(Proverbs 25:25 KJV) As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country.
It has been a long time since I have been working all day in a hot, Southern California summer. If you have never had that kind of experience then you don’t understand how good water can taste. It doesn’t even need to be cold. Just the water out of a hose can be an elixir of regeneration. That is what good news can do for us.
It can be such basic information as the plane carrying family members landed safely. It can be a lab report saying the biopsy was benign. It can be a reminder that Jesus died for your sins and that you are trusting in that shed blood for your salvation. God has many ways of reminding us of His blessings. I had another, “Why me?” moment this morning. My thoughts went around the world to parents in other lands who wondered where the food for their children would come from today. I thought of people in war zones and children separated from their parents. There are people who have children that won’t talk to them.
So? Good news is all around us. May God open your eyes and help you see it.
