Blooming in Dry Places Devotional (Word from the Lord Series)

Child, it is a glorious day even though you don't SEE the sonshine yet because it is still early. 

Bask in my presence, soak up my love and reach out to those around you. I will deliver captives. 

Deserts bloom when watered by my Spirit and my Word. Enjoy. Rejoice. Selah.

to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness. (NIV)

to say to the captives, 'Come out,' and to those in darkness, 'Be free!' "They will feed beside the roads and find pasture on every barren hill. (NIV)

[ The Year of the LORD's Favor ] The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners…. (NIV)

Prayer: Thank you, Lord, that you help us to bloom in dry places and that you have set us free (and continue to set us free) AND enable us to reach out to help others to see freedom in You. What an incredible calling, what an incredible blessing. AMEN.
