for it is the time to seek the Lord…

Sow for yourselves righteousness; reap steadfast love; break up your fallow ground, FOR IT IS THE TIME TO SEEK THE LORD, that he may come and rain righteousness upon you. Hosea 10:12 ESV

I like the words and message in For King and Country’s song, Burn the Ships:

Step into a new day. We can rise up from the dust and walk away. We can dance upon the heartache. So light a match, leave the past, burn the ships, and don’t you look back.

With all its joys and sorrows, ups and downs, this and that, 2019 is over. The past is now the past. Time to step into a new day. It is the time to seek the Lord. It’s redemption season (to borrow a line from another For King and Country song).

2020 is not my year, but His. I won’t focus on a word, but thirst after God and THE Word. Pressing, seeking, knocking. Redemption in all.

Who’s ready? Who’s hungry? Who’s anxious to live and work and serve to the glory of God? I am. I hope you are. And God is always ready for our YES to Him as He calls and guides us. Light a match, leave the past, burn the ships, and don’t look back. It is the time to seek the Lord.

Happy New Year, friends.

Read the full book of Hosea to discover God’s desire for His people to return to Him.
