He brought us to a City



I was reading Psalm 107:1-9, and meditating on its significance… Then revelation came…

“Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; His love endures forever.
Let the redeemed of the LORD say so — those he redeemed from the hand of the foe, those he gathered from the lands, from east and west, from north and south.”
God loves it when we recognize His goodness and rehearse it with our mouth, our heart and our soul…

These next verses really got to me… read them… “Some wandered in desert wastelands, finding no way to a city where they could settle. They were hungry and thirsty, and their lives ebbed away. Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He led them by a straight way to a city where they could settle.”
In a minute as I read, it dropped in my heart that this is what God has done for me and many others… He saw we were looking for a place to settle, a city, and I thought of Faith City… as we cried out to God He gave us a place (Faith City) where we can be healed, fixed, and flourish. A place where we can find connection with others, find a family, find the love of God… We found our place to settle in and develop in our full purpose… A place where we feel acceptance, a place to grow and glow… our city…

“Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men, for he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.”

Got a craving? Let Him fill it with good things. Good things like good friends; good brothers and sisters in Christ; good health; peace and joy and fellowship with God our Maker…
