John 7:38 (amp) Lord, you said, “He who believes in you (who cleaves to and trusts in and relies on you) as the Scripture has said, from his innermost being shall flow (continuously) springs and rivers of living water.” It’s the cleaves to, trusts in, and relies on part that I must continuously grow in, Lord. Like the man who cried out to you, “I believe; help my unbelief! (Mk 9:24)” I believe, Lord, you know I do, with all my heart. Help me to always, more and more, cleave to you, trust you, and rely on you, in every circumstance.
Lord, I don’t need to figure things out. I can rest in your presence; cleaving, trusting, and relying on you. This is where (and when) your peace that passes understanding will guard my heart and mind – in you (Phil 4:6-7). I will rest in you, rolling my burdens over to you, because I know that you care for me.
1 Peter 5:7 (amp) says to “Cast the whole of my care [all my anxieties, all my worries, all my concerns, once and for all] on You, for You care for me affectionately and You care about me watchfully.” You do Lord, you care so much, and you’ve given me so much. And so I will rest in you; cleaving, trusting, and relying on you. And as I do, out of my innermost being will flow rivers of living water.
Lord Jesus, please fill me with your Holy Spirit afresh and anew today. Pour out your Spirit to overflowing upon me. And I will speak with songs and hymns and spiritual songs, with a melody to you in my heart. And I will give thanks always and in everything to You, in the name of Jesus Christ my Lord (Eph 5:18-20). Amen
