“Therefore, behold, I will this once cause them to know, I will cause them to know mine hand and my might; and they shall know that my name is the Lord” Jeremiah 16:21
“Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.
Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.
“Judah mourneth, and the gates thereof languish; they are black unto the ground; and the cry of Jerusalem is gone up. And their nobles have sent their little ones to the waters; they came to the pits, and found no water; they returned with their vessels empty: they were ashamed and confounded, and covered their heads” (Jeremiah 14:2-3).
The little ones were sent to get water but when they couldn’t find water they had no choice but to come back empty-handed and they were so ashamed that they covered their heads. How many times do we search for water only to not find the water that we seek? Do we give up our search and take our empty water pots back to our seats? It’s time to prevail and stay, until we are filled to overflowing. I am guilty of accepting less than God’s best for me. Help me, Lord, to expect more of you and not to settle with a surface touch. If we are to build a relationship with you, it’s going to take more than just a short trip to the altar to dip our cups into the fountain of living water.
It will take our whole spirit and everything within us to be covered by his spirit and anointing. We can’t make it alone. We need God. If pride stands in our way and hinders our worship, that same pride may cause the anointing to stop cold without reaching souls in need of a touch. Thirsty souls need the living water. Don’t stop the flow of God’s spirit. Let’s worship from the overflow of God’s Spirit. We invite you to enjoy the presence of the Lord and to drink freely from the wells of living water. We are glad that you are here today to worship with us.
Have you offered up a sacrifice of praise enough that the living waters can flow freely in this sanctuary? Now is the time to supply the waters of refreshing through prayer and worship. Have faith in God, trust him for all that you need, forget not his benefits, he’s the one who saved us from destruction and he is also the same one who will take us home. If you have grown weary of praying every day with little or no results, maybe it’s time to take a good refreshing drink of water. The anointing will break every yoke.
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you,” saith the Lord, “thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end. “Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. “And ye shall seek me, and find me when ye shall search for me with all your heart.” (selected scriptures from Jeremiah)
Let’s leave with our vessels filled to overflowing.
