“Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit. Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Ephesians 5:18 - 20 NIV).
The LORD blessed us with an RV (recreational vehicle) that was donated to our ministry about a year ago. Every so often my husband and I can go on a trip together. We are now able to enjoy God’s creation and get to rest even more in His presence and draw closer to Jesus. The RV offers also water and electricity and makes life quite comfortable considering the small space of living it provides. Normally we have to fill up the water tank ourselves, and as we use the water a pump is activated that will transport the water wherever it needs to go. The water flow is not as strong as at home, but it is sufficient and we are thankful to have a water supply.
Recently we made a fantastic new experience as we attached our RV to a water hook up for the first time. What you do is you take your own water hose, hook it to the water supply on one end, and then on the other end you connect it to the RV. So when I turned on the tap for the first time the water burst out with such a strong flow. There was pressure there for sure because of the constant water supply and our water pump was no longer needed. Now we no longer need to be worried if we have enough fresh water in our tank or if we need to dump the used water because now we have an automatic in and out flow. Now we are carefree and are enjoying our time in the RV all the more.
You too need to have a constant inward and outward flow. This will happen when you are aware at all times of the reality of the presence of the LORD and allow Him to fill you with His love and His words of truth. That’s when the godly inflow begins to take place. Now you are filled with joy and faith that will lead you to an overflow and an outflow of praise, tongues, prayer and thankfulness.
I pray for you today that a desire to be filled and overflowing with the Holy Ghost at all times would be birthed in you. Be hooked up to this kind of living water and flow out in His power!
Have a wonderfully blessed day!
