It’s the place of relief and shelter where we find refreshment from the sweltering heat of a wilderness experience. Maybe you are in that desert dryness. And oh, how you could use the renewing waters of an oasis just about now. God has a way of leading us to those oasis comforts at exactly the time we need them.

David knew this about God and found encouragement in remembering oasis times when he wrote these words —

God, when you took the lead with your people, when you marched out into the wild, earth shook, sky broke out in a sweat; God was on the march. Even Sinai trembled at the sight of God on the move, at the sight of Israel’s God. You pour out rain in buckets, O God; thorn and cactus become an oasis for your people to camp in and enjoy.
Psalm 68:7-9 The Message

Never forget that God is on the move in your life.

And a thorn and cactus can become an oasis when you least expect it. He will provide an oasis comfort for you to camp in and enjoy.

David discovered the secret of experiencing God’s oasis — following the lead of the Lord. He may lead us out into the wild, but He daily bears our burdens (Psalm 68:19) and gives power and strength to his people (Psalm 68:35).

So today, dear friend, if you are in the wild today, keep walking with Jesus. Stay close to Him. Abide in Him. Soak in His Word. He will lead you to an oasis where you will find a time of refreshing in His Presence (Acts 3:19).

♥ Blessings and Grace to You!
