Being Saturated By His Love
Scripture: “The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail..” Isaiah 58:11
Devotional: In all of my years here on planet Earth, I don’t ever recall experiencing what we are witnessing every day during this summer of 2023. During the past few weeks, we have seen record temperatures well over 102 degrees each day and soaring to numbers that are mind-blowing. In the midst of all this, this verse reminds us that God is able to guide us through unbearable times and will strengthen us because His grace is like an everlasting water sprinkler that showers us with His love!
Prayer: Eternal and Majestic Father, we worship you and give you glory, honor, and praise for being our Rock in a weary land. Thank you for your protection and your provision during these extremely hot days physically but also for being our shield and covering us emotionally, socially, and spiritually. Now Lord, remind us to never give up or never give in and put us in a place where we can feel your presence falling fresh on us each day; for you are a God who never fails, In the name of Jesus, we pray, Amen and Amen!
Reflection Question: Can you describe feeling God’s presence when the heat is on in your personal life?
