"You drench its furrows and level its ridges; you soften it with showers and bless its crops. The grasslands of the desert overflow; the hills are clothed with gladness."
(PSALM 65:10, 12)
The Holy Spirit is a force even stronger than those of nature. Like a mighty river, the Holy Spirit churns in our hearts, eroding away all that should not be there. The result is a beautiful heart, one that pleases our Lord and Savior. Just as the waters of the Colorado River are relentless in turning the rocks of the riverbed, making them smooth, so too is the Holy Spirit as He works on our hearts, smoothing over the rough spots and cutting a wide swath that evidences
His glory. And there the Son illuminates the beauty of what has taken place.
GOD MAKES EVEN THE ROUGHEST PATCHES SMOOTH AND BEAUTIFUL. HOW HAS HE DEMONSTRATED THIS IN YOUR LIFE? DOES YOUR HEART NEED TO BE SMOOTHED OVER?
