Bring On the Firetruck!

“The Lord will guide you always;
He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
    and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
    like a spring whose waters never fail.”  Isaiah 58:11
Dear Heavenly Father, we thank you that you guide Deeper Still always and you satisfy all our needs and strengthen our frame.  We thank You that the ministry of Deeper Still is like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Judy Townsend, a Deeper Still Ministry team member and the head of the budding Illinois Deeper Still Chapter, shared a word the Lord revealed to her about the October retreat.  The Lord showed her:

 water..moving began as as small bubbling spout and then eventually moved to a geyser with powerful force and this was the “ammo” used to break the chains and fight the battle.” 

Water by itself it is just a puddle that varies in size.  However, when wind is mixed with water, it can become a force to be reckoned with on a grandiose scale.  The Holy Spirit is the wind that moves God’s people and brings the power to destroy the chains of bondage.
The ladies that came to the Deeper Still Retreat were sun-scorched.  They were in need of the Living Water that would revive their souls and flood their heart.  They were also in need of the Wind mixed with the water that would violently fight on their behalf and break every chain.
One participant wrote at the end of the retreat:

“The wreckage of my past had left my life in flames.  I was trying to put it out with water guns.  Last weekend, the fire truck arrived!  There may be small areas still smoldering, but the water is still flowing.”

Just as the Lord showed Judy, the water started small but then gushed forth mightily to quench the flames ignited by past wreckage.  The Living Water never runs out and those who drink of it will never be thirsty.  May it continue to flow in the lives of these ladies, making them a well-watered garden whose springs never fail.
