The Lord Be With You Today!
For I will pour water on the thirsty land
and streams on the dry ground;
(The Lord tells us when we are desolate and desperate
that He will pour His water of life on the one who is thirsty,
on the inhospitable wasteland situation we face today.
He will pour the water of His Holy Spirit
into the searing, barren, desert of our lives
and flood the dried, cracked, gaping crevices of wounds and brokenness
with His refreshing, renewing, revitalizing river of life.)
I will pour out My Spirit on your offspring,
and My blessing on your descendants.
(From His never-ending vessel of plenty,
He will lavishly and freely pour out His very Spirit,
that Spirit that is He, that Spirit emanating from Himself,
even extending His mercies beyond us.
Because of His passion to bless us,
because of our walk with Him,
the Lord will rain down blessings on our children and grandchildren.
In His blessing, though, our offspring
are also more than biological descendents.
They are also our spiritual offspring, the spiritual seeds we sow,
the works of our hand, what we do to the glory and praise of the Lord.
His promise even reaches into the seed we sow
while we are in that "thirsty land" season of our lives.
Even then, He will bless what we birth in our days in this world,
on our “descendents” of good works,
on living a life of righteousness in Him,
and on the blessings we extend to those around us.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ’s love,
