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.’”The result of seeking Him first helps us with everything we need to do. Click To Tweet
