Rivers in the desert

How does God cause waters to flow in dry places?  How does He "give waters in the wilderness and rivers in the desert"?  He is no magician but a worker of miraculous processes.  What, then, is the process He intends to work out in our day that will turn our parched communities around for good?

The answer is in His people.  We are His agents for changing the world.  Jesus rightly claimed that He was the light of the world (John 9:5), which implied that He was God's answer to the world's darkness.  We too, Christ has said, are light for the world's gross darkness and salt for the earth's decay and tastelessness.  We are God's answer to the world - but we need to know this and be it.

If only believers will understand that there is a river flowing from the presence of God within them, and that wherever this river flows it produces life!  With this understanding, we will pass through the "valley of weeping" and turn it into a place of blessing (Psalm 84:5-7).  Without this knowledge, we will be numbered with the millions of mere water-drinkers who are only desperate for some sort of relief from the dryness of their lives.

Let us reconnect with the Lord who dwells in secret, find the portion of dry land He wants us to possess, and become the answer that everyone around will seek - all to the glory of our King, Jesus!

This is a mighty Word. I pray that the church realizes that as we connect with Him who is the river flowing out of us than we will be the rivers in our communities.

Amen! This is the whole essence of our walk with God and the basis of our rewards in heaven.
