When the storms come, it is vital that we know where we are. Song of Solomon 4:12 says we are “a garden that is enclosed, a spring that is shut up, and a fountain that is sealed.” What a great place to be! The next verse says, “Thy plants are an orchard of pomegranates, with pleasant fruits” (Song of Solomon 4:13a).
This is the picture: Every seed in a pomegranate has the potential to reproduce another pomegranate. Each fruit is filled with many seeds, and if one has a hundred seeds, it could produce a hundred pomegranates. So, the believer who is hid with Christ in God will bring forth much fruit. Therefore, we must not sow the Word of God among thorns. “Break up your fallow ground, and sow not among thorns” (Jeremiah 4:3).
The Word of God says that if we sow in God’s righteousness, we shall reap in mercy. It is time to break up the fallow ground. Just keep doing it until the Lord rains His righteousness upon you (Hosea 10:12).
