Day 201: The Fountain (July 20)

Yesterday while leading worship at a friend’s church, I kept having a vision of a concrete slab.  The slab then cracked, and God showed me the concrete was some hearts and He wanted to crack the concrete so His spirit, which was already inside of them because of their salvation, could be released through them.

It was a powerful vision and I couldn’t escape it.  I saw that many of us have God bricked into our insides and refuse to let His spirit come out.  Sometimes people do it because they are hurting, sometimes because they don’t like to feel emotions.  Sometimes it’s pride, because when we let the Spirit move in and through us, we must surrender, and we are afraid of what it will look like.

Whatever the reason, I pray that right now, in Jesus name, any concrete in your heart would be shattered and the Spirit of the risen Lord would pour in, around and through you.  I pray a tidal wave of His Spirit would consume you.  I pray that all the pain and fear of the past would be drowned by His Spirit and you would surrender to the waves as they reset your thinking and your emotions, in Jesus name.

Lord, You, are the fountain of life.  You are the One Who brings our hearts to life.  You alone surround me with Your Spirit, so I can know victory.  I am created to walk out victories of all kinds.  Let it be so in Jesus name.  Remove any hindrance between me and You.  I love You.  In Jesus name, Amen.

The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, that one may avoid the snares of death.  Proverbs 14:27

They drink their fill of the abundance of Your house; and You give them to drink of the river of Your delights.  For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light we see light.  Psalm 36:8-9

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.  Romans 15:13

Take some time this morning and rest in the fountain of life.  Let the waters God released inside of you begin to bubble up and fill your spirit with freshness and joy.  Let joy be the wellspring of your day.  I feel like God wants you to learn how to walk out life as a celebration.  Finding joy in every moment and in every situation.  Are you willing?  Let the joy of the Lord be your strength!

Lord, You are a fountain, where Your goodness always flows

Lord, You are a river, that leads me from my foes

Lord, You are an ocean, that drowns out all my fears

Lord, You are a creek, Whose waters are so still

Lord, I will rejoice for Your mercies are complete

They wake me up each morning awaiting to be received

Lord, I know You’re faithful.  And me, You’ll never leave

Lord, I will be faithful too, and follow as You lead.
