Christ will whisper in our ear, and also chart our course. And during the journey we will become better, and then better again, at mastering the elements of the Oceans of Love.
    (NASB) Luke 6:40 “A pupil is not above his teacher; but everyone, after he has been fully trained, will be like his teacher.”

  4. Hi Rachel, A very good description of “seal of God” vs mark of beast!
