My dearly beloved in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The auspicious life giving word of the Lord, for today is from the book of Isaiah 43:19, “I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert”.
“ A way in the wilderness.“ Desert is called wilderness. If your life is like a desert that is dried up, today, the Lord’s word says, ‘I will open a way for your survival in that place’. What will happen then? The wilderness will become a fertile land. For your deserted life to become a prosperous one, the Lord who said, ‘I am the way’ will make a way for your living in the that dry place. You may say, “ I have no way to settle the debts “. There is no way to come out of this problem. The Lord is telling such children, ‘I will even make a way in the wilderness’. The Lord is saying that new ways, new opportunities, and new blessings are going to knock at your door. Ways will open in those matters where the door seems to be shut.
There is a another point in this verse, which says, ‘I will make rivers in the desert’. Rivers channel the water to different places. Your blessing is going to be a blessing to the entire place. You may be thinking, ‘For all these days, I was not a blessing to myself, or for my family, The income I receive is not sufficient for me. It is not enough for my children, to educate them. But in this life of wilderness, the Lord will create new rivers. New springs and rivers of blessings will flow for you to make the place fertile.
Prayer: Loving Father, we thank you! You have said, ‘I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert’. Create new opportunities, new blessings, and a new way for the income of your children and honour them with new grace. You have told that Your mercies are new every morning. Give your children new grace and honour them. Let all the solitude in their lives be changed. Let their life of wilderness be changed into fertile land. A land that brings forth vegetation and fruit.
