Dry, parched land begs for water. A picture of desolation.
It wasn’t too long ago that our land was dry and parched. Cracks were spreading out in every direction across the soil. We were praying for rain to pour out on the thirsty land.
Just like the land, there have been seasons of desolation, parched places in my life. Not physically, but spiritually.
“I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground. I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring and my blessing on your descendants.” ~ Isaiah 43:3
How does God see those areas in my life? He promises to pour out water in those dry places – what mercy!!
Then the rains came. The dry, parched land soaked in the quenching rain that eventually covered the land and the land began to flourish again.
And so I go to my desolate places and plant myself to seek Him. I plant myself next to the streams of Living Water and the falling rains and bubbling springs of pure Mercy saturate the places where He knows I need it most.
Remember God is more anxious to bestow His blessings on us than we are to receive them.
