Daily Thought For May 18, 2016

Streams of Living Water

LEARN TO LISTEN TO ME even while you are listening to other people. As they open their souls to your scrutiny, you are on holy ground. You need the help of My Spirit to respond appropriately. Ask Him to think through you, live through you, love through you. My own Being is alive within you in the Person of the Holy Spirit. If you respond to others' needs through your unaided thought processes, you offer them dry crumbs. When the Spirit empowers your listening and speaking, My streams of living water flow through you to other people. Be a channel of My Love, Joy, and Peace by listening to Me as you listen to others. 

"Do not come any closer," God said. "Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground." — EXODUS 3:5 

Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? 
You are not your own. 1 CORINTHIANS 6:19 


Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him." By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified. —JOHN 7:38-39
