From a Bitter Spring

     I do not call you a failure or inadequate. I do not call you the tail, but the head. Do not fear man, for what they do unto you they do unto Me. I desire to bring fresh waters out of a bitter spring, for I did not create that spring to be bitter, but it has become Marah – waters of bitterness. I delight to make the spring fresh and soothing for all who come to it.

     Give them My words of life. Do not fear man, for where he meant evil, I will make your words bring conviction. Even the sound of your voice will be as My words speaking to them. Be unafraid of everything. I position you to be My righteous voice in a weary land. You will be as refreshing pools of water.

  • “So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water.And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah. And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink? And he cried unto the Lord; and the Lord shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them, and said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.”  Exodus 15:22-26
