Product Description

Product Description

In a barren wilderness, L. B. Cowman long ago discovered a fountain that sustained her, and she shared it with the world, Streams in the Desert ® -- her collection of prayerful meditations, Christian writings, and God's written promises--has become one of the most dearly loved, best-selling devotionals of all time since its first publication in 1925. Filled with insight into the richness of God's provision and the purpose of His plan, this enduring classic has encouraged and inspired generations of Christians. I heard the flow of hidden springs; before me palms rose green and fair; The birds were singing; all the air was filled and stirred with angels' wings. Now James Reimann, editor of the highly acclaimed updated edition of My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers, again brings us the wisdom of the past in the language of today, by introducing this updated edition of Streams in the Desert. With fresh, contemporary wording and precise NIV text, the timeless message of the original flows unhindered through these pages, lending guidance and hope to a new generation of believers. We never know where God has hidden His streams. We see a large stone and have no idea that it covers the source of a spring. We see a rocky areas and never imagine that it is hiding a fountain. God leads me into hard and difficult places, and it is there I realize I am where eternal streams abide. Day by day, Streams in the Desert will lead you from life's dry desolate places to the waters of the River of Life -- and beyond, to their very Source.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic and deep 17 Jun. 2005
By Ginan Tonic VINE VOICE
Format:Roughcut
Streams in the Desert is a wonderfully rich book of daily readings, taken from scripture texts, hymns, poems and the writings of many different Christian authors.
What they all have in common is their depth. These are not light one-line thoughts, they are the wisdom of people who have lived lives of suffering, difficulty and pain and yet have found a way of understanding and knowing God better in them all. This is a wonderfully encouraging and refreshing book, not offering easy answers but faith and perseverance through the rough times.
It truly does amount to "Streams in the Desert." Drink from it and learn from people who have stood where you are and have come out the other side wiser, humbler and knowing their God more closely and more deeply. I heartily commend it to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars GOD BLESS 25 Sept. 2004
Format:Leather Bound
I bought Streams in the Desert in August 2004 and I will be reading and praying with this book for the rest of my life.
I have been a Christian since I was born and Streams in the Desert fills my heart with love and peace. The book opens my heart to how much I love God more and more each day.
Life is a challenge and has its ups and downs. Believe in God, Jesus and Mary and life becomes easier.
Streams in the Desert is a beautiful book about God and how much God loves us with all his heart.
God Bless

5.0 out of 5 stars streams in the desert 25 Nov. 2010
Format:Hardcover
I was recommended to read this book by a Chinese Catholic Priest in Singapore where my Fiance's ashes are interred. Apart from the beautiful book cover it is an inspiring read. It is a collection of meditations on things spiritual,written by a Missionary's wife when they lived in China in the 1800's. It is based on the Christian Gospels and is set up like a diary with a set of readings for each day,usually around some theme. Mrs. Cowman uses a range of writings by many wise people to explore the topics. The way these are put together gives deep meaning and help you reflect on life. Although based on Christian teaching they nonetheless will have meaning and be of benefit to anyone,since they deal with universal problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best devotional ever. 24 Feb. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have been reading this book every day for 5 years and I still get blessed by Gods word and encouragement from saints of old every single time I read it. God has used this book to teach me and lead me daily. His true and pure and Faithful love never ever fails me.
It teaches about how God works through every situation and uses hardship in life to refine and shape us. God is good and this book will change your life as you use it as a study tool to get into Gods word.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bit old fashioned for me 11 Aug. 2012
By Amanda
Format:Kindle Edition
Lovely words and lovely bible verses, but very much something of a time gone by.

As someone who has suffered on and off with depression, I thought this book might be a good one to help me through. Sadly, I didn't find it lifted me while there and brings me down when I'm not in that place.

I'm sure for some this is a wonderful resource, but that someone isn't me.
