Hi dearly beloved,
Sorry i've been inactive for quite awhile. The past few weeks i have been distracted by work and other things which pull my time away from the Lord in these wee hours of the night.
I've been feeling drained lately from being kept awake at night by my darling baby. It's alright you know. Part of being parents. My wife goes through the same thing and it's tougher for her 'cos she's the one actually feeding baby. Through it all, daily, physically i feel really tired. But i realised something happening in me. I started praying in tongues more frequently lately. It's amazing after those few minutes, I feel truly refreshed! He truly is my refreshing.
:37 And in the last day of the great feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.
:38 He who believes on Me, as the Scripture has said, "Out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water."
:39 (But He spoke this about the Spirit, which they who believed on Him should receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.)
Jesus spoke about this refreshment of the Holy Spirit. Those who listened to Him during that feast could not enjoy this drink. But now we can!
It amazes me that no matter how tired or moody or lethargic i feel, whenever i speak about Jesus to someone, i always feel so awake and alert during and after!
Jesus saved us from many things. He also saved us from our tiredness, lethargy and emotional down times.
Jesus is saying, "Use Me!" If all that He has done and gone through for us can't even give us our energy back in our daily lives, then i think we have not seen the revelation of His finished work and how complete it is.
Thank you my Yeshua! You have given me the best isotonic drink ever!
God bless one and all and have a blessed Sunday!
