Day 10: Quenchless Thirst


You are thirsty

Really thirsty

So

You fill a glass of water

You know

that it will quench your thirst

You believe

that it will taste good,

but you don't drink it.

Sounds silly

doesn't it?

Now picture this~

You are hungry

Really hungry

You pick out your favorite item on the menu

It is placed before you

You know

that it will satisfy your hunger

You believe

it will taste good

but you don't eat it.

Sounds silly

doesn't it?

Now picture this~

You are thirsty

Really thirsty

You are hungry

Really hungry

for

Peace

Joy

Hope

Love

So you

Hear the words~

"I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger,

and he who believes in Me will never thirst. John 6:35

You know

the words

You believe

the Words

but you are

Still hungry

Still thirsty

even though it is right there~

The Food

The Drink

We have it all.

We

know

what we

know

what we

know.

So where’s the power?

I know that Jesus came to save me

I know that I am a Daughter of the King, who is loved unconditionally

I

know that I have the Holy Spirit in me, infusing with me power...

I know ~ I know ~ I know ~

Joni the Pharisee…

because when I get up in the morning

and begin my day

and as soon as life starts trickling in

I react,

like an orphan~

worried

anxious

fearful

doubting

And

cry out~

Where are you God?

And then He answers me....

I am here Joni, where are you?

Great answer

because

Jesus hasn't gone anywhere

nor has the Holy Spirit

or His word

He is all there~

it’s me that has moved.

Knowing and Receiving

are two different things~

as

Knowing

God's word,

I would recite...

“Be still and know” and

“do not be anxious for anything”...

over and over again

and wonder why I am still filled with

anxiety and burnt out from striving~

all because

I don't swallow

I don't chew.

Knowing

isn't

Receiving

Receiving is doing.

It is

Picking up the glass

Picking up the fork

when Jesus

says

To Come

all you who are weary~

all who have a starving and thirsty heart..

so He will

give you rest. Matthew 10:28

by filling your heart with

His food that fully satisfies.

Know

Believe

and

Receive

Jesus~

All of what He has told us..

To not just know

To not just believe

but to

receive~

to drink

to eat

To take action

And

Put On

all Who

He says He is

because

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. Matthew 5:6

So

let's

Pick up

the glass

Pick up

the fork

and

Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him. Psalm 34:8

Because

Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat down on them, nor any scorching heat. For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their Shepherd; ‘He will lead them to springs of living water.’ ‘And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.’”

Revelation 7:16-17

What Word do you need to eat?

What Word do you need to drink?

Open up

His Word

and

Put it On

And

believe

by

receiving
