Hosea 10:12 
Sow righteousness for yourselves, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up your unplowed ground; for it is time to seek the Lord, until he comes and showers his righteousness on you.

Sow righteousness,
reap love.
It’s time to till the ready earth,
it’s time to dig in with GOD,
Until he arrives
with righteousness ripe for harvest.
(The Message)

It’s always time to do the right thing. It is always time to know and experience God. 

The benefits of making the right choices and taking the right lead measures are not always immediately apparent. Time has a way of revealing the blessings of simple faith, loving obedience, and patient waiting. 

A coaching question Val Hastings of Coaching 4 Today’s Leaders likes is, “What do you want? What do you really, really want?” The best of our many desires are worth the wait. Many of those most deeply-held desires require more than one step. They often take a long time to come to pass. Like any project, more than a To-Do list is required. Big dreams and bold hopes take daily deposits of focused effort.

If you are not now harvesting hopes and dreams, keep at the steady work of tilling, planting, watering, weeding, and tending. Fruit takes time. It does not arrive or ripen by desire alone. 

Where are you in the process of becoming? 

What are you doing today to prepare you for the harvest someday?

What do you need to do now to draw one step closer to the kind of production honoring to God and blessing to others?

Dig in with God in full confidence of a bumper crop.

I will work and I will wait for the good gifts of God’s timing.

Our Father, what are my best lead measures today? What are my best next steps? What preparation is required from me now for what you want for me next? Amen.

Daily D – Psalm 101:2

Psalm 101:2 ”I will pay attention to the way of integrity.
When will you come to me?
I will live with a heart of integrity in my house.“

Daily D – Psalm 100:3

Psalm 100:3 Acknowledge that the Lord is God.
He made us, and we are his—
his people, the sheep of his pasture.

Daily D – 1 Kings 19:3-9

1 Kings 19:3-9 Then Elijah became afraid and immediately ran for his life. When he came to Beer-sheba that belonged to Judah, he left his servant there, but he went on a day’s journey into the wilderness. He sat down under a broom tree and prayed that he might die. He said, “I have had enough! Lord, take my life, for I’m no better than my ancestors.” Then he lay down and slept under the broom tree.

Suddenly, an angel touched him. The angel told him, “Get up and eat.” Then he looked, and there at his head was a loaf of bread baked over hot stones, and a jug of water. So he ate and drank and lay down again. Then the angel of the Lord returned for a second time and touched him. He said, “Get up and eat, or the journey will be too much for you.” So he got up, ate, and drank. Then on the strength from that food, he walked forty days and forty nights to Horeb, the mountain of God. He entered a cave there and spent the night. Suddenly, the word of the Lord came to him, and he said to him, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”

Daily D – 1 Kings 14:12-13

1 Kings 14:12, 13 “As for you, get up and go to your house. When your feet enter the city, the boy will die. All Israel will mourn for him and bury him. He alone out of Jeroboam’s house will be given a proper burial because out of the house of Jeroboam something favorable to the Lord God of Israel was found in him.“

Daily D – 1 Kings 12:6-7

1 Kings 12:6, 7 Then King Rehoboam consulted with the elders who had served his father Solomon when he was alive, asking, “How do you advise me to respond to this people?” They replied, “Today if you will be a servant to this people and serve them, and if you respond to them by speaking kind words to them, they will be your servants forever.”
