LIVING WATER ~
John 7:37-39 (NIV)
On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink.
38 Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them."
39 By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.
MY DECISION ~
Rivers of living water will flow
Throughout life, we find ourselves searching for things. Wanting greater things in life and the struggle between time, family, friends and activities in life. You will find me on Sunday at my Church ~ Hillside Christian Church in Napa. I want a deeper relationship with God and it stirs my faith weekly. I also enjoy meeting new people and sharing life with those I know.
I've seen miracles and I know the power of God. I find that people contact me when they want prayer and I am so ready to pray. I also know who to ask when I need someone to join with me in prayer. God connects lives for purpose. I don't always have all the answers, but I sure know to pray. God is able to handle our todays and give peace in all seasons. Someone asked me how do you pray? I just talk to God like I'm talking to you now.
How about you? What you are searching for today and need the power of God to handle? We can't handle everything and God's power is real. Turning your thoughts to him is powerful. People turn away from God for many reasons. There are those who turn to God when they run out of their own thoughts. God's power is real and able to help you through anything in life. Hard stuff happens to each of us. God has no favorites in life, we are all created equal in his eyes. There are ups in life and downs in life, but I choose to see blessings daily. I wasn't always this way because I didn't have the relationship in God that I do today. It takes time and pressing into knowing him. Anything relationship takes time.
Today, as it is raining in our city and the skies are dark, I feel the joy of the Lord in my soul. I see how far God has brought my life and I still have desires inside my heart. Psalm 37:4 ~ Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
LEAD ME TO WATER ~ MY DESIRES
Just like the horse is lead to water, but you can not force him to drink. God leads us to his holy spirit, but it's our choice to drink from his word (Bible). A changed lifestyle is up to you. Don't settle in life for less than the best, because God created us for greater. The bible says:
1 John 4:4 (NIV)You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
