As I opened my Streams in the Desert, this morning, August 26th, my heart was again stirred by the penned thoughts of someone long ago-now touching my heart today. God is so like that-giving me just what I need for the moment.
"Christ is wisdom and He is our deepest need."
"Perhaps the mountains will provide the rest I need." I went to the mountains, and when I awoke the first morning, I gazed at the magnificent mountain I had longed to see. But the sight did not satisfy, and the mountain said, "It is not in me."
What I really needed was the deep ocean of God's love, and the high mountains of His truth within me. His wisdom had depths and heights that neither the ocean nor the mountains could contain and that could not be compared with jewels, gold, or precious stones. Christ is wisdom and He is our deepest need. Our inner restlessness can only be pacified by the revelation of His eternal friendship and love for us."
from Streams in the Desert, L.B.Cowman
Christ has fulfilled my deepest need, my longing for peace with God, by a relationship with my Savior and Lord, Jesus, who died for me that I may have eternal life.
In all I do today, my words and actions are in thanksgiving for His abundant grace flowing over me.
