The Cloud Part Two

My, Devotion to Him #210

Verse Passage: Psalm 126:4-6 “Restore our fortunes, Lord, like streams in the Negev. Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them.” – NIV

Something that I have found to be very difficult is living between what God has done in the past and what I am praying for God to do for me in the future. I don’t think I’m the only one. 

It’s the place that is often said to be the desert. The place of what you say is a dry spell and a drought. Maybe your in this very place right now. 

When we find our self in this place, our eyes automatically go to what we don’t have and what seems to be missing in our life. Our focus goes to our frustrations, and to many other places, instead of going to Him and His faithfulness.

But! It does not have to be this way. We have a choice in every season, even seasons of drought when we seem to be wandering around in a desert. We get to choose our view. We get to decide if we will complain about what’s missing or lacking in our life. Or if we will call out to God and seek His aid to provide what’s needed in our life. We get to decide if we will see the dry ground as a cause for complaint and anger or as the very situation that cause a reaction of motivation within us to cry out to God in complete and utter dependence and desperation. 

We get to decide if we will stare at the parched, dry ground or fix your eyes towards heaven that is full blessings. 

A season of drought can actually drive you to greater devotion. It can bring you to a place of asking God to manifest once again our life. It is a season in which can force us to go deeper into His throne room. It’s can cause us to seek with more eagerness. It can position us into an opportunity for us to plead to Him and for Him to do a work in us and in our life that only He can. This is our choice. It’s your choice. The choice is yours. 

God bless.
