TODAY’S READING
Psalm 107:33-37

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
God can bring life where there seems to be none.

[The Lord] turns rivers into a desert, springs of water into thirsty ground. – Psalm 107:33 (NRSVUE)

One day, I looked across a valley and saw a garden of maize. I wondered why the garden had been planted in such a hot, sandy, and dry place. I was surprised there could be such green growth in an almost desert area. Then I learned that the farmer had dug wells to water his garden so that he was able to plant the maize and get a plentiful harvest.

When I seem to be stuck in barren situations, God is able to make waters spring up and bring me renewed life. Oftentimes, when we feel like we are dwelling in a desert, our needs overwhelm us. When our work seems not to be yielding anything good, we feel lifeless, barren, unfruitful. But God is able and willing to cause waters to flow in the midst of our deserts to give life, fruitfulness, and productivity — even where there seems to be no hope. So let us be encouraged by our powerful and loving God!

TODAY’S PRAYER
O Lord, may you create fruitful fields from the barren situations in our lives. In the name of Jesus. Amen.

PRAYER FOCUS
Gratitude for God’s power to renew
