Do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven. Luke 10:20

Today, Chambers talks about how it is not important to know and understand when you are being of great use to the Lord.  In fact, it is by God's mercy that we don't know.  Otherwise...we tend to focus on our spiritual accomplishments, rather than simply walk with the Lord. Knowing can be detrimental to your walk. I believe it is true.  We humans are a prideful sort.  I can picture myself saying, "Yeah me!  Look what I did!"

If you keep your relationship right with Him, then regardless of your circumstances or whoever you encounter each day, He will continue to pour “rivers of living water” through you (John 7:38). And it is actually by His mercy that He does not let you know it.

It is really so simple...but it seems to evade me.  Just live for Jesus each and every day!  He will do the rest!  He will make rivers of living water flow out of you...and that will effect everyone else around you in a positive way.  I want this.  I really do.

For quite some time I have felt like a desert spiritually.  No more.  I want living water!

  1. It is never more apparent that I need Him than when my hormones are raging...

  2. I have felt distracted and dry for a while too. Lately I have had to remind myself that I am here for a purpose, and am I living out what God has created me for? I know I'm not. :( Much of my time is spent chasing after the wrong things/wasting time. I recently changed my devotion time to early mornings, and it has been really nice. I want rivers of living water to flow out of me too... Lets pray for each other!
