Rise up from the desolate heights.

Isa 41:9 I have chosen you, and not cast you away. 

The Lord our God has a chosen people, a Holy generation. We are His royal priesthood and He has not cast us away. He says in the next verse that we are to “fear not for I am with you, be not dismayed for I am your God, I will strengthen you, yes I will help you and I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” He will give us strength when all around the world there is growing hostility towards His people. He knows this, He sees this. He sees you, He knows you and He will help you and He will certainly uphold you by the strength of His righteous right arm. If He is for you saint, then what shall become of him who is against you? If His thoughts towards you are more numerous than the sands of the seashore, then why should you be afraid? These are promises from the Living God and they shall never be broken.

His promise to us is “I will open rivers in the desolate heights and fountains in the depths of the valleys. I will make the wilderness a pool of water and the dry land springs of water.” (Isa 41:18)There are no conditions brothers and sisters where our Lord’s arm is short in helping His sons and daughters. Even in the desolate heights there shall appear living waters that flow in a pure river as clear as crystal from the throne of God and from the Lamb. Even in the depths of the deepest valley, surrounded by the darkness and hostility of a world that hates God, there shall be a fountain, an inexhaustible fountain of Living water drawn from the river of life that flows from the desolate heights. These waters are the waters of joy and gladness, peace and strength and the very love of God. They sustain us and empower us and give us the strength to carry on. These desolate heights and deep deep valleys are the barren landscapes of a world without God. We are life in the desert that amazes the creatures of such places. A witness to a dying world that life exists and not only life, but an abundance of life where once was only sand and dry bones.

If the gentile observers shall follow the source of this life then it shall lead them to God. If those who dwell in such great darkness see light where there should be no light then it shall draw them like a moth to a flame. What is this source of life they will ask and from where comes this light that shines out like a beacon among the barren places? We have the answer, for we once dwelt in the same darkness. We were once without such living water and now we rise from the desolate heights. We rise up from the valleys. We rise up in the updrafts of His presence. The incense of our prayers rises up and takes us before the throne where all life flows from. Rise up today brothers and sisters in the strength of our Lord. He has chosen you and not cast you away. He is you strength to carry on. He is your life where once was only death. He is your Living water and you shall never thirst again. He is your very sanity in a world gone mad. He is your peace that surpasses all understanding in a world where there is no peace. He is all these things and He is so much more and He loves you in a thousand ways that you can barely imagine. Go forth today in the strength of such knowledge and in the manifest presence of God.
