Dry and rocky pathways? A recent drought has reminded me of something over the course of the last few months; its reminded me of the spiritual drought that has also closed in upon our land. As we have watered our properties to keep them green, how shall we water our lives to keep them spiritually alive in these dry and desert-like times of spiritual decay?
Think about it. How shall you and I make it through these times of spiritual drought? Do we need to water the path of our passage through these difficult times with tears of repentance remembering our Savior who walked this dry and lonely path before us?
God’s Word tells us: As she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them. (Luke 7:38).
We can take hope in the fact that He would not ask us to walk a path Jesus had not already trod. The way will be secure but not without sorrow, pain and hardship. In the end, our lives of repentance and faith will keep the path green when all other paths around us are barren and dry.
“Heavenly Father, the dry and rocky paths that sometime face us are difficult to bear. Help us on our way. Don't let these hardships dilute our devotion to You or turn our hearts away from the sacrifice of our Savior. In Jesus name, Amen!
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) www.thispassingday.com
