"Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water'." (John 7:38)

"Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God. And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual." (1Cor. 2:12-13)

Leveling The Playing Field

"A voice is calling, 'Clear the way for the Lord in the wilderness; Make smooth in the desert a highway for our God. Let every valley be lifted up, And every mountain and hill be made low; And let the rough ground become a plain, And the rugged terrain a broad valley...'" (Isaiah 40:3-4 NASB)

In the midst of our own wilderness, when we prepare the way for the Lord, we allow Him to go before us to raise the valleys of deception & self pity; to bring down the mountains of religion & self righteousness; and to level the rugged ground of our own understanding and self reliance.



  1. That's the best interpretation of that verse I've ever seen.

  2. As you so poetically stated,
    "Painfully filled with hope, words of Life advance,
    pushing, squeezing, desperate to find their entrance.
    Gentle and patient, yet bold to take down walls,
    They finally in the end lose their life ...to win." :-)
