God plants a future


devotional post # 2092

Hosea 1:10-11 (2:1-2 in Hebrew)

Hos 1:10 But the count of the children of Israel will be like the sand beside the seashore, which cannot be measured or counted. And in the place where it was told them, “You are not my people,” it will be told them, “You are sons of the living God.”
Hos 1:11 And the sons of Judah and the sons of Israel will be gathered together, and they will appoint for themselves one head. And they will go up from the land, because great will be the day of Jezreel.

God plants a future

After telling the Israelites that their present status with God is bad, he now shares good news about their future. God is in the process of planting a new crop among them. In this future, they will be a numerous people again. This is God’s doing, because he is the planter. Jezreel (the name of Hosea’s first son) means “God plants.”

LORD, thank you for the promise of a glorious future because you are at work in our lives today.
