Rivers run from the source, and even when it meets an obstacle blocking its path, a river will soon find a path around it. The river of God is the same way…overcoming all obstacles, flowing onto the barren desert of our life, transforming it into something new. And when we are securely planted by the river of God, we will flourish and yield fruit, we will not wither, and whatever we do will prosper. (Psalm 1:3) But we must always pay attention to the Source when obstacles and difficulties block our path. For the power comes from the Source…and as we fasten our eyes on God, abundant blessings and endurance will flow into our lives.
