Come here and sit by my side and let me tell you the things on my heart for you today. There is so much each day that I want to say to you, yet many of your hearts are far from me. I desire so much to dwell richly with you but your attention is elsewhere. Can you not spare one minute of your day to come and commune with me? What has captured your attention so much that it drives your heart away from me?
My pleasures forever more await you when you choose to come and dwell with me. Take time out each day to come and meet with me and let me bless you in a special way. I have so much I want to share with you and anoint you with my presence each day. You are created to carry my glory but how can you receive more of me if you don’t take the time each day to come and receive it? It’s my desire to fill you and overflow you with my presence and my glory. It’s my desire to make you a conduit of my glory to everyone around you. I will pour in and you will pour out for me. It’s as simple as that!
But how can you pour out what you haven’t received from me? How can my glory spread across the earth without my glory-bearers sharing my love to those you meet? Come and let me pour out my love on you and you receive all that I desire to give to you. As you are filled with my glory, my joy, my everlasting love – you will be equipped to pour out and draw others to me.
You do not have because you do not ask. You say you have nothing to give and nothing to say to those around you – but you are wrong. I have made you in my image and with the ability to speak what I have done for you. Ask of me to pour fresh water on your soul and fill you to overflowing capacity. Then when you have opportunity to speak to others, living waters will flow from your lips and quench the thirst of others. You will become my conduit of love.
Ask and you shall receive! Seek me out daily and I will give freely to you! Knock and see if I will not open doors you never thought possible to walk through. For, intimacy with me is the very key you need to do marvelous things for my Kingdom!
Isaiah 29:13 New Living Translation
13 And so the Lord says,
“These people say they are mine.
They honor me with their lips,
but their hearts are far from me.
And their worship of me
is nothing but man-made rules learned by rote.[a]
- 29:13 Greek version reads Their worship is a farce, / for they teach man-made ideas as commands from God.
Matthew 6:21 New Living Translation
21 Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.
2 Timothy 2:21 New King James Version
21 Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.
James 4:1-10 New Living Translation
4 What is causing the quarrels and fights among you? Don’t they come from the evil desires at war within you? 2 You want what you don’t have, so you scheme and kill to get it. You are jealous of what others have, but you can’t get it, so you fight and wage war to take it away from them. Yet you don’t have what you want because you don’t ask God for it. 3 And even when you ask, you don’t get it because your motives are all wrong—you want only what will give you pleasure. 4 You adulterers! Don’t you realize that friendship with the world makes you an enemy of God? I say it again: If you want to be a friend of the world, you make yourself an enemy of God. 5 Do you think the Scriptures have no meaning? They say that God is passionate that the spirit he has placed within us should be faithful to him. 6 And he gives grace generously. As the Scriptures say,
“God opposes the proud
but gives grace to the humble.”
7 So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8 Come close to God, and God will come close to you. Wash your hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, for your loyalty is divided between God and the world. 9 Let there be tears for what you have done. Let there be sorrow and deep grief. Let there be sadness instead of laughter, and gloom instead of joy. 10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor.
