Message / Bible Study
Ten years, three weeks, and three days ago today, I woke up in the Psychiatric ward of a hospital in a city other than the one in which I now live. I had a scar and a bruise on my wrist, about which I had no recollection concerning its cause.
I remember asking God to search my heart – that if He should find anything unlike Him within me, that He would prune that extent from my existence, and therefore refine me to be more like Him as I endeavored to labor always in His precious vineyard.
As I lay in a hospital room bed, the fear of the Lord was upon me. After praying to God that I might be made clean and whole, that His keeping power would rest, rule, and abide in me, I was awakened from sleep by the feeling of my spirit leaving my body; then, coming back. This happened twice.
I left the hospital after a span of nearly ten days. It felt as though I was leaving the valley of the shadow that we read about in the 23rd Psalm. The fear that I had was not of dying – it was of dying in sin.
There have been at least three times in my life that I was hospitalized due to dehydration. My symptoms were severe fatigue, nausea, and even hallucinations.
The natural body without divine intervention can only last about three days without water for three days before being dehydrated. The Spiritual Body, which body we have if we walk in the Light of God, will also dry up without living water.
The enemy’s desire then is to starve you of the life-giving WORD and make you susceptible to wrong choices that will hinder your access to the soul-quenching Holy Spirit.
A physician can tell you that the need for water in the physical body can manifest in different symptoms. This dehydration can even make you feel hungry for food when what you need is water. Furthermore, by the time your brain distributes the signal that you in fact need water, you are already past the threshold of beginning dehydration. Thus you can be in need of water before you even know it.
My past dehydration was a direct metaphor for my spiritual condition at those times in my life when I lacked sufficient internal water.
Are you experiencing a dry season? God is calling us to return to the well and receive the living water of the Holy Spirit.

5:00 AM – The Message / Bible Study
Today’s Message: “Help Me”
You will face many defeats in your life; but never let yourself be defeated. – Maya Angelou
Failing at something does not make you a failure. Failure is not the opposite of success; in fact, failure is often a pit-stop on the road to success. These are experiences from which you can derive revelation and maturity.
The opposite of success is quitting. If you give up, you cannot succeed. If you don’t quit, you cannot fail. If you get up when you fall, you can still finish the race. Run your race with patience. I decree and I declare that you will cross the finish line. It does not matter where you start, it matters how you play the game and that you finish well. Ask God to lead you in everything.
If you have some embarrassing moments, know that they are temporary spaces on your timeline of accomplishments. You can learn from them and learn to laugh at them as you grow in faith. No matter what happens, keep God first. HE is the source of your help through it all.
My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. Psalm 121:2
When we are instructed to crucify the flesh – this is not a call to suicidal intents. To crucify the flesh is to deny the fleshly lusts and pursuit of ungodly gains and intents that do war against the Spirit of God; to resist the devil and make him flee from our presence. This is how we put on immortality. We abstain from corruptible things and put on incorruption: that is, we follow the leading of the Holy Spirit, to will and to do righteousness (to be in right standing with God).
Satan’s personal attack on your life and witness is an attempt to sift you like wheat (Luke 22:31). This sifting is akin to creating occasions for you to doubt the sovereignty and presence of God in your situation. That adversary wants you to feel abandoned. Still, his arsenal in your path is not meant only to cause you to stumble. The purpose of your stumbling is to also cause others to lose faith in God when they see you fall. In order to avoid stumbling, we must love the Lord our God with all of our mind, soul, and strength (Matthew 22:37). Otherwise, we risk becoming lukewarm (Revelation 3:14-16) in our expression of faith.
The illusion of the enemy is to cause us to hold back our thoughts from the mind of Christ (which is actually impossible since God even knows our thoughts afar off (Psalm 139:2-4)). Trying to hide our thoughts from God is like numbing our senses in order to keep from feeling a conviction to change our ways. If we also cease to read God’s Word and stop communicating with Him through prayer and supplications in the Spirit, we will grow weary of well-doing (Galatians 6:9, 2 Thessalonians 3:13).
The purpose of Paul’s missionary journey that took him around the world was not to take in the scenery. It was to testify of his conversion in order that others might also be converted. Paul had the Spirit of wisdom.
Memory Verse: Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Proverbs 4:7 KJV
The Lord spoke to Solomon in a dream while he lay sleeping in Gibeon and God said, “…Ask what I shall give thee” (I Kings 3:5). The New Living Translation says, “What do you want? Ask, and I will give it to you!”
How many times have you read “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you” (Matthew 7:7), or “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you” (John 15:7)?
Solomon asked for an understanding heart (I Kings 3:9) to help him fulfill his charge from God as judge over Israel. Thus, God gave him wisdom. What? The world is rich in wise men who live or have lived in poverty? Wisdom? You can not eat it. You can not wear it… or, can you? Solomon was given a blank check from God. God would have given Solomon wealth if requested since He had already sealed the petition with His word. Yet, Solomon considered his responsibility above his power. God was pleased by Solomon’s humble response to a tremendous opportunity.
God is also standing by today, ready to partner with those who come to Him by faith, to effect His will in the earth. As mature Saints, we need to learn what to ask for. When the scripture says that God will give us the desires of our hearts, it is more than a wish list opportunity. God wants us to walk so deep in His divine purpose that He will give our hearts the will to desire the things that HE also desires for our lives – the desires of our heart will be His own desires, thus how can He deny us those things that we seek and HE himself desires for us to walk in?
When we go to God for help, we should be asking for revelation and strategies, not merely pre-packaged blessings. What we need to know is that God intends for His people to do more than merely co-exist with the rest of the world. We are to be change agents.
Take the challenge this week to form your prayers intentionally, going beyond that memorized, same as last decade prayer. Ask yourself what has changed in your life recently. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal whether you are in a dry season. Pray for Living Water. Ask God to fill your heart with HIS desires. Ask God to help you start every day intentionally in His presence, that may live according to His purpose and finish well when the time comes.
Wisdom is more than knowing right from wrong. The Bible says that wisdom is a defense and a life-giver (Ecclesiastes 7:12). Mathew Henry’s Concise Bible Commentary says, “Wisdom is as good as an inheritance, yea better.”
But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. James 3:17 KJV
I Kings 3:10-14 (KJV) reads, “10 And the speech pleased the LORD, that Solomon had asked this thing. 11 And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast asked riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment; 12 Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee. 13 And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honor: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days. 14 And if thou wilt walk in my ways, to keep my statutes and my commandments, as thy father David did walk, then I will lengthen thy days.
Thank you JESUS! Hallelujah!
