Forsaking the fountain of living water and building our own cisterns
Word For Today: July 29,2020: Forsaking the fountain of living water and building our own cisterns.
I just wrote I believe a word from the Lord and when I went to publish it, Facebook froze it and then it was gone. I was expounding on the true heart repentance we all must bring to the Lord now personally, our families, our churches, cities and nations.
I shared Psalm 51 and David’s heart of true repentance. I shared Psalm 24 on who can ascend the mountain of the Lord, those that have clean hands and a pure heart.
I shared the kind of repentance a nation needs found In Joel chapter 2, to come and keep on coming to God until every hinderance of broken fellowship is restored.
I wrote about Revelation 2 and our sin of deserting God as our first love.
But Jeremiah 2:13 captures it most clearly of the sin in the church and in our nation. We have forsaken and deserted the Lord the fountain of living water, and we have made for ourselves cisterns, broken ones, that can contain no water.
It is time beloved to understand the call of God to repent and overcome. 2nd Chronicles 7:14 was not to be a plaque on a wall, but the law of God written in our hearts.
Who will hear the cry of God’s heart for us? Who will repent and return to their first love?
Which of God’s leader will stop the work for a moment and bring God people back to their knees and repent while there is still time?
2nd Chronicles 7 :13 13 If I shut up the heavens so that no rain falls, or if I command locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence and plague among My people.
Do we not see these very things? YES, YES, YES. In the goodness of god He tells us how to get out of them in verse 14.
14 and if My people, who are called by My Name, humble themselves, and pray and seek (crave, require as a necessity) My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear [them] from heaven, and forgive their sin and heal their land.
What should we repent of “forsaking the Lord, the fountain of living water and replacing him with building our own cistern, our own lives, our own plans and priorities may be a good place to start.
I am not sure this post has all the God gave me in the first and may not be worded as well, but I pray the Lord would bless this second attempt and touch the hearts and lives who have ears to hear and eyes to see.
In Jesus name.
