Scripture: from verse 7
The sandy mirage will become a pool…
Observation: This is one of the “when the Lord reigns everything will be wonderful” chapters. I know two different songs based on verses from it, which is not a record but still pretty good.
Mirages are false promises. They seem to offer relief and refreshment and a whole new life, and then when we turn towards them they vanish. Over and over and over again.
But God doesn’t make false promises. His world does not contain things that seem to be and are not. What He offers is real, and we can trust Him.
Someday we will be able to trust our renewed senses. We will know the truth instinctively, and it will not vanish as we approach. God promises life and life abundantly.
Application: Trust in the Lord. He doesn’t vanish.
Prayer: Yeshua, I praise you because you are Truth and you do not change. Thank you for being willing to reveal truth to me, and to guide me to real refreshment. Help me to trust you and not my own guesses. Amen.
