Let the Fallowing Happen!

20140430_093934Last time I talked about God’s call in this season for some things to lay fallow. Since the creation of the world God established Sabbath rest, allowing for a natural fallowing for all of creation.

Dictionary.com gives two definitions for the word fallowing; one specifically focused on the land, the other is focused on humanity.

1.(of land) plowed and left unseeded for a season or more; uncultivated.
2. not in use; inactive: “My creative energies have lain fallow this year.”

In Leviticus 25, God speaks of the care the people of God are to take concerning the land. They are to give the land a Sabbath rest every seventh year allowing the land to lay fallow including the pruning of their vineyards. They can eat of the fields during the seventh year but they are to give the land a complete rest.

In Deuteronomy 5 we see God speaking to the Sabbath rest of man as we are commanded to keep the Sabbath holy. We are to5187keyhole allow things to lay fallow in our lives and do no work. Here in America we don’t understand this need for Sabbath rest and because we don’t understand the need for our Sabbath rest we don’t understand when God calls us to allow things in our life to go fallow.

Looking back at Leviticus 26 we see the blessings God desires to release when we keep the Sabbath rest in the land: from sending rain, a plentiful harvest, to peace in the land!

I truly believe when God calls something to go fallow in our lives, whether it is a friendship, a branch of ministry, or some other activity as we come into agreement with God and rest, we allow for the increase of God’s blessings to flow.

If God is calling you to let something to go fallow, press in and let the fallowing happen and rest in the blessings which follow!
