Blessed be the Name of the Lord, He is worthy to be praise and adore, so we left our holy hand in one accord singing, blessed be the Name O blessed be the Name of the Lord. Spirit of the living God flow afresh on us 2x, Break us and melt us; mold us and fill us, Spirit of the living God flow afresh on me. He is alive, Amen! He is alive, my Jesus is alive, forever, He is alive! Amen!
Father, we thank You for your faithfulness towards us. Thank You for Your preservation O Lord! We are indeed grateful and thankful for Who You are. Blessed be Your Holy Name.
Beloved, blessed are they who made God their God, whose hope do not wither, who trust in God in every situation (2 Cor 4:8-9; Heb 3:14) for the Lord our God will arise and be God indeed to them (1Thess 5:16; 2 Cor 3:5; Jer 15:20).
Beloved, we are at the last lap of our race for the month, we still believing and trusting God for more encounters on the platform of ‘Exceeding Grace’.
We are blessed by our Father whose desire is to make us fruitful despite what we may be experiencing currently but Faithful is our God, He is able to help for us from every side.
He brought salvation to us through the death of His son on the cross, He gave us the Holy Spirit to help our walk in Him. What more can He not do for us. Christ is our living stream, whoever that drinketh the water He gives, will thirst no more. Come, to the fountain that will never run dry; drink to your full and be made whole:
“And it shall come to pass, that every thing that liveth, which moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live.” Ezek. 47:9
The living waters, in the prophet’s vision, flowed into the Dead Sea, and carried life with them, even into that stagnant lake. Where grace goes, spiritual life is the immediate and the everlasting consequence. Grace proceeds sovereignly according to the will of God, even as a river in all its windings follows its own sweet will; and wherever it comes it does not wait for life to come to it, but it creates life by its own quickening flow.
Oh, that it would pour along our streets, and flood our slums! Oh, that it would now come into my house, and rise till every chamber were made to swim with it! Lord, let the living water flow to my family and my friends, and let it not pass me by. I hope I have drunk of it already; but I desire to bathe in it, yea, to swim in it.
O my Saviour, I need life more abundantly. Come to me, I pray thee, till every part of my nature is vividly energetic and intensely active. Living God, I pray thee, fill me with thine own life. I am a poor, dry stick; come and make me so to live that, like Aaron’s rod, I may bud and blossom and bring forth fruit unto thy glory. Quicken me, for the sake of my Lord Jesus. Amen.
Is that also your confession? Are you trusting God for same experience? Then here is more for you:
“Whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst.” John 4:14
He who is a believer in Jesus finds enough in his Lord to satisfy him now, and to content him for evermore. The believer is not the man whose days are weary for want of comfort, and whose nights are long from absence of heart-cheering thought, for he finds in religion such a spring of joy, such a fountain of consolation, that he is content and happy.
Put him in a dungeon and he will find good company; place him in a barren wilderness, he will eat the bread of heaven; drive him away from friendship, he will meet the “friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” Blast all his gourds, and he will find shadow beneath the Rock of Ages; sap the foundation of his earthly hopes, but his heart will still be fixed, trusting in the Lord.
The heart is as insatiable as the grave till Jesus enters it, and then it is a cup full to overflowing. There is such a fulness in Christ that He alone is the believer’s all. The true saint is so completely satisfied with the all-sufficiency of Jesus that he thirsts no more—except it be for deeper draughts of the living fountain.
In that sweet manner, believer, shalt thou thirst; it shall not be a thirst of pain, but of loving desire; thou wilt find it a sweet thing to be panting after a fuller enjoyment of Jesus’ love. One in days of yore said, “I have been sinking my bucket down into the well full often, but now my thirst after Jesus has become so insatiable, that I long to put the well itself to my lips, and drink right on.” Is this the feeling of thine heart now, believer?
Dost thou feel that all thy desires are satisfied in Jesus, and that thou hast no want now, but to know more of Him and to have closer fellowship with Him? Then come continually to the fountain, and take of the water of life freely. Jesus will never think you take too much, but will ever welcome you, saying, “Drink, yea, drink abundantly, O beloved.”
Beloved, Your Father is calling on you to be blessed of Him. Will you heed of this call and come up hither or will you rather sit in the dungeon lamenting of your woes. I will go up thither; drink and be full even as the Lord bid me come. Is that same you?
Remain blessed in the Lord.
