Weed, Heal, and Restore
One day in a conversation with my mom, she mentioned that she had been up early that morning pulling weeds. She noticed it had rained the night before and the ground was soft. She said it is always easier to pull up weeds that way. Dry ground makes it difficult—you cannot get at the root, and she said, “I hate to get the weeds but not the roots. They’ll just regrow.” Instantly, this struck me.
Have we been pulling at weeds sandwiched in dry ground? Have we been pulling at the same old sinful intrusions just to find that the same weeds have regrown in the same places? Is it because we have only pulled at the surface of issues and not gotten to the roots?
What is God doing to soften your heart—what tears, what storm, what flood? Let Him do the work. Ezekiel 36:25 says, “Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols.” And in verse 26, He promises to give a new heart, a heart of flesh.
Today, let God weed, heal, and restore.
