Pools of Refreshing

John 5:2, 4 (TPT) Inside the city near the Sheep Gate there is a pool called in Aramaic, The House of Loving Kindness… an angel of God would periodically descend into the pool to stir the waters, and the first one who stepped into the pool after the waters swirled would instantly be healed.

Beloved, step into the pools of refreshing and find healing and rest for your soul. It is vital to stay soft and supple, for if you become dry and brittle it is far easier for you to be damaged or break. Make the time to pause. Rest and refreshing is not “doing nothing,” it is allowing you the time and space you need to stay healthy, alive, and vital. 

Resist the urge to strive or “power through.” You are important enough to pause for, precious enough to tend to, and loved enough to be taken care of. So love yourself, even if at first you only do it because I love you. You are worth it. 

Matthew 9:17 (TPT) And who would pour fresh, new wine into an old wineskin? Eventually the wine will ferment and make the wineskin burst, losing everything—the wine is spilled and the wineskin ruined. Instead, new wine is always poured into a new wineskin so that both are preserved.”

Let Your Roots Go Deep

Psalm 84:2 (TPT) …When I’m near you my heart and my soul will sing and worship with my joyful songs of you, my true source and spring of life!

Beloved, I AM the vine and you are the branches. I AM your source of life, and apart from Me you cannot flourish. So let your roots go deep, and satisfy your thirst. Feed on Me and on My Word – allow Me to sustain you and bring increase.

Rejoice in the life I give you, for even in the hardships there is beauty – you have but to look to see My hand at work. I AM ever working for your benefit, and for the Kingdom. Trust Me, and bring forth praise. Continue reading “Let Your Roots Go Deep”

Be a Vessel of Life

John 7:37-38 (TPT) Then on the most important day of the feast, the last day, Jesus stood and shouted out to the crowds— “All you thirsty ones, come to me! Come to me and drink! Believe in me so that rivers of living water will burst out from within you, flowing  from your innermost being, just like the Scripture says!”

Beloved, once you truly believe in Me, the fruit of that is self-evident and cannot be restrained. My living water – of which you have partaken – should flow forth from you. As you stand – yielded – and receive from Me, you cannot help but allow it to flow through and burst forth. My life in you cannot be contained, for it is abundant.

So receive My flow that you might be cleansed and made whole. Receive My flow that you might have life, and have it more abundantly. Beloved, receive My flow that you might be a vessel of life to a parched world in need of refreshing. So receive and flow. Receive and flow.

The River of God is for You

Revelation 22:1 (TPT) Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, flowing with water clear as crystal, continuously pouring out from the throne of God and of the Lamb.

Beloved, My flow is pure. No pollution or debris mar these waters. No sin or unrighteous judgment taint the joyous love flowing from My heart, or the refreshing waters from My throne. So receive, and drink deeply that you might be quenched and renewed.

For I AM the fountain of life, and those who drink of Me will be satisfied. My life sustains. My water restores. In Me all things are made new. So look to My throne, and trust in the Lamb. The river of God is for you.

The River of God

Ezekiel 47:8-9 (VOICE) The Man:  This river flows eastward and runs down into the Jordan Valley to the place where it flows into the Dead Sea. The moment it meets the sea, the salty water becomes fresh. Swarms of creatures will flourish wherever this river flows. Schools of fish will swim through currents of fresh water, for wherever this water flows everything will come alive!

Beloved, the river of God brings healing to whatever it touches. So stay in the river. Remain in My healing flow. For I AM YHVH Rapha – the Lord your healer, so look to Me to heal and to restore that you in turn may share My refreshing flow with others.

Come alive! Just as Lazarus was called forth from the grave, so I have called you from the death and bondage of sin into My glorious, life-giving light. Be embraced by My love, saturated by My Spirit, and be made whole.

Be Intentional and Consistent in Your Choice

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.

Prepare to Receive

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.

Be Saturated

Isaiah 58:11 (VOICE) The Eternal One will never leave you; He will lead you in the way that you should go. When you feel dried up and worthless, God will nourish you and give you strength. And you will grow like a garden lovingly tended; you will be like a spring whose water never runs out.

Beloved, let My love wash over you and soothe the broken, dry places. Be saturated in My presence – no longer dry and brittle, but supple and flexible. I AM the potter and you are the clay. When clay becomes dry and difficult to work with, water makes it pliable and easy to mold. 

So be saturated by My Spirit. Become fully yielded in My hands. In the same way dried clay can be broken, but supple, wet clay simply adapts and changes shape, so I have created you to flourish regardless of what comes your way. Saturate yourself in Me, and be whole. Continue reading “Be Saturated”

Drown in My Depths

Psalm 42:7 (VOICE) In the roar of Your waterfalls, ancient depths surge, calling out to the deep. All Your waves break over me; am I drowning? 

Beloved, is there such a thing as too much of My love? Come drown in My depths. Be lulled in the flow of My Spirit. Be invigorated – My breath like bubbles against your skin. I AM El Shammah – the God who is present, and I AM always with you. 

Press into Me and seek out the deep mysteries, for I will not withhold wisdom from those who ask. Be drawn deeper still, for there is no end to Me. Revelation upon revelation. Mercy beyond mercy. Love, endless love. Like a pool of swirling waves, happily drown in the pleasure of knowing and being known.

Psalm 42:1, 5, 7-8 (VOICE) My soul is dry and thirsts for You, True God, as a deer thirsts for water. Why am I so overwrought? Why am I so disturbed? Why can’t I just hope in God? Despite all my emotions, I will believe and praise the One who saves me and is my life. In the roar of Your waterfalls, ancient depths surge, calling out to the deep. All Your waves break over me; am I drowning? Yet in the light of day, the Eternal shows me His love. When night settles in and all is dark, He keeps me company— His soothing song, a prayerful melody to the True God of my life.

El Chai (the Living God)

Zechariah 10:1 (VOICE) Pray to the Eternal, asking for rain in the spring; He is the One bringing the storm clouds. He fills them with heavy rain, showers of rain for the plants of the field for everyone.

Beloved, pray for rain. Pray for Me to swing wide the floodgates of heaven and saturate My people and all the earth. I AM the One who brings refreshing in the dry, desert seasons. I AM El Chai, the Living God, and I bring life and bring it in abundance. 

In My great mercy, I pour out My rain on all – the righteous and the unrighteous. I will not withhold My life-giving flow, nor deny anyone the opportunity to grow. Be sure to use wisely the blessing that I give that increase can be given all the more.  Continue reading “El Chai (the Living God)”
