I cannot begin to put in words how GOOOOOOOD our God is!!! He is a LOVING FATHER! He is the BEST! He knows what we need when we need it.
I wrote this in my journal yesterday,
August 21, 2020:
“Early rise 2ish, yesterday and today.
I am drained.
I need to be replenished with sleep and the Word.
I need order.
I need balance.
I need sleep.
Father: I ask for order, balance and empowerment to do all that I need to do for the kingdom and You and for my home. Amen and Thank You!”
This was scripture at bottom of my journal:
The LORD is my strength and my song; he has given me victory. This is my God, and I will praise him–my father’s God, and I will exalt him! – Exodus 15:2 NLT
Even though I had been spending a lot of time reading and in God’s word, I was thirsty. I felt spiritually dehydrated. The Lord empowered me. The Lord poured into me. I was in His Word from around 2 am until I put it down and fell asleep in the recliner around 9 pm. It was a day of replenishment. It was like standing under a waterfall and letting it cascade all over your body.
Today, I awoke around 3 am refreshed. “Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great [is] Your faithfulness. “- Lamentations 3:23 NKJV. The Holy Spirit continued to shower with me with the Living Word. This was not a “Psalms Shower.” He led me through Deuteronomy, 1 Kings, Hosea, Joel, and landed me to Isaiah 58. It wasn’t until I was sharing with a friend about the Holy Ghost “rabbit trail” that I realized what was right in front of me. It was THE DIRECT ANSWER to my prayer in Isaiah 58:
8Then your light shall break forth like the morning,
Your healing shall spring forth speedily,
And your righteousness shall go before you;
The glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard.
9 Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer;
You shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.’…
11 The LORD will guide you continually,
And satisfy your soul in drought,
And strengthen your bones;
You shall be like a watered garden,
And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.
12 Those from among you
Shall build the old waste places;
You shall raise up the foundations of many generations;
And you shall be called the
Repairer of the Breach,
The Restorer of Streets to Dwell In.
13 “If you turn away your foot from the Sabbath,
From doing your pleasure on My holy day,
And call the Sabbath a delight,
The holy day of the LORD honorable,
And shall honor Him, not doing your own ways,
Nor finding your own pleasure,
Nor speaking your own words,
14 Then you shall delight yourself in the LORD;
And I will cause you to ride on the high hills of the earth,
And feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father.
The mouth of the LORD has spoken.”
I enCOURAGE you to seek the Lord if you are dehydrated and even, if you are not. He is just a call away. His will is to fill.
“Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. ” – Luke 6:38 NKJV
