Dearly Beloved, I greet and bless you in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given for you today is from the book of Psalms 107:35-37 “’He turned the desert into pools of water, and the parched ground into flowing springs. There He brought the hungry to live, and they founded a city where they could, settle. They sowed fields and planted vineyards, and yielded a fruitful harvest.’
The above context is a hymn of praise which explains how the Lord has the power to change things. His authority is limitless. He can reverse the condition of anything and therefore the way of life for anybody. In this passage we see how the Lord has great power over nature. He is sovereign God and can restrain His blessings or He can give them in abundance if He so chooses. All around them the Jews saw, the harvest of hundreds of years of rebellion and ruined cities and barren fields. This was originally a land that flowed with milk and honey. It is a fact of life that wickedness brings judgement and repentance brings blessings. This barrenness and desolation that the people of Israel had to go through was a payment for neglecting the word of God. Israel had ignored the laws of God, and followed in the foolish worship of the pagans.
The Bible says, He turns the wilderness into standing water. God can change an uncultivated country like a desert into a fruitful land, as one that is well watered and cultivated.
The Bible says, God turns rivers into a desert, springs of water into thirsty ground, a fruitful land into springs of water. And there God allows the hungry to dwell and they sow fields and plant vineyards and get a fruitful, yield. By His blessing they multiply greatly and He does not permit their livestock to diminish or reduce, if they are brought low through oppression and sorrow, He pours His fury and anger on them and makes them to wander. But He raises up the needy out of affliction and makes their families like flocks. The upright see and are glad. Whoever is wise let him attend to these things and let him consider the steadfast love of the Lord.
Are you going through a dry and deserted life? Is there no prosperity and greenery in your business, family life or your ministry? Well God will turn your life of desert into springs of water. He will lead you beside the still waters. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow you all the days of your life. You shall be like a well watered garden, like a spring where waters never fail. God bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord we thank You for turning our dry and deserted life into a life of prosperity and greenery. Thank You Lord for providing the word of God through which we receive words of wisdom, to deal wisely. Lord You help us to become fruitful in grace and good works.
