Have you ever felt so hungry in your soul for God that it aches? Have you ever felt so thirsty in the depths of your being that your longing for just one moment to drink into God?
Well that was the psalmist David in Psalm 42:1
"As the deer pants and longs for the waters brook, just so does my soul thirst for you!! My soul thirsts for you as if in a dry and barren land, where no water is to be found!!"
It's very good to never take for granted the presence of God or his precious Spirit. The feel of him, the touch of his hand, the way he satisfies the deepest longing of your heart like no other person ever can. I'm talking God here, the living God and Jesus who said that out of our innermost being would flow rivers of living water. Life giving, life changing water for the soul. A river of Gods power and Spirit that frees us, heals us and transforms us from dry empty vessels by some desolate wilderness road, into the very resemblance of the garden of God!!
Just one touch of his presence is the difference between hope and despair! Light and darkness, going on or giving up the struggle but God says to you today that your struggle is not in vain in The Lord. He sees your heart, he hears the cry of hunger and thirst for more of him and he's going to fill you up so full of him that you will literally overflow with his goodness and his joy.
It's time for you to get serious about him once again, it's time for you to return to your first love and be the man and woman who says God I'm giving it all to you and for you. Come and fill me, come and fill me... and do you know what? He's going to do just that!!

My words I have put in thy mouth.
Isaiah 51:16

"Open thy mouth and I will fill it!"

You can get to a place where your convinced its impossible!
Yet that's a lie!
Nothing is impossible with God.
Word of faith is what we live in and by.
Your belief system gets eroded by failure but faith acts
To restore your life back out of the impossibility trap.
See by faith! We walk by faith not by sight!

Romans 10:6

God says this "but the word is very close to you! (Jesus being the
Living word of God)"
In your mouth and in your heart that, YES you CAN do it!!
It's not impossible!!
Faith says it is.
Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God!
That's why it's so good good good that God says that
He puts HIS word in our mouths!!
We don't need to go up to heaven to bring Christ down
To us, we don't need to go to hell to bring him back, he's risen
From the dead and defeated death for us,
The living word is within us!
By believing and confessing that God raised up Jesus from
The dead, we have salvation and enter into the
WORD of FAITH zone!!

Gods word needs to be constantly at work in your life. The words not dead, that's
The letter of the law, but it is active like yeast in bread dough.
It's alive, it's quickened by the spirit and produces FAITH in you!!

God says 'open your mouth and I will fill it!'

We should all be like hungry little birds with wide open
Beaks, looking to grab anything and everything that goes in
There! If your hungry for God, if your thirsty for his presence, then he IS GOING TO FILL YOU!!

The word of God is in you so you CAN do it!!!
You can do it, within you that word burns like an eternal flame that's
Just waiting to be released into dynamic action in your life and the
Lives of those that you share Gods word with!
God says "my word shall not return to me void and empty but it shall
Accomplish that which I've sent it to do!!"
It also says that "my word runs swiftly, speedily to fulfill what I've sent it to do!"
Sometimes it seems that your waiting forever to have the fulfillment
Of Gods word in your life, but actually that's only because we work and
Look at things through the eyes and timing of the human realm we walk in.
Gods word is at work in you and you need to keep speeding it on by
Your responses of faith and firm belief in that word.
Isaiah 55:11
"so shall my word be that goeth out of my mouth: it SHALL NOT return unto me
Void, but it shall accomplish that which I please and it SHALL prosper
In the thing where to I sent it!!"

"Fear not, only believe.."

To conquer the fear trap you need to trust a greater voice than what your own minds telling you.
If you've ever experienced fear of any kind be it large or small, then it's not a pleasant feeling. It can be so great that it can paralyse, defeat, unman the very depth of your being if you allow it too.
Fear is a formidable enemy that can't be given the opportunity to dominate your life.
What we can and should do, is resist fear and to allow an even more powerful force to drive out and away every trace of fear. I'm speaking of course about the love of God in our lives.
The word says that the love of God is shed right through and around our heart by the Holy Ghost. It's through the spirit of God that we even understand that we are loved by God our father and that his love will abide within us forever.
There is such a need in the church to be connected properly to Gods Holy Spirit! It's in knowing his voice in our hearts, that keeps us from listening too and worse, believing the lies of the devil.
God has not given to you a spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mind!  We have been given the mind and spirit of Christ Jesus and that is how we know that fear, like any other power of the enemy, is defeated in Jesus name.

One thing I've found doing life, which I hope helps somebody, is that you need the joy of the Lord constantly on the inside of you!
I've found if you allow the negatives to control you, how you feel and how you think, you end up in the 'depression zone'. It's not a good place to end up and is very destructive in what it brings inboard with it!
A successful life is a happy life and the kind of happiness that a child of God should have is not based solely on their circumstances whether they be good or down right awful.
I'm talking some heart joy that comes because we've received the Holy Ghost and he brings instant brightness into the darkest problem.
He is hope, he is joy, he is peace and soundness of mind and if he's allowed by you, he will cheer your heart with his presence.
Let's face it, as we do life we will run into the big old nasty of depression but it does not make a good traveling companion. It will talk you into a state of defeat, hopeless and unbelief!
It needs fought against, not wallowed in.
Proverbs 17:22 says this "A merry heart does good like medicine...". Let me tell you this, the joy of the Lord IS good medicine! It heals like a very effective balm upon your soul and mind and releases stress off you by the bucket load.
A joy filled heart repels the spirit of depression that's raging around the world that we live in. Depression has become one of the top destructive forces against the health of modern men and women.
If you want to travel the road of life with a negative spirit controlling you, every step is going to feel like a hundred!
Proverbs 17:22 goes on to say this and I think it encompasses all that depression does to a person, "but a broken spirit dries up the bones!"
Depression will start to break your spirit, attack your vitality of hope and grind down your vision till all you see is your problems and your failure, rather than the power of God that is within you!
Depression dries up your hope and then literally sucks the marrow out of life!
Join me today in saying this powerful word of God over your life.
"The joy of the Lord is my strength!"
A merry, joy-filled heart keeps you happy, free and in touch with Gods strength and overcoming power.
When Jesus touched someones life, he brought incredible joy into them. It became party time in their soul! Healing took place, salvation came and they were transformed into the kingdom of victory.
Why are you depressed? Hope in God, for he is the health of your countenance and your God!
