“For I will pour water on him who is thirsty, and floods on the dry ground; I will pour My Spirit on your descendants, and My blessing on your offspring.” (Isaiah 44:3)

My precious brother/sister in Christ, It is a great joy for me to wish you abundance of God’s blessings in your life for this month.

Because He cares for you He knows all your needs and satisfies you in times of drought (Psalm 37:19). He will satisfy you according to His glorious riches and pour out His heavenly blessings on you. He is a God of Glory (Acts 7:2). Christ in us is the Hope of Glory (Col. 1:27). Yes, He will supply all your needs (Phil. 4:19).
The promise of God for the month of September is, “For I will pour water on him who is thirsty, and floods on the dry ground; I will pour My Spirit on your descendants, and My blessing on your offspring” (Isaiah 44:3). Yes, God will make rivers of living water to flow out of you.

When there is a slight rainfall in our cities, immediately they become pools of water, because there is no way for the water to flow out. This happens especially in my city, Chennai. And along with this every time after the rain, because of mosquitoes, there is widespread sickness, virus and germs. People wait for rain to get drinking water, but then when it comes, it brings disasters, because there is no way for the water to exit. At the same time during this summer time, one day I went and opened the tap for fresh water to come which is supplied by the corporation, but unfortunately only air came. And after sometime, they switched on the bore water which is from the ground. And I said, ‘now I have wonderful water’, but alas! It was salty water! I couldn’t wash my face and mouth with that because, it was so salty.

REFRESHING WATERS

My friend maybe you have been waiting long for refreshing water in your life, but you end up with only salty and unhygienic water. Your life may be salty with no holiness, no joy in family life, no prosperity, no employment, no encouragement, no breakthroughs, no success etc. Maybe fear has gripped your soul and you may be wondering how you are going to live. God says, ‘My child, I will pour water on you as you thirst for me and become a thirsty land.’

When God delivered the Israelites from the Egyptian captivity, He performed mighty wonders, miracles and signs (Exodus 12:41; 13:14). But when they came to the edge of the Red Sea, they didn’t know where to go and what to do for Pharaoh’s army came chasing them from behind to destroy them. They cried to God and He amazingly opened the Red Sea before them. In the midst of sea, God made a dry land for them to cross, and led them to the land which flows with milk and honey (Exodus 3:8).

As soon as they crossed over to the other side, their enemies continued to chase them getting into the dry land, but God caused the waters to close in on them and they were drowned. The same waters which was opened to give way to God’s people, destroyed their enemies (Exo. 14:21-30).

As they were walking in the wilderness, waiting for God’s promise to come, they became extremely thirsty, and longed for water. Then they found some water, but when they tasted it, it was bitter (Exo. 15:23), so they could not drink it. They cried out to God for help. As they thirsted for water, they thirsted for God to give them pure water, living water. Yes, my friend, God saw their thirst.
Maybe today you are having a thirst for a good job, for monetary blessings, for a life partner, for good health, for success in your endeavours, etc. All you need to do is look to Jesus who says, “Have faith in Me. Ask Me. Then you will receive and your joy will be complete.” So ask Him now!

Yes, the Israelites cried out to God saying: “You are the living God, come Lord and satisfy our thirst.” And God came and turned the bitter water into sweet water. And He said: “I am the lord who heals you. I will never allow sickness to destroy anybody.” According to that promise, the Israelites enjoyed perfect health all the days of their wanderings—forty years, in the wilderness (Exo. 15:26; 23:25; Psalm 105:37). And God gave them sweet water and life (Exo. 15:25). Yes, God will do it for you.

THIRST FOR JESUS, THE LIVING WATER

Today, you need to thirst for this living God. Jesus understands your thirst. On the cross as he hung carrying all our sins, all our sorrows, all our sicknesses upon Himself, He said, ‘I thirst.’ But they gave Him bitter gall (John 19:28, 29). For your sake and to understand your thirst and your agony He tasted the bitterness and became cursed (Gal. 3:13).

Today, would you cry out to Jesus, ‘Lord, I have only bitter and salty water in my life; I thirst for You to give me life-giving water; Jesus, You are the Living Water, come into my heart, come into my heart!’

There was a lady who came to draw water from the well in a place called Samaria. Jesus, after a tire some journey, was sitting at the well and asked the woman for some water to drink. The woman was surprised that a Jew wanted to drink water from the hands of a Samaritan woman! She did not know Jesus. Then Jesus told her, “But whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life” (John 4:14).

Immediately that Samaritan woman said to Jesus, “Sir, give me that water, that I thirst not, neither come here to draw daily.” Jesus said, “Go, call your husband and come here” and she replied, “I have no husband.” Jesus said, “You have spoken the truth because you lived with five husbands and the man with whom you are living now is not your husband” (John 4:15-19).

She said, “Sir, I perceive that you are a prophet” (John 4:19) and she ran into the city and told everyone, ‘I have found a prophet. He has quenched the thirst of my soul. I was living with husband after husband, but my heart was full of bitterness and sorrow caused by each man who called himself my husband. But now, here is a man, who has spoken about my sorrow. He has spoken about my bitterness. Come and see Him. He has given me Living Water, a Hope to live in this world.’ Then they all came running to Jesus, the source of Living Water. The Holy Spirit, the Living Water that Jesus gave to the woman worked in her and sanctified her. He, the Holy Spirit, revealed Jesus to her and transformed her life. Through her, the entire village believed in Jesus and received salvation (John 4:28-42).

