and streams on the dry ground;
I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants." - Isaiah 44:3
We have seen the physical signs of the outpouring of water (rain) in Western Cape lately and it has been glorious. This time last year people were desperate for rain and all those prayers have certainly been heard and answered. Streams are flowing again, rivers are pouring into the sea after many years and waterfalls are brimming with water.
The second part of today's reading promises that God will pour out his Spirit on our communities too. And we long for that. We long for our dry and thirsty souls to soak up the life giving Spirit of God.
If you are feeling dry and empty, hold onto this promise. God knows what you need and he will send it in good time.
"The Spirit-filled life is not a special, deluxe edition of Christianity. It is part and parcel of the total plan of God for His people." - A.W. Tozer
