There is healing, encouragement, peace and comfort in the living waters of our Lord Jesus Christ. As we trust Him more and more we are like ships on a journey that He guides and directs. There are days of blistering heat, raging storms and high waves along the way but the obstacles are no match to the love of Jesus Christ. No matter what we face, the living water is lifting us up.
When we see things unfold for the purpose of Jesus Christ it’s worth the trip. There are times when we face many obstacles and God calms one of them. That is encouraging because He can be trusted to take care of the next one. Other times we pray for something and our neighbor gets the exact blessing we are trusting for while we still wait. That is encouraging because God isn’t done yet and we have not been skipped over. Then comes the time when others rejoice while they watch our blessings come. Whether we are the ones rejoicing with others or others are rejoicing with us, Jesus is Lord. When God raises the rivers of flowing blessings all boats float.
I bow before Your holy Temple as I worship.
I praise Your name for Your unfailing love and faithfulness;
for Your promises are backed by all the honor of Your name.
As soon as I pray, You answer me; You encourage me by giving me strength.
