DEHYDRATED?

Isaiah 58

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
