God: the living Word; fountain of living water; refresher, renewer
Revelations 21:6(KJV) “And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely”.
Working is a guaranteed way of getting a salary or getting paid; and in the alternate if there is no action, no work, the expectation of being paid is slim to none. At the same time there are different types of actions which can be considered provision or exchange of service and ultimately when it is given, there is an expectation that one will get paid at the end of a period.
I’ve worked several jobs in the tenure of living and I have always been paid for the effort; sometimes very good and at other times bad enough to make you cry. But in this life, there is an effort which we all are offered and that is a reward at the end of time, we are given a choice as to the pay level we receive.
One of these days we will get things which will blow our minds, but one thing that I am looking forward to is the manifestation of the “Alpha and Omega”; who was evident in so much aspect of our lives: creator, healer, deliverer, and sufferer, Savior, King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He appeared throughout history with many titles and different appearances, but there is yet more expectation of more from Him and it something to look forward.
In our reading today He also invites us to come to Him for a free flowing filling from the fountain of living water; but you must be thirsty, you must yearn and have a deep need to be filled, to have more from this fountain. But once you get to the point of being filled with this hunger and thirst, He invites you to come get it.
I can speak for myself when I say that today, in my life, I desire, I crave a new filling, more, overflowing, inside and out, deep saturation from the fountain of living water of life.
My prayer today is Father, as you have made the offer to freely give of the fountain of the water of life freely to those who are athirst: place that deeper hunger, that yearning need deep within in so that when I approach the fountain I will be restored, renewed, filled with living water.
