Then the angel showed me a river with the water of life, clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb. It flowed down the center of the main street. On each side of the river grew a tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, with a fresh crop each month. The leaves were used for medicine to heal the nations.
Revelation 22:1–2 nlt

I believe your healing brings about something of the healing of the earth, and I’m certain the healed earth helps to usher in your healing.

Your enemy is the great divider. His most poisonous work takes place at the level of fragmentation, dividing families, churches, and fomenting racial hatred. He uses pain and suffering to create deep divisions within your being. He traumatizes human beings, then separates them from the earth that could bring about their healing. Your life has become cut off from the Garden you were meant to flourish in. Nature heals. God has ordained that in the new earth it is river water that brings you life and leaves that are used for healing.

You will hear nature in full chorus. It will mingle with the laughter, music, and aromas of the feast itself, and you’ll drink it all in, practically swimming in the healing powers of creation, feeling Life permeate every last corner of your being.

What parts of nature do you love? Is it the beach? Your garden? Songbirds? Horses? Let your imagination think about what they will be for you in the next chapter of our Story!
