As a Well-Watered Garden

“…The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail….” – Isaiah 58:11 (KJV)

I’m always aware of how God sustains us despite our circumstances. Even in dry places and in drought, He satisfies us and makes us strong. I love have the verse reads, we shall be like a    well-watered garden and a spring whose waters never fail. I believe this can be meant for the physical, emotional and spiritual realms in our lives. Even in times when we lack the things we need and endure hardship, God provides us with our daily bread. And it’s during those times when we feel as though we are experiencing spiritual emptiness or an emotional barrenness, that we find that God sustains us and waters our souls to refresh us and to restore us.

We can sometimes feel as if we’re living in a desert – our lips dry and parched and we’re dying of thirst. But then God, who is ALWAYS on time, comes to us and waters us with His word, and grace to quench our thirst and bring us the needed relief we’ve been desiring. If you feel this way today, come to Jesus and ask Him to pour over you with the living water of His word.
