Unstoppable Flow!

Unstoppable Flow!

As fiery darts come against us to stop us from going forth, the Lord increases His anointing. Whether it is seen or not, the Lord is moving mightily. All we can do is focus on His presence, by faith, and thirst for more. He quenches our thirst as we come to Him and drink. We do so as we fellowship with Him.

When a clamp is placed on a hose it can stop the flow of the water, but it cannot remove its existence. When the restriction is removed, the water comes forth with intensity. Often, it is not until a clamp is removed that we realize there was one. It happens as we go with the flow believing, expecting and resting. As we follow Him, He flows through us. 

We pray for the Holy Spirit to remove the clamps and trust His power is greater than any clamp! We do not look at the clamps; we trust His flowing. His flow is unstoppable! Let’s lay a hold of the reality of the flow of the spirit of Christ in and through us, from glory to glory!

John 7:37-38 “On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, ‘If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’”

Thirsty?

Thirsty?

In the natural, when we are dehydrated, we might not diagnose the need for water; our head, joints, and muscles might hurt… putting the focus on the symptoms instead of the cause. It is similar in the Spirit. When the living waters are not flowing as they should, we must recognize our thirst, our longing for a touch from the Lord. 

Our schedules make it challenging for us to find the necessary time to come to the Lord to receive a refreshing touch, but it is necessary. The result of seeking Him first helps us with everything we need to do. As soon as we notice that we are more in the flesh than the spirit, we should run to Jesus. Our adversary, satan, tempts us to run to other substitutes to fill us. 

By faith, we come to Him and drink, receive all that He is. As He fills us to overflowing, He touches and transforms us, and others through us. In communion, we receive a fresh infilling. The more we drink, the more we desire to drink. We worship, praise, love Him and soak in His presence. As we do, we notice His flow is increased, from glory to glory!

John 7:37-38 “On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, ‘If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’

Flowing Freely

Flowing Freely

We abide in the Lord as we focus on, and commune, with Him. We pray in the spirit and worship Him. Before proceeding in our endeavors, we seek His wisdom and surrender to His leading and empowerment. Our prayer for His anointing to flow in and through us becomes a constant desire, and we guard against the hindrances to His flow.

What quenches the flow of the living waters is self-sufficiency, prideful ways, and trust in ourselves or in others. The Holy Spirit grieves when we ignore Him or His instructions; when we are more loving and dependent on the ways of men than on His. By His grace, He continues to transform us and lead us to seek Him above all.

As the Lord’s presence rests upon us, we rest in Him with joy and peace. In that resting place, His abundant life flows freely. As we abide in the rivers of His glory, the fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit flow freely. To abide is to come to Him and drink. The more we abide, the more rivers of living water flow out of our hearts, from glory to glory!

John 7:37-38 On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”

Birthing Stages: Kicking

Birthing Stages: Kicking

We can expect unexpected manifestations of who we are in Christ and His purposes. Because of the reality of Christ in us, all believers carry unknown potential. Just like in a natural pregnancy, the mother becomes encouraged and excited about the birth when her baby kicks. It is the same in our spiritual life.  

For us, the kicking is when we sense things are finally moving; when what we carry feels the most alive. A jump within of joy at the sound of a scripture or a word. An early arising with an expectancy of unknown happenings. Interruptions of shouts of praise in our daily routine. Bursts of glory. 

It’s also when the flesh wars against the spirit and our adversary throws the most fiery darts.  We feel uncomfortable. It is during these trying moments that the spirit moves the most to strengthen us. The more hindrances kick against us, the greater the kick of determination within us. Battles become confirmation of the soon coming manifestation of what God has conceived. No darkness can destroy what Jesus, the Light of the World, breaks forth, from glory to glory! 

John 7:37-38 “On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’ “
