Idaho may be known for potatoes; however, the diversity of the landscape is amazing. The state contains scenery resembling the moon, towering mountains, rivers, canyons, waterfalls, hot springs, miles of sagebrush wilderness, ski resorts, sand dunes, deserted gold-rush towns, and ruts marking the trail of wagons from the 1800’s crossing to travel west.
Underneath the eastern Snake River plain is an aquifer covering an area as large as Lake Erie. The water runs silent and undisturbed until it pours out in canyons, waterfalls, and rivers.
Near the town of Hagerman, out of seemingly solid rock, water gushes out in 1000 springs. What couldn’t be seen becomes seen.
There are times God remains silent as we wait for His guidance and His perfect timing on the next steps. Yet underneath, in places unseen, God works.
If you are in a season of silence, hold fast to God’s truth — His living water trickles, flows, squirts, and gushes, remaining constant in the unfailing love of God. In the silence of the world’s troubles, remember God will punish those who do evil. Even in the silence, hold fast to the reality God remains in control, God continues to move, and God will guide and lead through the desert times.
“And the Lord will continually guide you, and satisfy your desire in scorched places, and give strength to your bones; and you will be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water whose waters do not fail.” Jesus said, “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’” ~ Isaiah 58:11 (NASB), John 7:38 (NASB)
