“And the LORD will guide you continually and satisfy your desire in scorched places and make your bones strong; and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.”
Happy Tuesday Everyone, I hope the start of the week has been a blessing to all of you. I want to say thank you to all of you that have taken the time to follow, like and comment on this blog. I really appreciate it; I hope that what God’s gives me to write is able to help you out. Last night I was reading the bible and this verse caught my attention; it brought to mind the story of the Samaritan woman with Jesus at the well.
Before I go deeper into the message of today; I will tell you something that happened this past sunday that ties to what I will be speaking today. God spoke and confirmed this message through sunday’s service at church and later in that day. It was during worship time that the presence of the Holy Spirit descended; you could feel this peace and joy at church. While we were singing the songs the Holy Spirit touched lives and God spoke through prophecy that whoever was dried spiritually would be renewed at that moment.
For a couples of weeks I have not felt the same; my life have felt like leather when it’s not preserved and all dried up. This couple of weeks have been an emotional rollercoaster to say the least. I needed this renewing that God was giving out; and I received it and it was an amazing experience. The was the first confirmation now the second one was given by my son. He on sunday night told me that he did not want to ride the bus in the mornings that he wanted me to drop him off at school which shocked me to say when he asked me this; he pretty independent for a seven year old. What he really was asking me was for attention that he desperately needs;. I try my best to give him all the attention that I can give him but when you work and some days are more busy than others all that you want to do is rest. And the third was yesterday as I was reading in the book of John; God brought to my attention this verse.
Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again,14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
On verse 58 of the book of Isaiah; God was speaking to his people about their fasting instead a fast from the Lord. I will not get into that we will leave that be for another blog post. One phrase that caught my attention was the word “Scorched” the meaning behind this word its to dry out or whither. When Jesus met the Samaritan woman he asked for a drink of water but it was not him that desperately needed the water but it was the woman who needed of what Jesus was giving out that was the promise of the Holy Spirit.
Many of us we are almost dry out from trials and life, and most of us are looking for something that you won’t find outside of God. Your thirst, your need for something that you are desperately looking for in the wrong places will not satisfy you. Only through Jesus Christ will you gain the fulfillment and satisfaction that you desperately are seeking. The Holy Spirit will be a spring of water inside of you that never lets you dry out.
37 On the last day, the climax of the festival, Jesus stood and shouted to the crowds, “Anyone who is thirsty may come to me!38 Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.’”
My weeks of mourning and daily life had brought me to an almost dry out place but the Holy Spirit renewed me from the inside out. It’s worth drinking from this water.
P.S. Leave a comment down below telling me, what things do you do to not get to this state a lot of time.? I try my best to read more often my bible, pray sometimes a bit more, write on my journal or just wait it out.
