He changes the order of nature for the sake of love
Psalm 107:35 -- He turns the desert into pools of water and the parched ground into flowing springs.
Calvin comments on this verse: "For the love that He bears to his Church, He changes the order of nature for their convenience."
God is love. And He is not bound by the natural order of things -- when the stuff of life limits us beyond the intent of His love, He has all power to change... to renew, to redeem and restore. He is not bound by space or time or our natural condition.
The natural order is the desert. But in His love we receive clear, beautiful pools of water. The natural condition is parched ground. But in His Spirit we are refreshed with flowing springs!
