“I will make rivers flow on barren heights, and springs within the valleys. I will turn the desert into pools of water, and the parched ground into springs.”
– Isaiah 41:18
God is going to bring springs and rivers to the deserts of your life. Let’s believe this today. I want you to personally hear this passage of scripture spoken by our loving Father in Isaiah 43:18-19: “Forget the former things. Don’t dwell on the past.” We are not to dwell on the things lost or the past in a way that cripples our life. God continues, “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?” God is stirring our hope. Even in the desert of your life, there’s a spring of water coming up.
At times the picture of our lives appears good on the outside, but on the inside, you feel barren like a desert. Maybe you have a decent job, but it’s not meaningful. Perhaps you have an okay marriage, but it’s not the marriage you dreamed of. Maybe your kids are doing alright, but they’re not doing great. Perhaps your walk with God is so-so; you are labeled a Christian but don’t really feel God. That’s not the kind of life that God has for you. Can you imagine what it’s going to be like when God brings you new life, springs, and rivers?
Friend, when you’re in the desert of your life, and believe me, all of us go through it, there’s this spring of water that’s about to come. Can we get excited and hopeful that God is about to bring springs of life into our lives? Let’s believe that.
Father, thank you for bringing springs and rivers to the deserts of my life.
Do you have negative areas of the past you still dwell on that you can release? Ask God to heal these areas and replace them with His springs and rivers.
