You know it is Wednesday and we only have two more work days before we have another lovely weekend. We are anticipating going out and having some fun again this weekend. Today, I am sharing a thought from Isaiah 35:1: " A Desert in Bloom". When you think about a desert, you think of being dry. When you think about a bloom, you think of openness and new beginnings. We all have times when we feel like we are lost in the wilderness. We have a sense for spiritual things. We believe in God. But when we look, we cannot see God; when we listen, we cannot hear him; when we try to walk in his ways, we stumble like the lame; and when we try to declare his name, we can make no sound at all. Have you ever been there? Do you sometimes feel like a man in the wilderness? Are you there today? Isaiah 35 speaks to the man in the wilderness. The words of this chapter provide a truck load of hope for the person who feels like they are in a spiritual wasteland. Are you lacking vigor? Does God seem distant and unresponsive to you? Have you tried going your own way for awhile and discovered that you can’t dig your way out of the pit? Listen carefully. Isaiah has good news for you. You will see the glory of the Lord. Are you spiritually dry? Your God will come. Isaiah is summarizing revival for us. God will take us from desert to glory. Will you let God come to you in your desert and lead you to glory? As he comes to you, respond to him with faith. Allow him to be your Lord and lead you along the Way of Holiness. That Way is the road to glory.
