God’s Renewal Will Come

Isaiah 35:1-10

During the time of the Dust Bowl in the central United States, there was no joy nor peace, no beauty, and no rest. People had to struggle daily just to get by. Destitution and need was the order of the day. God proved his goodness and mercy when He restored the land and people could again provide for their families.

Have you ever seen the desert after a cleansing rain? The water washes out the dry river beds and gullies, and flowers spring up where once only dryness, sand and desolation ruled. The beauty, though only for a short time, is profuse. In Isaiah 35, the beautiful desert scene that comes after rain is a picture of the beauty and peace that God gives when He restores His people.

The prophet Isaiah envisions, “Water will gush forth in the wilderness,” and “The burning sand will become a pool, and the thirsty ground bubbling springs” (Isaiah 35:6-7). God restores both His lands and His people when they return to Him with joy and praise. When the people return to God, the land flourishes.

    Reflecting God is the daily devotional component of our adult Bible study curriculum, Adult Faith Connections. The scriptures and themes are coordinated to help provide a comprehensive experience for growing followers of Jesus Christ. The “Session Truth” is a summary of the biblical truth being explored in each week’s session of Adult Faith Connections. It can be found in both the leader and participant guides for each week’s study.

    Thank you for your interest in Reflecting God.
