“The Lord will regularly information you, and fulfill your soul in scorched and dry locations… you may be like a watered backyard, and like a spring of water whose waters don’t fail.” Isaiah 55:11
The spindly, pale inexperienced plant drooped extra every day because it struggled to outlive within the shadow of stronger, taller greenery in the identical massive pot. Lastly, assuming that I couldn’t inflict extra harm than what was obvious, I gently tugged it out of its spot, disregarded the dry roots, re-potted it in an previous chipped espresso mug and positioned it on a windowsill to catch morning mild.
Did the drooping plant appear straighter in only a few days? Had been pale leaves slowly turning a wealthy, deep inexperienced? Was it simply my creativeness that this small reducing reached towards the solar after I turned the pot?
Identical to the weak plant, we too battle after we dwell within the shadows. Typically we wither when within the presence of robust, multi-talented, energetic Christians, contemplating ourselves so little and so much less compared. Typically unwise selections, unconfessed sin, poor selections, or relationships that harm our view of God and of ourselves block out the solar—the Son. Now we have forgotten that He’s the Gentle that offers life. He’s the Dwelling Water that soaks into drought-stricken souls.
Simply as I recurrently flip that previous espresso mug with its small sprout towards the solar, so we should recurrently and deliberately flip to the Son. Indulge in his love, drink of his love, settle for his love. Feed recurrently on the vitamins from his Phrase, the Bible. Do not forget that he says,
“I’ve by no means stop loving you and by no means will. Count on love, love and extra love!” Jeremiah 31:3 (The Message)
