On the final and climactic day of the Feast, Jesus took his stand. He cried out, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Rivers of living water will brim and spill out of the depths of anyone who believes in me this way, just as the Scripture says.” - John 7:37-38 (The Message)

God is always near in your time of need. Some people don’t believe that. How about you? Have you ever thought that God was late? Did you ever ask Him, “Lord, where are You?” Well, maybe He hasn’t left the depot yet because you haven’t done His will. He can’t go any further until you do His will. God is always where He is needed and He is equal to the demand that is made upon Him. He sees the end from the beginning.- Jesse Duplantis

A simple answer to a tough question, but difficult to digest. However, it’s the truth and what many of us need to hear, accept and DO!

Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good. - Romans 8:26-28 (The Message)

I’ll live in them, move into them;  I’ll be their God and they’ll be my people. So leave the corruption and compromise;  leave it for good,” says God. “Don’t link up with those who will pollute you.  I want you all for myself. I’ll be a Father to you; you’ll be sons and daughters to me.” 2 Corinthians 6:17 (The Message)
