drenched by His Spirit

I arose today with a thirsty spirit. Craving an encounter with the Lord and eager to get on my face before Him.

There sits an emptiness deep inside that longs to be filled with the things that bring eternal satisfaction. An empty place that cries out for a filling of His Spirit.

A filling of His WORD. A filling of His TRUTH. A filling of Him that just satiates and overflows.

Closing my eyes in prayer, I beckon Him to draw near. To draw ME near to Him. To commune with me and reveal Truth like never before. Desiring a new and deeper revelation of His power.

Confession bubbles forth and spills out. Ridding my spirit of anything that threatens to hold me captive. Releasing bondages so He can heal the hurt. Acknowledging my imperfections so He can reach down and begin a new work in me.

Withholding nothing in His presence.
 Laying it at His precious Feet.
Ready to receive a new thing.

As I open my heart wide and lift my arms in praise, I feel Heavens rain begin to drench me with a much needed healing. I can smell the sweet aroma of His presence as the water poured from His Hands cascades down my head and soaks every dry place. Standing under the downpour, I experience a cleansing that goes deep. Deep into the hidden places that have been crying out for deliverance.

As I welcome the healing rain of Christ, He sends forth His righteousness to cover me, His love to strengthen me, His Truth to empower me and His Spirit to be ever present with me.

Thank you Lord, for the heavens rain you sent forth today. May I remain drenched in you and thirst only for the eternal things that you provide. Finding satisfaction in the thirst quenching water of Life that is flowing directly from the Throne of Grace.

"For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground" (Isaiah 44:3)

Remaining captivated by Him,
Beth

Hello Beth, so glad you stopped by. Thanks for asking about Nathan. He is doing good, but we do go back to B'ham the end of the month for a heart catheterization. Hopefully and prayerfully that will be all. I will update later. Blessings, Debbie

I love the life-lesson, especially since I'm leaving the land of heat & sun to reside in the land of cool & wet.
