“The Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and strengthen your bones: You shall be like a well watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail. Those from among you shall build the old waste places; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach, The Restorer of the Streets to dwell in.”
This scripture has been my encouragement for many years. You might say it is my life verse given to my spirit by the Spirit of the Lord in His word. My promise, electrified, jolted into my being with a force that took my breath.
It was given in a very dark period in our life. That time in each of our lives where God is doing the refining, purging and shaking everything we are holding on to in this world.
Can you hear it? Listen.. The. Lord. will. guide. you. continually. Again! The Lord. WILL guide you. Continually. Again! The Lord will GUIDE you continually.
Have you gotten the picture?
God’s hand never leaves the masterpiece. He stands over the refining fire to bring out His glory in us.
And satisfy your soul in drought…. That dry, hard, cracked, suffering part of us that drains our spirit and leaves us weak and feeling unwanted and useless. The Lord our God will satisfy your soul in drought.
We need His refreshing living water. He will send the rain, he will bring refreshing to our drought. We just have to cry out to him. Trust him and wait patiently for him.
Water… Living water… Like a spring whose waters do not fail.
