    Yahweh said, 'I will destroy man whom I have created from the surface of the ground; man, along with animals, creeping things, and birds of the sky; for I am sorry that I have made them.' But Noah found favor in Yahweh's eyes. This is the history of the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man,...

    Of the angels he says, 'Who makes his angels winds, And his servants a flame of fire.' Hebrews 1:7 WEBWhen the preacher walked past our row of seats, it seemed like you could feel heat coming off of him.

    Hidden Away from Refreshing Hope Ministries on Vimeo. Today I want to talk about being hidden away by God. Unlike the world’s flash, fame, and fortune which is here today and gone tomorrow, before the Lord begins to use someone to bring change in an area, He will often hide them for a seaso...

Living Water

  • Now on the last and greatest day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, 'If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink! He who believes in me, as the Scripture has said, from within him will flow rivers of living water.' But he said this about the Spirit, which those believing in him were to receive. John 7:37 WEB

    In the hot Southern summer here, the air conditioners struggle to keep our data center cool enough, especially during record breaking temperatures. It is often blazing hot, sticky, and uncomfortable in the summer time. During most of the year, we are not the best at drinking the proper amount of water that we should, but there is nothing quite as refreshing and life-giving as a cold glass of water on a hot day. It can literally give us chills.

    The Lord has promised to give living water to those who are thirsty, to those who seek Him out more than anything else. A psalmist wrote "Like a deer panting for water so my soul longs after you" (Psalms 42:1). There is a point where nothing else will do but the presence of the Lord, for there is no substitute. He is refreshing and His living water will flow through us and splash on those around us.

    His water is for the thirsty. It is not for the preachers, the priests, the praise team, or the theologians, unless they are thirsty. You've got to want more of Him. Intense heat will make you thirsty. Sometimes the things that make us go "woe is me" make us thirsty for more of Him. When your back is to the wall, there is no substitute for the presence of the Lord. Be thankful when God gives you the opportunity to lean on Him, to have your thirst quenched by His living water. He gives water to the thirsty.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for the gift of Your living water. I so thirst for more of Your presence and pray that You fill me with Your Holy Spirit freshly today, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.
