THE LIVING WATER
Lord you have spoken so clear to me today!! :) I stay amazed at you! All I can say is WOW!!
God knows I am such a visual learner...and simple minded at times.. and today I was awaken by His presence.
He spoke to me and led me into the kitchen. He had me grab a glass from the cabinet and place it in the empty sink under the faucet. He said "Angela you see this vessel is empty?" "Yes Lord" "Its not being used for its purpose?" "Yes Lord." Then He said to me "turn on the faucet..." I didn't even question.. but usually I am always asking "WHY?" but today was different with my free will I "obeyed" and turned it on.
I began to weep because you see the cup was empty, it was dry inside and out.. UNTIL the faucet of water poured itself into the cup filling it up til overflowing getting every thing around it wet! I was so astounded at what I was seeing..it was so simple yet sooooo profound!!
I noticed that the only thing moving at this point was the water... the vessel was "still" allowing the water to fill it up.. it was "dead" the only thing it was doing was being still for the Water to fill it up.
Now.. I hear the Father say to me..."Pick up the vessel" I began to cry even more as I reach for the cup...There is no where getting around being splattered or touched by the water...The closer and closer my hand gets to the cup.... my hand gets WET!!! Then as I am seeing this I hear the Lord ask me... "What is moving?" With tears... I see the only thing moving at this point is the WATER... The cup is still.. and the closer I get to the cup... ITS NOT THE CUP that is touching me.. ITS THE WATER!!!!
THANK YOU LORD for THIS VISUAL!!! IF WE want to be a TRUE EFFECTIVE WITNESS for the KINGDOM.....and IF we want others to be TOUCHED by the LIVING WATER when they get CLOSE TO US... we must allow HIM TO FILL US UP.. WE MUST STAY UNDER THE FAUCET of the HOLY SPIRIT.. (THE WORD)
"As the hart pants after the water brooks, so pants my soul after you, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?" -Psalms 42:1-2
We can NOT be an effect for Him if we don't turn on the faucet..(OPEN UP THE WORD) I ask you friend.... TRY IT... . I know it seems silly...... but I ask you to do it.. and let Him speak to you today!! :)
Love you all.. and remember IF YOUR BREATHING.. YOU CAN STILL BE USED BY THE PRECIOUS LIVING WATER!!!!!!!!!!! :D HALLELUJAH!!!!
