STREAMS IN THE DESERT
He found him in a desert land and in the wasteland, a howling wilderness. He encircled him, He instructed him, He kept him as the apple of His eye.
Earlier , a television crew from Animal Planet was filming a scene on a deserted island in the South Pacific. Suddenly the crew spotted a man yelling and waving his arms. He was a genuine castaway, a stranded fisherman, suffering dehydration and sunstroke. The man had given up hope, said his prayers, and was prepared to die. The crew rescued him and made a television program about the adventure.
None of us like to be cast into a desert place in life, but the Lord knows how to rescue us. He finds us where we are. He encircles us. He instructs us, and He keeps us as the apple of His eye.
If you're in a desert place, don't give up your hope. Desert places can become places of deliverance, and God can even turn spiritual deserts into times of refreshment. The desert shall rejoice and blossom for waters shall burst forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert. Jesus often meets us in the desert places of life.
If He be he Source of our mercies they can never fail us. No heat, no drought can parch that river, the streams whereof make glad the city of God.
