What's Gonna Get You Through?
Sometimes I feel as though I’m dog-paddling in the water of life, just barely keeping my head above the surface. Do you ever feel this way?
If so, then you know how hard it is to maintain our closeness with God. But we must, because He is the Source of our strength (Psalm 27:1). He will bring us through.
In this time of treading water, I need the hope and transformation Ezekiel 47:1-12 conveys:
How great is our God! Each time, he brought me through. In Isaiah 43:2-3 He says “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you…For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior…” Because He is our Savior and Lord, we wade into healing waters and no matter how deep our problems, He is there to bring us through.
When the stresses of life are up to our neck and we feel as if any moment, we might go under, remember how He brought me and returned me to a transformed riverbank. There were trees abundant with leaves and fruit that neither wither nor fail. Psalm 1:1-3 tells me when I delight in the law of the Lord, I am one of those trees. In anxieties of life, He takes me from a place of drowning, transplants me and I am revived. My roots drink in nourishment and hydration from Jesus, my Living, Healing Water and my Sanctuary.
