WORD TO PONDER: GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY WATER
In the coolness of the morning when the dew is still present, there is a lingering presence of refreshing rest. As the sun rises in the sky, your petals embrace the warmth and come alive to follow its path. But when high noon passes, morning’s dew is but a dim memory, and as the earth bakes in midday, what was not watered now wilts.
Precious one, just like the fragile plants that blossom in the summer’s heat, you need daily water. You may not miss your daily water after having rested and enjoying My lingering dewy Presence. But come mid-afternoon when the heat of stress has taken its toll, what was not tended early now wilts. Beloved, take your time to draw from Me. Like a soon to be thirsty plant, draw deeply to water your roots - whether you feel that you need it or not. Saturate each and every day with prayer, worship, thanksgiving, meditation on My Word and receive fellowship in My Spirit. Sometimes you need long waterings, sometimes brief, but you need to be watered every day. These places of quenching are very important to your daily standing, otherwise you will wilt in the heat of the day.
Ps 63:1-2 NKJV
God, You are my God; Early will I seek You; My soul thirsts for You; My flesh longs for You in a dry and thirsty land where there is no water. So I have looked for You in the sanctuary, to see Your power and Your glory.
