DEVOTION: “When we are clothed with the Spirit, our human depravity is covered and everything that is contrary to the mind of God is destroyed. God must have people for Himself who are being clothed with a heavenly habitation, perfectly prepared by the Holy Spirit for the Day of the Lord. “For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitation which is from heaven (2 Cor. 5:2). Was Paul speaking here only about the coming of the Lord? No. Yet this condition of preparedness on earth is related to our heavenly state. The Holy Spirit is coming to take out of the world a church that is the perfect bride. He must find in us perfect yielded-ness, with every desire subjected to Him. He has come to reveal Christ in us so that the glorious flow of the life of God may flow out of us, bringing rivers of living water to the thirsty land.” (Pg 107)
Perfect yielded-ness. We must yield to the Spirit. Yield to the Father. Yield to Jesus. Yet….our hesitation remains. Our human-ness reduces our desire for yielded-ness.
Pray today that in all you do, if nothing else, you are yielded to the Father. To His plans.
When Christ is revealed in us. When we yield to the Father. Life flows out of us. Our life? No. The glorious flow of the life of God.
Why on earth would we want the life of God to flow out of us into others? So that the river of life that flows out of us can we poured out on a thirsty and desert dry land.
We encounter folks in the desert every day. Bring life. Bring living water to them. Each and every person you encounter today will need the glorious flow of the life of God. Every one. There are no exceptions.
Today. The desert awaits. Bring life.
PRAYER: Pray today for the deserts that you will cross. Pray that you will receive and in turn be able to give the river of life to others.
