The Waters Of Zion

16 Aug

The Waters Of Zion…

Israel contains land that could be continents away from each other: Mediterranean seashores; Mount Hermon’s snow-capped peaks; the Jordan Valley; the Judean hill country; the Negev; Samaria’s rocky heights; plain of Sharon; the mountains surrounding Jerusalem; fertile valley of Jezreel and Armageddon; the barren moonscape of the wilderness; the Sea of Galilee; and much more – all in a land no larger than the state of New Jersey.

Small countries usually don’t have all this. They might be all desert like Yemen, or mountains like Tibet. But Israel is the “Every-Land Land.” Back then, people worshiped gods of the mountains, desert, sea, and farmland.

But the God of Israel was, and is, different. He’s God of all land. He’s the God of the good times when you’re high in spirit. But God’s love is just as present in the valleys of the low times.

He’s the God of the abundant and the poor, the fertile and the dry. God is unconditional. He’ll walk with you in every landscape of your life.

So be comforted and glad. He’s faithful to you. Be faithful to Him. He’s the “Every-Land” God. You be His “Every Land” follower.

For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, Romans 10:12

No matter what situation you find yourself in today, rejoice in the Lord and in the fact that His presence is all around you.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
