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 NIV
We need God’s guidance. He knows what we need. When we are weak, He strengthens us.
It’s humbling when our health fails and when we are too tired to get out of bed. The Lord knows when we need His strength. He also gives us opportunities to rest when we need to.
When I was recovering from COVID-19 this fall, I forgot to water an apple seedling that I had been nurturing for weeks. During my illness I was too weak to get out of bed. The seedling died. I felt bad that I had forgotten to water it.
God knows that we need water, and He never forgets about us!
I tried again with a new seedling, and I am more watchful this time. Amen.
