Reveal | Day 20- March 16 | Psalm 107

Blake Spencer
I turned onto the long winding driveway, heart pounding and mind racing. As I parked my car, I looked up at the large home in front of me. For the next 24 hours it would serve as my getaway, a quiet place to silence the outside noise and seek wisdom and answers from my Father. I turned my cell phone off, grabbed my Bible and journal and anxiously made my way to the upstairs suite. On the table waiting for me was a bowl of cherries and a note saying, “We hope you find what you’re looking for, stay as long as you’d like.” I took a deep breath and thought to myself, “Lord please meet me here and speak to me.”

The days and weeks leading up to this moment were stressful. I had just finished my sophomore year of college and was contemplating transferring to a different university. I had family and friends on both sides pushing and pulling in both directions. I felt lost and confused. Looking back, it felt like I was in the wilderness alone. I knew the only way to gain clarity on my situation was to get away and ask the Lord for help.

We serve a God who provides us with an enduring love, a love that is so unyielding that when we quiet our minds and ask him to show up, he will. When life feels like it is upside down, his love endures forever. When you find yourself on life’s mountaintops, his love endures forever. When pain, loss, and grief cause you to spiral, his love endures forever. When you find yourself in the wilderness “hungry and thirsty”, his love endures forever.

In the stillness of the morning, the Lord spoke so loudly and clearly to me and gave me a peace that only he can give. In that moment I experienced Psalm 107:9 “For he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.” If you find yourself in your own wilderness, slow down and ask the Lord to meet you where you are. I am confident that you will be able to say, “Give thanks to the Lord for he is good; his love endures forever.”
