                 I was reading in Psalm 51 1-19 where David ,having been with Bathsheba , was pleading with GOD for a new direction in which to turn in Life. Verses 12-13 state ” A new heart create for me , GOD; renew within me a steadfast spirit. Do not drive me from before your face , nor take from me your Holy Spirit.” GOD is indeed Good!!!

               What David had realized was that his relationship with GOD was the most important aspect of his Life. The prophet Nathan had merely pointed out to David a simple fact which he already knew within his heart. He needed GOD more than anything in Life to lead and guide him in this world and beyond. Glory to our GOD!!!

 

     Brethren , our relationship with GOD is indeed the most important aspect in our Lives!!! It is in fact far more important than anything else which we encounter in our daily walk. More important than family ,friends ,work, wealth or health; our relationship with GOD guides our Earthly existence and places us in our own unique positioning for our Eternal Future. We are not human beings having a Spiritual experience; we are Spiritual beings having a human experience!!! This Life is our beginning, not our end!!! Thank you JESUS!!!!!!!

       We , as Church Age believers , have HIS Holy Spirit to help us get through this Life with more than a passing nod to those around us and an awareness of the world in which we live. We have the Power to move mountains ,heal the sick , raise the dead ,and much ,much more!!! We need only to empty ourselves of self and yield to HIS Will!!! HE will use us accordingly!!! Amen!!!

      ” Restore to me the gladness of your salvation.”

 ” GOD give to me a repentant heart like David!!!”

             Headed to the well!!! I Love you!!!!!!! Mark

Falling Water Creek in early spring

                I was reading in 1 Chronicles 11 15-19 where David , King of Israel , and his country were at war with the Philistines who were encamped at Bethlehem.  Verse 17 states ” David longed for Water and said ;” Oh that someone would get me Water from the Well near the gate of Bethlehem.” Three of his mighty warriors broke through enemy lines and drew Water from the Well and carried it back to David. Now the King refused to drink it due to the risk involved to obtain the Water, however , David did pour it out as a libation unto GOD. Glory to GOD!!!

      Now David had Water , yet , he also had an emotional need which could only be met with the Water from the Well at Bethlehem. It was the water from his childhood [1 Samuel 16:1] and his soul needed a familiar Spirit!!! Thank you JESUS!!!

       Oftentimes Life has us all caught up in the present without much time to look past our wants to a point where in which we can see our needs. We live in a busy society , however , like David , every now and then events in Life will bring us to a desire from our past  which will render us dependent upon our ability to see our most important need. HIS Living Water , HIS Holy Spirit!!! We just need to surround ourselves with like-minded warriors!!! Amen!!!

    Getting thirsty!!!

   I was reading in Zechariah 10 where we should ask GOD for rain in the springtime. HE gives us provision in our time of need!!! GOD is certainly Good!!! GOD wants to make our soil fertile in the proper time!!! Amen!!!

   What a simple way in which to be Blessed ; ask GOD.  GOD knows our every need and when our will lines up with HIS Will we can expect blessings. HE will send us rain in the springtime. Glory.

    I honestly believe that there comes a time in everyone’s Life in which we need to prepare our Souls for seed. We need rain. GOD indeed brings the storms and with them all of their woes , however , with every storm comes the much-needed rain which allows us , as Christians , to grow spiritually. Thank You JESUS!!!

     Verse 8 states  ” I will signal for them and gather them in. Surely I will redeem them ; they will be as numerous as before.” The prophet was bringing  “Good News ”  to the children of GOD for all generations to come. We only need to “receive” the Word of GOD and then live in it!!!  Hallelujah!!!

    Building an alter today. Sacrifice is coming!!!

   I Love you!!!!!!! Mark
