I saw this picture on Instagram the other day and God just spoke to me through it.

Many of us walk through life and encounter seasons that are extremely fruitful and we see tremendous growth and blessings and there are other times we are in a desolate season. Where we are facing trial after trial, our walk seems to be dry and as though God is far away. We enter a season of being in the desert and we thirst for light and hope to drizzle down, even pour down upon us. We seek and plead with God during the storms for some sort of breakthrough because when the lightening bolts strike and hit us at the inner core of our souls we are rocked, we start to sink and sometimes we feel as though we are drowning.

But here is what I LOVE about this picture and about the truth and promises of God. No matter how dry and desolate the desert is, no matter how alone we feel and how far away we believe God is. No matter how hard the bolt of lighting strikes, God is always with us. His covenant is surrounding us, shielding us and protecting us. Isn’t that just simply amazing? God loves us so deeply and passionately and he is always with us, even when we feel he is not.

I don’t know what you are going through or what season you are in. I don’t know if you are in an amazing place and you are about to enter into a time of isolation. I don’t know if you have been in the desert and you are dragging your feet because there has been no water to quench your thirst. If you have been hit with one storm after another or if you have been bargaining with God to show his face, but I can tell you this. You will encounter a multitude of seasons in your walk and you will encounter times of great highs and the lows of lows. You will feel as though God has your back and you will feel as though he has forsaken you but remember this. In the darkest most isolated times in your walk is where God meets you, shows his face bigger and brighter and its in these seasons you are truly transformed. God will never give up on you, fail you or turn his back from you. Trust and seek him no matter how broken you feel. His promises and covent embody you and his love will lavish you. His love is faithful, unconditional and never ending.
