Many of you feel so spiritually dry and parched like a well without water. You may even feel as if the glory has departed from your life (Ichabod). Don’t feel condemned as you go through dry times but continue to press in and pursue God through these times of barrenness. This is not the end. It is not over. Jesus wants you to know that He did not leave you and He wants to refresh you once again.
The Lord says, come unto Me for refreshing. I Am the living water. Those of you who feel depleted come and I will fill you afresh. I will fill those barren places. As I said in My word, you are coming in to a time when I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh, your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. You will experience the abundance of rain once again. Don’t let these barren times discourage you but rather use them as an opportunity to meditate on My word and fellowship with Me. This time of drought will soon be over, but you must spend time with Me. Recognize Me for who I am and hold on to My word as Jacob did when he wrestled with the angel and said, I won’t let you go until you bless me.
You are not insignificant. You have been created in My image and you are the very one that I desire to use to release My Glory upon this earth in an unprecedented way. I will not only release My glory into your lives and ministries, but you will be carriers of My glory and release it to others. As you continue to pursue Me, you will once again sense My presence. You will sense my wooing as well as hearing My voice. As you cultivate this new ground, your eyes will be open and you will recognize the cloud as a mans hand coming from a distance. Some of you will receive extraordinary spiritual encounters that are unknown to the natural mind. Don’t settle for less than what I have for you. Continue in My Word, resist discouragement, allow My word to penetrate your heart and stir you as a fire shut up in your bones. Don’t focus on the negative but as you look to Me, you will experience My Glory accelerate in great measure. As you trust in Me and believe My word, you will see a new day dawning and times of refreshing coming upon you says the Lord.
Isaiah 35: 6 – 7
“For waters shall burst forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert.The parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water.”
Joel 2: 23 – 24
“Be glad then, you children of Zion, And rejoice in the Lord your God; For He has given you the former rain faithfully, And He will cause the rain to come down for you– The former rain, And the latter rain in the first month.”
“Jesus answered and said to her, If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, Give Me a drink, you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.”
