OUR DEEPEST NEED
In my teens, I helped tend my grandmother’s garden where she grew orchids and other plants. I would take a tin bucket and fill it with water to the brim, then bring it over the plants to water them. I felt the sense of refreshment being brought to the plants whose roots have nearly dried because of the hot weather. I could see the plants “dance” as I splashed generous amounts of water over all of them. It felt good knowing for the moisture those plants needed for the day.
In the same way, God continues to give his Spirit to anyone who asks. God knows how dry our lives can be without his help. Ask the Lord today to generously pour out his Spirit on your mind, heart, and soul until it is filled to the brim. soon you will find yourself dancing with joy because God has satisfied your deepest need.
“For the one whom God sent speaks the words of God. He does not ration his gift of the Spirit.” John 3:34
