Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert. – Isaiah 43:19 NKJV
New changes, opportunities, and experiences can be daunting, but whatever we do, we can ask Jesus to give us the confidence and strength to move forward towards our short-term and long-term goals.
We can make plans, but ultimately God lets us know the right path to take, whether it be through a spiritual or physical wilderness.
He can give us life-sustaining water, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
On the way back home from a recent road trip, I encountered a fountain at a candy shop in the middle of the desert. In the sweltering heat, my husband, son, and I walked over a decorative bridge to a fountain, which seemed like a desert oasis. The surrounding mountains lacked water.
Jesus supplies us with water of life, just when our well runs dry. Amen.
