eat.




There are few things as instinctual and natural as when I see my almost 3-week-old son squirm, search and wail for milk, even at all hours of the night. He didn’t have to be taught this. He didn’t have to discipline himself to achieve it.

[From the day he was born, he craved milk.]
                

“As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the Word, that you may grow thereby…” 1 Peter 2:2

I am born again. I am desperate for my Daddy,, and He is so faithful to feed, nourish and sustain me. but just like I can’t force my son to eat, our Father can only give us what we need to grow to the degree that we desire it and put ourselves in the position to receive it.

Our passion, love and desire for the Word, His voice and His presence should be just as natural when we are born again and adopted as His children. We should be desperate. We should crave it from the moment we wake up. We should be in need of it continuously throughout the day,, and even through the night.

So I ask you the same question that He is asking me,,

[[What does your hunger look like?]]

                                    our spiritual lives depend on it.

there is no "dry season".



“The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them,
And the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose;
It shall blossom abundantly and rejoice,
Even with joy and singing…


For waters shall burst forth in the wilderness,
And streams in the desert.
The parched ground shall become a pool,
And the thirsty land springs of water…”
                                                      Isaiah 35:1; 6-7


[[Abundance replaces lack]]
What was dry and useless before becomes well watered and fruitful.


If any man thirst, let him come unto Me, and drink. He that believeth on Me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” John 7:37b-38

         River {potamos}-  one that constantly flows from a fountain; figuratively, the greatest abundance
           
from the greek word {
pinĊ}-to drink; figuratively, to receive into the soul what serves to refresh strengthen, nourish it unto life eternal


I am the
Fountain of Living Waters.
Jeremiah 18:13.


[abide in Me.drink deeply.walk in My abundance instead of your lack]

be reminded.





“I am in control of your life”.

            when you prayed for Me to take your life, offering yourself up to Me, surrendering yourself fully,, I took those prayers seriously.

every prayer for My will to be done, for My direction, clarity and wisdom to be given, for Me to go before you,, they were not taken lightly.

when that exchange of your life for Mine was made, it was real.

I am sovereign. I move on your behalf. I have led you. I am leading you. I will continue to lead you. I have you on the path that I have chosen for you. I am over all your circumstances. nothing happens in your life outside of My doing or allowance.


believe it.
receive the peace I give.




“As for God, His way is perfect…”  Psalm 18:30
