-*Application* Do you observe the powerful works of the LORD in your life to preserve and refine you? He desires to make you His possession and the sanctuary of the Holy Spirit by the fulfilling of His New Covenant (Deuteronomy 4:20, Romans 8:9, 11, 2 Corinthians 3:6, Colossians 1:27, Titus 2:14, 1 Peter 2:9). Notice the joy when God comes into a situation and takes control. His sustaining power is always sufficient. Even a rock can turn into a pool of water to quench thirst and add life for His people (Psalm 114:8).
