USCCB - (NAB) - December 10, 2009
"The afflicted and the needy seek water in vain,
their tongues are parched with thirst.
I, the LORD, will answer them;
I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them.
I will open up rivers on the bare heights,
and fountains in the broad valleys;
I will turn the desert into a marshland,
and the dry ground into springs of water.
I will plant in the desert the cedar,
acacia, myrtle, and olive;
I will set in the wasteland the cypress,
together with the plane tree and the pine,
That all may see and know,
observe and understand,
That the hand of the LORD has done this,
the Holy One of Israel has created it."
How often do we ourselves 'seek water in vain'...we look for and try to grab whatever we think will console our longing hearts. However, it is the Lord alone that can truly satisfy. The amazing, beautiful things that He has in store for us if only we trust Him is beyond our comprehension.
May you experience God's abundant blessings today.
