Scripture: Isaiah 41:17-20
In Isaiah 41:17-20 we are told, “The poor and needy seek water, but there is none, Their tongues fail for thirst. I, the Lord, will hear them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them. I will open rivers in desolate heights, And fountains in the midst of the valleys; I will make the wilderness a pool of water, And the dry land springs of water. I will plant in the wilderness the cedar and the acacia tree, The myrtle and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the cypress tree and the pine And the box tree together, That they may see and know, And consider and understand together, That the hand of the Lord has done this, And the Holy One of Israel has created it.” The beautiful thing about God’s promise here is that it tells us, whatever we need, we can ask for! And if we are in His will, He will create it for us. If we are thirsty in the desert, He will create rivers or fountains. In the wilderness, He will make pools of water and cause springs to come up. He will do it so that people will understand that He created it. Nobody can do that except God. God wants us to continually have a testimony of His creation because we are in relationship with Him. He is our health, He is our healer, He is our Creator. He will even create new body parts if we need them. God wants to be honored again among His people as the Creator. Nobody can match the Creator. When the creative begins to happen, every other counterfeit god bows at the testimony of a person who has received a touch from God’s creative Hand. Every person! It is time for the church to stand up and receive the touch of God’s creative Hand. It is testimony time because the King wants the testimony of His creation on the lips of His people.
