My Lord and King, usher me into the space of Your sweet provision until my soul comes alive in the Amen of worship. When I am caught in a trap of despondency because of my perceived lack, open my eyes to see the abundance of Your nearness. For when I cannot reach the fruit of the tree of life due to the heavy downward gaze of my heart, Your invitation to look up at You encourages me to stretch and grow my soul until all that You offer is within my reach. Truly, Lord, You use all things for good because I love You. Assuredly, You have promised everything that will come to pass. Who besides You can comfort my parched soul? Who but You can feed my hungry spirit with truth? Lord, increase my level of trust when the lands become barren. On Your Word let my weary heart take its unwavering stand. Under the blessed truth given n Jeremiah 31:2 and the authority of Christ, I pray with my heart turned upward in adoring praise.
Those who survive the coming destruction
will find blessings even in the barren land,
for I will give rest to the people
Jeremiah 31:2, NLT
