A Miraculous Turnaround

In HIS Presence

A Miraculous Turnaround

Read: Psalm 126

Meditation verse:“Restore our fortunes, Lord, like the streams in the Negev” (Ps 126:4, NLT)

The Negev is a dry arid land surrounded by mountains, located in the Southern region of Jerusalem and Judea. It takes its name from the Hebrew word ‘Neghev’ which means dry. For most of the year, it remains a dry riverbed (wadi) with no water at all. However, something miraculous happens in the springtime. During the rainy season, the wadi collects water from various areas. Suddenly and swiftly, the dry riverbed turns into dangerous torrents of water within a short while of torrential rain. For a day or two, the dry wadi becomes torrents of flash floods, its dry riverbed overflowing with flood waters into the desert.

In the journey of your Christian faith, you will encounter a Negev experience every now and then. And just like the streams of the Negev, God can turn the tides suddenly in your favour. He can swiftly bring back your captivity and restore your fortunes. God can furnish a table for you in the wilderness. And when He does, you will be like those who dream.

What is your own ‘Negev’ experience? Spiritual dryness, backsliding, financial lack, marital bareness, bondage to sin or what have you? Why not cry to God today as the psalmist did; “Restore our fortunes, Lord, like the streams in the Negev”.
