The Lord shall guide you continually and satisfy you in drought … You shall be like a watered garden and like a spring of water whose waters fail not. – Isaiah 58:11 AMPC
God promised in Isaiah that He was ready to guide us continually, to satisfy us and give us health, even if we go through “drought.” In fact, we will be “like a watered garden and like a spring of water whose waters fail not.”
But these promises have conditions. The Bible also says that God wants us to care about others and give out of what He has given us. As we apply this generous attitude, the Bible promises that “the Lord will answer” when we call (v. 9).
We should be motivated by the needs of others, ready to do everything we can to take away “yokes of oppression.” As we are concerned about the needs of others, He promises that our light would “rise in darkness, and your obscurity and gloom become like the noonday” (v. 9-10).
The Bible promises that God wants us to be successful in our work, in our personal lives, finances, health, and ministries. This success starts when we commit our lives to Him, as we are generous with the things God has given us, and use our resources to help others and to spread His Kingdom.
Today, declare His promises to be true for you. Don’t give in to doubt, but realize He wants you to be “like a watered garden.” He has blessed you that you might bless others. Trust in Him to bring you success!
PrayerFather, Help me to be a faithful steward of all the blessings You have given me. I trust in You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
