Streams in the Desert!

Happy Wednesday!

One year ago today, I wrote the following message…

Psalms 126:4 “Restore our fortunes, Lord, as streams renew the desert.”

As I read that verse, I thought about all you guys out there hoping for RESTORATION these days. Undoubtedly, the financial situation of these past two years has taken its toll on most Americans. And as funds tighten, attitudes flair… causing far too many problems in the home.

Relationships are under fire… husbands and wives, parents and children, employers and employees… even close friends.

People have lost their jobs, their houses, their families, and in many cases… their sanity, their hope, their faith, and their love.

While I believe that some of this pain is good… and after the tribulation is over, most of us will be far better for it… there is a point at which most of the lessons have been learned and we must start standing for restoration.

Psalms 126:4Restore our fortunes, Lord, as streams renew the desert.”

This is an amazing prayer, don’t you think? Most people go through a long time of complaining about their misfortunes before actually going to GOD with FAITH that HE can RESTORE their fortunes!

Why do we wait so long before asking for Gods help? Because we don’t really believe that he LOVES us all that much and therefore we are not sure if HE WANTS TO HELP US. Other people have a way of making us feel like we can never be good enough to merit Gods help… and that is just NOT TRUE my friends.

The beginning of faith is found in Hebrews 11:6“And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.”

Everyone pretty much believes that God IS… and that God IS ABLE to do some pretty amazing things if he feels like it. But do we BELIEVE that GOD wants to do those amazing things for us? This is the million dollar question!

In order to get our fortunes restored… we have to start BELIEVING that God is a REWARDING GOD… that God is a GOOD AND LOVING FATHER… that God is GOOD AND LOVING TO US… and that God is able and WILLING TO RESTORE OUR FORTUNES!

Psalms 126:4 “Restore our fortunes, Lord, as streams renew the desert.”

The writer of this psalm believed and prayed for restoration… “As streams RENEW the DESERT!” Do you have the faith to ASK FOR THIS KIND OF BLESSING! What are you waiting for??? Refuse to keep on moping around with the rest of the mopers in this desert! PRAY FOR RESTORATION! Pray for STREAMS IN THIS DESERT… PRAY FOR GOD TO RESTORE ALL YOUR FORTUNES… and watch how fast EVERYTHING STARTS TO CHANGE FOR YOU!

This morning when I started to blog, I felt like I was supposed to go back one year ago today and read that message. When I did, it bounced from the page so much… I felt like somebody might benefit from those words TODAY! I love you guys and I’m praying for your restoration… hoping that today’s blog STARTS SOMETHING NEW in you… a new attitude of FAITH that turns your dry ground into a lush green pasture! Have a most triumphant day…

Dream Big, Live Bold, and Make the Difference!

  1. Hey Chuck,

    We've been feeling the strain a lot lately. And I've been feeling the loss of my sanity at times as well. Thank you for today's message. It's what I needed today 🙂

    • Hey Dawn… so happy to hear from you guys… and VERY happy to hear that my message lifted you! Keep smiling, you guys are beautiful people! We love you and we're praying for you!

      1 Peter 4:12-14 Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you. 13But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. 14If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you.
