Tilling and Planting
As the season of Pesach(Passover) approaches, we meditate on cleansing from sin, removing leaven (pride) from our spiritual and physical houses. We ask YHWH יהוה (God) to cleanse us from our sin. In Isaiah 28, after YHWH יהוה(God) warned of the judgment He had decided to bring to pass on the earth, he says this:
23 Give ye ear, and hear my voice; hearken, and hear my speech.
24 Doth the plowman plow all day to sow? doth he open and break the clods of his ground?
25 When he hath made plain the face thereof, doth he not cast abroad the fitches, and scatter the cummin, and cast in the principal wheat and the appointed barley and the rie in their place?
26 For his el-o-heem' (God) doth instruct him to discretion, [and] doth teach him.
27 For the fitches are not threshed with a threshing instrument, neither is a cart wheel turned about upon the cummin; but the fitches are beaten out with a staff, and the cummin with a rod.
28 Bread [corn] is bruised; because he will not ever be threshing it, nor break [it with] the wheel of his cart, nor bruise it [with] his horsemen.
29 This also cometh forth from YHVH (the LORD) of hosts, [which] is wonderful in counsel, [and] excellent in working. Isaiah 28:23-29 KJV
Last year, when I had called my uncle on the phone and confessed some things to him, he told me that YHWH (God) was tilling my heart. Thus, when YHWH (God) works with our conscience, and the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) moves us to repent of our sins and apologize to others, He is doing a work in us, plowing our hearts for the crop He will plant.
