Living in A Dry Wasteland
Psalm 63:1-2 (KJB) A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah. O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; 2 To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.
As you read through these two passages can’t you just feel David’s pain? He is calling out to God from a dry wasteland.
David is spiritually depleted.
David is spiritually wasting away.
David is desperate for God to work and will in his life.
Yes, we have all been knee deep in our own desperate situations. Times when we could not put one foot in front of the other.
David is barely managing to crawl with his head above the water.
Today a child of God has the eternal power and presence of God alive and at work in his heart and mind.
In the times of David, which preceded Calvary, the Spirit of God could come and go from working inside a heart according to the will and way of God.
Aren’t you so glad today that once a man has chosen to accept the gift of God, He remains working inside your heart and mind? Though at times a situation may seem desperate and in our wasteland, God may seem to be far away, you can be sure He never moves from dwelling inside your heart.
