The Hammer

(Digging, huffing, and puffing)

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: It’s not easy to break through hard ground.

“Hey! How’s it coming? Do you have a garden yet?”
“I can’t do this. The backyard is all clay and rocks!”

Nancy: It’s even more difficult to break through a hard heart.

“Well, are you coming to the Bible study?”
“Go without me. I’ve heard it all before.”

Nancy: But the Word of God has the power to soften the hardened soil of our hearts.

“Here, let me show you this one; you’ll appreciate it. It’s Jeremiah 23, and this is God talking.”
“'Is not my word . . . like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?' That’s cool.”

Nancy: The same Word that serves as a hammer to break us will then become a balm to heal our hearts. Have you let the Word of God soften your heart today?

Come and break me down,
Won’t you break me?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
