7 Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, and whose hope is in the LORD. 8 For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, which spreads out its roots by the river, and will not fear when heat comes; but its leaf will be green, and will not be anxious in the year of drought, nor will cease from yielding fruit. Jeremiah 17:7-8
I believe I have been on a journey to discover the access I have to a constant flow of living water because of Jesus Christ in me. I’m learning how to drink deeply and stay full with expectation of overflow. The struggles of the past few years have been intense. They came on every front and although most are improving, almost all still remain in some form. Yet through this, the Father, Jesus and Holy Spirit have revealed themselves to me in very deep and real ways. I hope to share my journey of becoming a secret spring because I believe the same invitation is being extended to YOU.
Oh Father in Heaven, thank You for Your great invitation to experience new life in Jesus Christ and drink from the living water that never runs dry. Please show us what that means specifically for each of us. Please open the eyes, ears and hearts of my brothers and sisters to receive all You have for them. Holy Spirit, I ask You to stir our hearts in new ways and partner with us to remove any blockages that may be hindering this flow of living water. Please give us the courage to identify, confess, and turn from them as You lead. I ask for a fresh hunger and thirst for your Word and the ability to discover Your goodness and mercy even in the midst of the heat or drought of trials. May we be refreshed and yield much fruit for Your honor and glory. In Jesus’s name. May it be so.
