John 4:15 (VOICE) Woman: Please, Sir, give me some of this water, so I’ll never be thirsty and never again have to make the trip to this well.
Beloved, it is not enough that I make Myself available to you. It is not enough that I give you My Word as bread to sustain and the water of My Spirit to refresh. You must choose Me. You must choose the things of Me. So be intentional and consistent in your choice.
For if you desire to pour out, you must have reserves to draw from. If you move in your own strength, you will quickly find yourself depleted. But if you stand as a conduit – arms raised to receive, and then allow Me to flow through you, then and only then will you move in true power.
John 4:13-14 (VOICE) Jesus: Drink this water, and your thirst is quenched only for a moment. You must return to this well again and again. I offer water that will become a wellspring within you that gives life throughout eternity. You will never be thirsty again.
Beloved, I AM the sustainer. I bring life, and I bring it in abundance. Only I can truly satisfy. So look to Me, and put your hope in Me. For I AM loving, and I AM good. I AM worthy of your trust.
Rely on Me. Be sustained by Me. Resist the urge to look to substitutes, for they will not quench your thirst nor sate your hunger – only I AM able. So put your whole heart in My hands, and trust Me to be all you need.
John 4:10 (VOICE) Jesus: You don’t know the gift of God or who is asking you for a drink of this water from Jacob’s well. Because if you did, you would have asked Him for something greater; and He would have given you the living water.
Beloved, be intentional to ask Me, and then be ready to receive. For I do not withhold My Spirit from My children, nor hold back My very presence when I am sought. From My abundance I pour forth, so prepare to receive.
Drink and drink deeply from the well of My love. Be satisfied – quenched, and indeed saturated to overflowing that you might be equipped to pour out when it is time. For I have anointed you, and I have called you, so allow that living stream to flow forth bringing life to those around you. Freely you have received, so freely give.
James 4:7 (CJB) Therefore, submit to God. Moreover, take a stand against the Adversary, and he will flee from you.
Beloved, keep your focus on Me. Resist the wiles of the enemy, and he will give up on you and cede your victory. You don’t need to yell and scream at him or shake your fist, instead simply remain focused on Me.
For I AM the power, and you find your strength in Me. So trust Me to bring the breakthrough, for when I set you free, you are unquestionably free. Revel in that freedom and fix your gaze on Me.
John 8:36 (NKJV) Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.
John 8:36 (TPT) So if the Son sets you free from sin, then become a true son and be unquestionably free!

John 14:15 (NKJV) “If you love Me, keep My commandments.
Beloved, the greatest obedience comes from a joyful heart, yielded in love. It isn’t trying to earn anything – not favor or salvation (as though that could be earned), but rather it is given freely, as a gift – unreservedly and with joy.
When a child is young, a good parent teaches them not to lie; and if the child does lie, there are consequences. But when the child becomes an adult, no longer can the parent compel them to obedience or bring punishment for transgression. But what a sweet gift is the adult’s adherence to the parent’s precept. Truly, it is the sweet aroma of love. Just as it is when you choose to make My ways your own, and do so joyfully.

James 1:5 (NET) But if anyone is deficient in wisdom, he should ask God, who gives to all generously and without reprimand, and it will be given to him.
Beloved, I will not rebuke you for an earnest request, though I may not choose to answer in the way you hoped. But trust Me to hear and respond in love, for My heart toward you is good and My love for you is unshakable.
So refuse to feel overwhelmed by what you don’t understand, and instead ask My Holy Spirit – the teacher of all things – to show you what you need to know. For I love to share with My children, and a listening heart I will not deny. Continue reading “Listening Heart”
John 14:26 (CSB) “But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and remind you of everything I have told you.
Beloved, refuse to be overwhelmed by what you read in My Word. For My Holy Spirit was given to you and is fully able to bring revelation. All people are without understanding until revelation comes, and you can spend the rest of your life plumbing the depths of My Word.
So seek, beloved. And as you seek, remember to ask. Ask for wisdom. Ask for insight. Ask for understanding. Ask for how to implement what you’ve read and understood. Trust My Holy Spirit to lead you righty. But seek His counsel, for that is why He was given to you.
Revelation 7:17 (TPT) For the Lamb at the center of the throne continuously shepherds them unto life—guiding them to the everlasting fountains of the water of life. And God will wipe from their eyes every last tear!”
Beloved, though in life you will encounter hardships, be encouraged that in eternity there will be peace that far exceeds any earthly trial. So keep your heart fixed on your ultimate home, and let its promise whisper sweetly through any current afflictions.
I AM the way and the truth – in Me you find life, so keep your eyes fixed and let nothing steal your gaze. Find peace in Me – here and now, bring heaven to earth. Rest in your eternal promise even today. For the promised Kingdom is within you, and even as you await its fullness, press into My rest that abides there. Continue reading “Promised Kingdom”
John 15:9 (TPT) I love each of you with the same love that the Father loves me. You must continually let my love nourish your hearts.
Beloved, abide in My love, and allow it to nourish and sustain you. It is endless, for I AM El Olam – the everlasting God, and I AM Olam Zerowa – the everlasting arms. Reach for Me, for I AM willing to hold you close for eternity.
Be filled by My love. Draw from My endless supply that you might have a reserve from which to pour out. For the world is filled with those in desperate need of love – true, unconditional, life-giving love. So be a willing vessel, and saturate yourself in Me. Be intentional to stay full to overflowing that you might be ready to share whenever the opportunity arises. Reflect My heart with joy.
Psalm 136:12-13 (VOICE) With fierce strength, a mighty hand, and an outstretched arm, for His faithful love lasts forever. To Him who split the Red Sea in two and made a path between the divided waters, for His faithful love lasts forever.
Beloved, for those who choose to be on My side, My faithfulness knows no bounds. So choose Me, and align with Me, and watch My steadfast love manifest. Listen for My voice – whether thunderous or whispered, and be yielding and obey.
I AM the rock of strength for you to lean on, your firm foundation – the unchangeable One. Choose Me. And be steadfast in your choice. I AM the eternal One – the giver of life, embrace Me.
John 6:68 (AMP) Simon Peter answered, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You [alone] have the words of eternal life [you are our only hope].
