Loving the soil you’re planted in

God Word : You can’t move forward if you hate where you are. Choose to see what God sees in your situation.

Main Story : Uzziah loved his city (loved the soil) even though it was a broken city. So he built into something great and God blessed him.

2 Chronicles 26:3a,5-10 NIV
[3a] Uzziah was sixteen years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem fifty-two years. [5] He sought God during the days of Zechariah, who instructed him in the fear of God. As long as he sought the Lord, God gave him success. [6] He went to war against the Philistines and broke down the walls of Gath, Jabneh and Ashdod. He then rebuilt towns near Ashdod and elsewhere among the Philistines. [7] God helped him against the Philistines and against the Arabs who lived in Gur Baal and against the Meunites. [8] The Ammonites brought tribute to Uzziah, and his fame spread as far as the border of Egypt, because he had become very powerful. [9] Uzziah built towers in Jerusalem at the Corner Gate, at the Valley Gate and at the angle of the wall, and he fortified them. [10] He also built towers in the wilderness and dug many cisterns, because he had much livestock in the foothills and in the plain. He had people working his fields and vineyards in the hills and in the fertile lands, *for he loved the soil.*

2 Chronicles 26:15 NLT
[15] And he built structures on the walls of Jerusalem, designed by experts to protect those who shot arrows and hurled large stones from the towers and the corners of the wall. His fame spread far and wide, for *the LORD gave him marvelous help, and he became very powerful*.
