Warm desert breezes mingled with the fragrance of citrus blossoms. Normally, I would be standing in our yard inhaling the luxurious scent from our orange and lemon trees but this year, the heat is driving me indoors, robbing me of a springtime joy.
My spiritual life mirrored this perplexity in nature as a time of rejoicing in the Lord was clipped by the rising temps in my surrounding circumstances. Evil was making its move to rob me of the joy the Lord came to deliver–just like the delicious scent of our citrus blossoms.
Then, today, a song began drifting through my mind returning me to the early days of my walk with the Lord. I looked it up and the words washed comfort and peace over me like the waters rippling over bridges in our desert oasis of Sabino Canyon. Yes, “God will Make a Way,” written by Don Moen filled my heart and senses and confirmed the word I had read in John 17.
Jesus is praying to His Father for His disciples and us: “My prayer is not that you tkae them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one.” John 17:15
I so desperately needed to see that the enemy of my soul was taunting me with circumstances to steal away the joy given to me by Jesus. In Him and His word, I once again felt peace wash over me.
