As God so often does, He takes me back, to the place where I heard Him, and where I first saw....
Yesterday, turned on IHOP and worshiped. Immediately I was here. Then they sang about rain, and a waterfall. I sang a prophetic song along about being thirsty. I wanted to paint it. So I spent the day with Him, drinking and painting...then I remembered, He had spoken to me about rain before...so I looked, and to the EXACT day, 2/4/15 of last year, He gave me a vision, and told me to pray for rain. He confirmed the vision as I listened to IHOP then too. Here was my original post, with my new painting.
12" x 36" acrylic, stretched canvas.
Are you thirsty?
What do you see?"
'Cause I haven't been seeking you.
I don't know...'cause I am lonely, sad, angry, disappointed, hurt...etc.
"Then that is when you must seek me..."
Then I saw Jesus holding a glass of water up to my lips, I tilted my head back and I began to drink.
I heard Him say.
"Let me give you a drink. When you are thirsty, you need to come and get a drink."
Then I remembered, this morning, as I was in the kitchen, making my coffee. My little kitty Luci began to cry as I was rinsing off some dishes. She jumped up on the counter beside me. She was fascinated with the water, watching it, so I turned the spray down and let her see it. Then I had the thought, maybe she is thirsty. I filled up a glass I had just cleaned and put it in front of her. Sure enough, she began to drink. Wow, she was really thirsty, I checked her bowl this morning and it looked like it had water in it. But her big brother Moses was in over night, so he must have emptied it before he went outside. I bent down and watched her lap it up. It was cool to see it from below through the clear glass. I thought about getting my camera, or filming her...
Oh Lord, you were speaking to me then weren't you? And I laughed.
"Yes, I am always speaking daughter."
Then He said, "let me show you something." We shot off flying together, I became a little girl, and like a monkey I was clinging to him, pressing my head against his body to hear His heart beat. He was smiling at me.
We landed in a desert. He said, "What do you see?"
Death. Sand. Nothingness. I know in the spirit sand means flesh. Ahhh I get it.
He said "yes, without water, there is death. Every living thing needs water. And without living water, you become fleshy."
Yes Lord, oh how I knew this all too well.
Then He took me to a rain forest.
"What do you see?"
“LIFE” I said. Animals, plants, insects, birds..etc.
He said yes...”where there is water, there is life.”
We went back to another desert with cacti and I saw after the rain how they would bloom.
He said, "after the rain, things that are dormant come to life."
Then very quickly, in flash visions, I saw myself swimming, then in a waterfall, in a swimming pool, in the ocean, in a river...etc.
I saw a drop of water being released from God's fingertip, and when I looked up, it was the size of a hot air balloon crashing over me.
Then He took His cupped hands full of water and threw it into my face...I laughed and realized he wanted to have a water fight with me...playful times with Jesus.
"One more thing"...He said. And He took me to a beautiful vista. I could see for miles. Then it began to rain. He said "I send the rain, pray for rain to come over America and my church. Over my people that they might come back to life."
I said...ok, now I want to drink. I felt awkward, it has been so long, so He reminded me to tilt my head back, yes...like I do in worship, and just receive. Then, in the spirit, I jumped in his lap and put my head against his chest, and wept. Again, my thoughts went to how Luci will jump in my lap when she wants love or up on the counter beside the sink when she is thirsty.
I was listening to IHOP, streaming earlier, before I spent time with God, I'd asked Him to speak prophetically to me through the worshipers...I needed a "sign" I said that "this is all real"...and when I was done being with Him, an old familiar song came on...so prophetic.
I want to sit at your feet
Drink from the cup in your hand.
Lay back against you and breathe, feel your heart beat
This love is so deep, its more than I can stand
I melt in your peace, its overwhelming
The more I seek you,
The more I find you
The more I find you, the more I love you
Then He reminded me of this scripture:
Come, all who are thirsty and drink.
