If you’ve ever traveled through the desert, you’ll notice that it’s mile after mile of dry and barren landscape. Then suddenly, there’s a patch of trees, bushes
and flowering plants. Why? There’s some kind of water source nearby. With water, the desert blossoms and comes to life.
The same is true in our lives. Without God, we dry up and our lives become barren, just like a desert.
But when we come to God’s Son, Jesus Christ, He refreshes and renews us.
The Bible says in Nahum 1:7 “The LORD is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; he knows those who take refuge in him.”
Today, you can come to Him in prayer and find His life in the middle of your desert.
Have a great day and keep moving forward!
Suggested Bible Reading
Today as you pray …
Praise the Lord for His goodness and joy, even when our lives are difficult.
Pray that He will use your life to show forth His glory, no matter what your circumstances
may be today.
Ask for His strength and His courage to live for Him today.
Trust Him to avenge your enemies and to deliver you.
