Bill Johnson (January-13-2020) Sermon: Turning Your Weeping Into Springs (Psalm 84:5-6). Inspiring word from Bill to view our lives as a pilgrimage, a journey into discipleship to Christ and an ever-greater hunger for His presence. Even in the difficult seasons, God’s power can cause our tears that fall to the ground to reverse course and become springs to sustain us on our pilgrimage. Quotes: “Psalm 84:6 As they pass through the Valley of Baca, they make it a spring.” Baca means weeping. As they pass through the valley of Baca they make it a spring. This is such a wonderful picture. He says you're on a pilgrimage. You go through the valley of weeping. We all know that life is full of painful circumstances. Here, they're descending into the valley, the challenges to their faith. They come into the valley of Baca but they turn it into a spring. A spring is a life-giving source, something that brings fruitfulness and blessings. This is an unusual picture. How do you take tears that drop to the ground and turn that place on the ground on that's become moist with tears into a life-giving spring? It's this wonderful prophetic picture of those whose hearts are set on His presence.
