TODAY WHILE IN CHURCH THE SERMON TOUCHED ON PETER WALKING ON THE WATER AND HOW HE WALKED BACK TO THE BOAT WITH JESUS. MY SPIRIT WAS QUICKENED. I BEGAN TO THINK ABOUT SOME THINGS I HAD BEEN GOING THROUGH THIS LAST PAST WEEK. ONE OF THE THINGS SEEMS SMALL BUT I KNEW IT HELD SPIRITUAL SIGNIFICANCE. THIS WEEK I DRANK MORE WATER THAN I HAVE IN A LONG TIME.ITS LIKE MY THIRST WAS UNENDING. I DRANK AND THEN WANTED MORE TRYING TO QUENCH MY THIRST.I THINK ON HOW I HAVE LET MY SPIRIT BECOME DRY. WATERING IT HERE AND THERE. ONE DAY A WHILE BACK; I WENT BY THE WATER AND I TOLD GOD, "I WANT MORE OF YOU" AND GOD SAID "YOU CAN HAVE AS MUCH OF ME AS YOU WANT, I AM A DEEP WELL". THERE IS AN OUTPOUR OF GOD IN THE SPIRIT; GOD IS REPLINISHING AND REFILLING THE DRY PLACES.
MATTHEW 14:15 SAYS: AND WHEN IT WAS EVENING, HIS DISCIPLES CAME TO HIM, SAYING, THIS IS A DESERT PLACE AND THE TIME IS NOW PAST; SEND THE MULTITUDE AWAY, THAT THEY MAY GO INTO THE VILLAGES, AND BUY THEMSELVES VICTUALS.
JESUS SAID TO THEM IN VERSE 16 "THEY NEED NOT DEPART; GIVE THEM TO EAT."
John 6:35 KJV
And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger ; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst
GOD TALKED TO ME DURING CHURCH ABOUT THE WEIGHT OF HIS GLORY AND HOW WHEN HIS GLORY IS UPON YOU; YOU HAVE TO GIVE IT OUT; THAT MADE ME THINK ABOUT FLOATING OR "WALKING ON WATER". I WANTED TO KNOW MORE ABOUT WHAT MAKES AN OBJECT FLOAT AND WAS TAKEN BACK TO WHAT I HAD LEARNED IN GRADE SCHOOL...IF AN OBJECT WEIGHS LESS THAN THE AMOUNT OF WATER IT DISPLACES IT WILL FLOAT, "LESS OF ME LORD, AND MORE OF YOU". SO IF I HUMBLE MYSELF AND I AM SUBMERGED IN THE WORD OF GOD AND FILLED WITH HIS SPIRIT MY FLESH WILL WEIGH LESS THAN MY SPIRIT AND I CAN WALK WITH JESUS ON THE WATER. I ALSO THOUGHT ABOUT QUENCHING THE SPIRIT. SOMETIMES IN OUR HUMANESS WE SHRINK OURSELVES AND CONFORM TO BE ACCEPTED. BUT I AM DETERMINED TO HAVE FAITH IN GOD AND LET HIM DO WHAT IT IS HE WANTS TO DO IN ME AND THROUGH ME.
2 CORINTHIANS 4
5.For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants forJesus' sake.
6.For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness , hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
7.But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
8. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed ; we are perplexed , but not in despair ;
9.Persecuted , but not forsaken ; cast down , but not destroyed ;
10.Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
11. For we which live are alway delivered unto death forJesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifestin our mortal flesh.
12.So then death worketh in us, but life in you.
13.We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written , I believed , and therefore have I spoken ; we also believe , and therefore speak ;
14.Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise upus also by Jesus, and shall present us with you
15.For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.
16. For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish , yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
17.For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
18.While we look not at the things which are seen , but at the things which are not seen : for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
2 CORINTHIANS 5
1.For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved , we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
2.For in this we groan , earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:
3.If so be that being clothed we shallnot be found naked.
4.For we that are in this tabernacle do groan , being burdened : not for that we would be unclothed , but clothed upon , that mortality might be swallowed upof life.
5.Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit.
6.Therefore we are always confident , knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord:
7. (For we walkby faith, not by sight:)
