Sizzling Hot Days in Wisconsin
Sizzling Hot Days in Wisconsin

We have been in the midst of a record-breaking hot spell.  On the 4th of July it was 116 degrees, very humid and the heat index was well over 120!!  Many people and family pets have recently suffered heat stroke, and sadly some have passed away.  The most needed item to have at all times is water!  Water!   Without water we can only survive 3 days. 

In the Word our Lord God describes His mercy and salvation in relationship to water. 

Psalm 36:5-10 Your steadfast love, O LORD, extends to the heavens, Your faithfulness to the clouds.  Your righteousness is like the mountains of God;  your judgments are like the great deep; man and beast you save, O LORD.  How precious is Your steadfast love, O God!  The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings.  They feast on he abundance of Your house, and You give them drink from the river of your delights.  For with You is the fountain of life;  in Your light do we see light.  Oh, continue your steadfast love to those who know You, and Your righteousness to the upright of heart!

In today’s world,  there are many who are thirsty but will not drink of the Water of Life, much like in the days of Jeremiah.   Jeremiah 2: 13 says ” for My people have committed two evils: they have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters, and hewed out cisterns for themselves, broken cisterns that can hold no water.”  

I pray for those who would rather have a broken cistern, which is incapable of sustaining life, instead of freely drinking “The Well”! 

  The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who desires take the water of life without price.

Revelation 22:17 (ESV)

There is great peace and joy in knowing the Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior. I am blessed to serve our Heavenly Father through Him. Everyday is a new day to share the the glorious Gospel message of grace and forgiveness; the blessings of hope; the Father God's eternal promises; and the importance of living daily in the will of God according to the Scriptures, especially now with the world in chaos and uncertainty. My life before I asked God to forgive me of all my sin through the blood of Jesus Christ and I repented (turned away from it); was one of utter selfishness in all aspects of my life. I partied, I lived for ME and only me! Now, I live for Him, with great joy daily. I want to share the Gospel, encourage other sisters/brothers in Christ through prayer and do as He leads by the faith He's given through His abundant grace!

One thought on “Friday’s Favorite”

  1. A great reminder, Stephanie, of our Source of sustenance in this barren world.

    We desperately NEED to constantly drink of His supply, to refresh our spirits and to enable us to continue.

    Those of us who partake of the Water of Life should also create a thirst in those who know us – that they will SEE Christ in us and want what we have.

    What an amazing God!
