“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.”
There’s something so romantic about windmills. The gentle turn of their blades is like a dance on the picturesque plains swaying with fresh life... a symbol of simplicity and goodness.
As I have reflected on the beauty of a windmill, I have come to a deeper understanding that the windmill has been central to survival of the farm for centuries. It’s basic purpose is to harvest the power of the wind in order to keep life-giving water flowing to those in need. The wind gives life as it draws out the earth’s refreshment. It’s a perfect and beautiful design.
What a picture of how God works in our lives! Not only does the Lord bless us with the abundant life through a his Son Jesus, but He is he very source by which it is provided! God’s perfect power rushes down and pierces through the gritty earth to supply us with all that we need to be cleansed and refreshed by the Living Water. Let the power of His grace wash over you today!
