“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.”
Sometimes we go through a trial and wait for God to send water into our dry wasteland. While patience is important, we can often “prime the pump” through our praise, thanksgiving, and worship. As we reflect on our many blessings and celebrate what God has already done for us, our dry souls draw water from the well of his past mercies.
Often just remembering what God has done for you naturally leads to thanksgiving, praise, and worship. When you recognize the many gifts he’s bestowed on you, as well as the many obstacles he’s allowed you to overcome, your heart overflows with gratitude.
Suddenly, we can see the way God has transformed the arid soil of our hearts into a garden producing his fruits of the Spirit.

Pray: “Father, I praise you for the many ways you have blessed and continue to bless me. Remind me that the rain always comes no matter how dry it may feel today.”
