Desert Schools

Read: Psalm 63: 1-12

O Allah, You are my God, I seek you, my soul is thirsting for you, my body longs for you, like a dry and barren soil, not watery. (Psalm 63: 2)

Reading the Bible in a Year:
1 Thessalonians 1-5

Desert Schools - Hot, barren, dry, no life! That's the general overview of the wilderness: almost no good there. And David experienced a situation this wilderness. Emotionally he is experiencing drought, dry thoroughly. He pursued-not by others, but by Absalom, his own son, who wanted to seize the throne.

David had reason to complain to God about all of these situations. "Lord, I am not loyal to you? Why did you give me such a wicked son? "David could have protested like this. But he did not. Instead of complaining, he would seek the Lord (vv. 2-3), and exalt His name (vv. 4-6). He remembered the miracle of God that accompanies and save it in the past (vv. 7-9). David's Psalm closes with the conviction that God will save him, on the present and future (vv. 10-12).

Honestly, it is not easy to praise God in the midst of the struggle to live weight. When facing family conditions were hot, dry, and pressing inward, what is our reaction? In humans, our natural reaction is anger and protest. God's Word invites us to respond to the suffering of life is not to cuss and curse, but to draw closer to God, remembering His goodness in the past, and ask for his help in the present. Difficult? Let us trust God! He, by His grace, capable of providing springs in the middle of the desert of our lives. -SYS
Stay believe that in the middle of the desert even God can open the eyes of our inner cooling water.
