Everyday Promises – 21

A SUN SCORCHED LAND

The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. Isaiah 58:11 NIV

The 19 men in the Burke and Wills expedition party left Melbourne in winter 1860. They headed north trying to be the first to cross the continent from south to north. They had difficulties and delays at every step. Eventually they reached Cooper Creek, NSW. Half stayed at this base camp and Burke and Wills and two other men pushed on to the gulf only to be stopped by swampland near the coast. They struggled to get back to Cooper Creek running low on food and water but the rest of the men had given up waiting for them and headed home only a few hours before they arrived. All but one of the expeditionary party died in the outback. Have you ever felt that you are living in a sun-scorched land? Your soul is parched and your heart hungry for love and meaning. Without Jesus you too will die in this arid land. Call on Jesus today for he can fill you full of living water. It will refresh and sustain you always.
