Sing, O Barren, Sing

Sing, O barren, sing -Isa 54:1
Fear not, for you will not be put to shame -Isa 54:4
You will be reestablished when I vindicate you -Isa 54:14
You will not be afraid
Whoever tries to challenge you will be defeated
No weapon that is formed against you will prosper. -Isa 54:17

Sing, O barren, sing
Sing to the well
Draw water from the well, with joy!

Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; For the LORD GOD is my strength and song, And He has become my deliverer. Therefore with joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. -Isa 12:2-3

… I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert … I provide water in the desert and streams in the wasteland, to give drink to My people, My chosen, the people I formed for Myself that they may proclaim My praise. -Isa 43:19-21


The ransomed of the LORD will return. They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads. Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away. -Isa 35:10


Spring up, O well! Sing to it!
The well, which the leaders sank, which the nobles of the people dug, with the scepter and with their staffs.” And from the wilderness they continued to Mattanah, and from Mattanah to Nahaliel, and from Nahaliel to Bamoth, and from Bamoth to the valley that is in the land of Moab, at the top of Pisgah which overlooks the wasteland. -Num 21:17-20

Word Study

From Netbible Num 21:19-20
Mattanah[04980] = “gift of Jehovah”

Nahaliel[05160] = “torrents{gush, rush, flow} of God”

Bamoth[01120] = “high places” or “great high place”

Pisgah[06449] = “cleft”

Jeshimon[03452] = “waste, wilderness, desert, desolate place”

Sing, O barren, sing
Sing to the well
Draw water from the well, with joy
Be lifted from the depths to the heights
-Hab 3:17-19
Placed in the cleft
See the streams in the desert burst forth.

From In the Cleft

Drink from the river of delight
The fountain of life
Sing for joy
In the shadow of His wings
An everlasting crown
In the cleft of the Rock
The desert rose blooms
The dove sings.

-Ps 91:1-2; Isa 32:2; Ps 36:7-9; Ps 63:7-8; Isa 35:1,6,10; Song 2:14

    Dear Karen

    Reading your sharing of God’s Word in recent months is like taking capsules of love as supplements to strengthen my spirit & uplift my soul!

    Sorry for my shallowness, can you enlighten me on “In the cleft of the Rock, desert rose blooms”? Where can I find specific verses describing the cleft & the desert rose? How can I see these depictions my life?

    Looking forward to your word of wisdom & inspiration!

    Some of the scriptures are listed right below where it says the dove sings — you should be able to click there and go to an online bible.

    The first place I noticed the cleft is in Ex 33:21-22 — use the link below and check out the cross ref too — you’ll see that the cleft is the secret place.

    🙂 It’s also the place yhe dove sings — Song 2:14.

    Here is an interesting discussion of the desert rose in Song 2 and Isaiah 35:1


    I think these passages show that to experience this — you need to spend time with the Lord in the cleft of the Rock of Chirst — in the secret place.

    Spend time praying and reading the bible — ask our Lord Jesus Christ to speak to you
    He will.

    You might also try journaling — write down any scripture that seems to ‘jump’ off the page.

    Lord Jesus I ask that You open Your word for Amicable, let Amicable hear You speak from the secret place, the cleft of the Rock of Christ and know the joy of Your presence. I ask this in Your name, our Lord Jesus Chrsit. Amen.

    Psalms 119:130
    Break open your words, let the light shine out, let ordinary people see the meaning.

    Dear Karen

    Thanks so much for your reply & prayer over me!

    I pitched my tent at Exodus 33 & waltzed to Songs 2 yesterday & am still so radiant today being enveloped in GOD’s glory & goodness!

    Yesterday, I felt my name adopted a change from Amicable to Audacious, being emboldened to ask the Lord for anything, seeking His Goodness & knowing His Glory would find me!

    Sing O barren Sing!

    Flood the dry ground
    The desert blooms
    Against all odds
    The rose unfolds with His reign
    Sweet fragrance of life
    Sweet fragrance of CHRIST!

    Sing O barren Sing!

    Know the gift and who speaks of the gift. Ask of Him and
    he will give the gift of living water that becomes in you
    a well that springs up to eternal life. He will overwhelm
    the well and pour out on thirsty ground. Dry, thristy and
    parched people are asking for your gift. Hug a truth and
    then give it away with grace and love. Release the
    captive with the currents. Cry out with the birth. Move
    into the cleansed water spout. Upward destiny destroys
    the unequal yoke of oppresion. Streams stir you. Rivers
    of direction will change the ditch into a canyon of
    creativity. You can not curse a blessing because the
    Blessing took the curse from you. His fire is in the
    dust. You are formed with love. The desert blooms with
    the reign.

    Impossibility (Isaiah 54)

    Are you waiting on promises from God to be fulfilled? Does fulfillment to be out of your reach?

    In Isa 54:1-3 God says to His people,

    ‘Sing, O barren woman, you who never bore a child; burst into song, shout for joy, you who were never in labor…

    Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes. For you will spread out to the right and to the left; your descendants will dispossess nations and settle in their desolate cities.’

    In the face of barrenness and impossibility, sing! Sing a song that celebrates the fulfillment of God’s promise. Don’t stop there, prepare and make room for His answers.


    When Singing Is The Hardest Thing You Can Do

    Sometimes singing a song of praise can be the hardest thing to do. It helps to remember that even when Jesus faced the cross, He was able to sing praises to God.

    Mark records of that night,

    ‘When they had sang a hymn, they went out to the Mount Of Olives.’ (Mark 14:26).
