 "Water will spring up in dry places." "He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye." Deut. 32:10

What are the significant, reverberating thoughts from today’s reading for you? I’m going to post mine here, allowing the process of rethinking and retyping to get them to sink deeper. No commentary today. Just the echoes of some great and powerful thoughts.

“…we who will…become only the watermark of our own lives–present, but fading into the background of Him…”

“When the Supernatural blows on us, it blows our status quo away.”

“…when we pray for our own soul’s revival, we pray for upheaval. We are frail and scare easily, and God is gracious not to reveal all His plans or define what upheaval means. In our finiteness we would quake at the scale of them.”

“When we want God more than anything, we forgo our control of what life looks like. We must be ready for popularity lost. Comfort interrupted. Reason tossed away. Self disregarded. Sin exposed.”

“My heart screams, ‘Please let me be!’ and ‘Let me have God, too.””

“Where there is change there will first be a denial of something that hasn’t worked and a new found focus and effort on something that will.”

“Most of us bail when the revival fires nip closer to our heels and the prayers for ‘whatever it takes’ are taken seriously. We have only given half our hearts, gone partway in, and we are scared.”