 ...Jesus stood and cried out, saying, ‘If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me, and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” (John 7:37, 38)

Yes, my friends, you need not die of thirst; need not suffer because of salty water and bitter water which is around you. The sorrows of the world need not kill you. God the Living Water is ready to come to you. So open your heart to Jesus. He will pour out His Living Water on you and quench your thirst. He will strengthen you in your weakness. He will lift you up and honour you.

On the cross, when Jesus was pierced on His side, water and blood came out of His body (John 19:34). Today when you call on Jesus the Living Water, Jesus will come into your heart. And the blood of Jesus Christ will cleanse you from every sin which is stopping you from enjoying God’s life (1 John 1:9). He will make a way in the midst of all the salty sea water. God will make a way for you. Jesus says, “I am the way (John 14:6). I will lead you (Jer. 31:9). I will go before you and I will make the crooked paths straight before you. I will make the treasures come to you (Isa. 45:2, 4). I will make the riches come; I will give you a title of honour. I will change your sorrow into joy (Prov. 10:22; Isa. 60:6, 17, 20; John 16:20). I will give you honour in double measure for all the shame you have undergone” (Isaiah 61:7).

Today that grace is coming on you. Turn your heart to Jesus, ‘the Living Water’. Open your mouth and say, “Lord Jesus, come into my heart. Wash me with your blood and fill me with Thy life.” He will do it for you right now.

PRAYER:

“Lord Jesus, listen to the cry of your children. Enter into them O Lord. Holy Spirit flow into their souls! Let all the salty water which is eroding their blessings, the waters of sin, addictions, pornography and lusts come out of their spirits, in Jesus’ Name and Father, wash them with Thy blood. Let all the bitter waters leave them. All the curses which have come upon them because of their sin, let them come out of their spirits in Jesus’ Name. Let them be freed, in Jesus’ Name. Lord, You who turned the water into wine, thank you for sweetening and exalting the lives of your children. Amen.”

From now on, Jesus Christ ‘the Living Water’ is in you; Praise Him for that. Say “Thank you Jesus for being in me.”

STREAMS POURED ON DRY GROUND

The Lord says, “I will pour the streams on the dry ground (Isa. 44:3).’ In Tamil version it is beautifully given: “On the dry, barren ground where there can be no cultivation, which will not grow any food, I will pour the river upon it. I will not just allow the river pass by that, not just river flowing on that dry ground. But from the heavens I will pour the river fully on it.”

Yes, my friend, God is going to pour as the rivers, His Rivers of blessings on the dry ground of your life. He is going to pour it and your dry life will blossom. Yes, Heavenly riches will come to you.

“The desert and the parched land will be glad; the wilderness will rejoice and blossom. Like the crocus, it will burst into bloom; it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy. The glory of Lebanon will be given to it, the splendour of Carmel and Sharon; they will see the glory of the LORD, the splendour of our God.” (Isaiah 35:1, 2)

Yes, riches will come to you according to Malachi 3:10, 11 which says,

“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house. Test Me in this, says the Lord Almighty, and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it. I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not cast their fruit, says the Lord Almighty.”

When you give your offering and ten percent of your earnings to the kingdom of God, to meet the needs of the ministry of God, to wipe away tears of needy people, God will pour out His blessing which you cannot hold, and dry ground will prosper and you will prosper. Yes, all your dry ground will be full of riches. God will pour showers of blessings on you. So today make a decision to give your best—one tenth of your earnings to God. And when you build the kingdom of God, the house of God, God will build your house.

Last month a lady from a remote village came to give her offering. In that village, even buses don’t ply. She has no relatives or family and she lives alone. Her house was about to be taken over by the civil authorities. At that time she went to the next door neighbour’s house. Our TV programme was going on in that house, and I said on the telecast, “Sister, your house will be established and you will take pleasure in living in that house.” She was amazed. She said, ‘Who is this man telling about my house?’ But she prayed with me, in the name of Jesus. A miracle took place. The same civil authorities who were about to take away her house came, measured the house and registered that land in her name. That house was made secure. She was rearing some sheep for her livelihood. When she heard about the construction of the Bangalore Prayer Tower she sold one sheep and gave that full amount as offering. What great love! What great faith! You know what God did? At that time there was a virus killing the sheep in that village, but all her sheep were healthy and none of them died. God proved faithful to His promise in Malachi 3:11 where He says, “I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not cast their fruit.” God prospered her resources. Recently she came and testified this in the meeting at Karaikudi. This time with great love she brought a hen as an offering.

This month God will pour blessings like a river upon you, opening the windows of Heaven. That river will just sweep away the unnecessary expenditures, losses, impurities, and addictions.

PRAYER:

Father, I pray that you will do justice to me. Pour your River of blessings on me Lord. Let all that has been lost be restored. Let provisions start coming. Let all the losses, failure, humiliations, discouragements stop. Let your glory, success, health, honour, security, riches begin to pour in Jesus Name. Give me grace to give to Your ministry liberally in faith believing in You Lord, to bless others. You are my Provider. I take from what You have given and I give it back to You, Lord. Receive it Lord, bless it and pour down a blessing on millions of broken hearted people through the Ministry and bless me too beyond measure. I love you Lord Jesus. I praise You for being my Father. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
