Of course, water is good for everyone all the time but it is especially important when traveling through arid areas. It is important to plan ahead, have an ample supply, and stay hydrated. Water is precious.
We also noticed some homes collecting rainwater in barrels; preparing ahead for the dry season. They don’t waste it and they are very intentional.
Are there times you drink deep of God’s life-giving Word in anticipation for those desert times?
My most intense communication with God always seems to be during those dry times. When things are going well, I am, unfortunately, not quite as serious a student as I am in times of trial. The more challenging the moment, the more God has my attention. I am “all ears”.
Heavenly Father ~ help me to desire your Word even in times of plenty. Amen.
Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers. Psalm 1:1-3 NIV
