Come To Me – Present Tense

Come To Me – Present Tense…

On the Feast of Tabernacles, the nation of Israel would pray for the outpouring of rain and God’s blessings on the land.

So it’s no accident, that on that same feast, the Feast of Tabernacles, that Jesus said, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in me, as the Scripture has said, out of his innermost being shall flow rivers of living water.”

He spoke of the Spirit. And He did so on the Feast of Tabernacles because it was then that Israel was praying for a future outpouring of rain and blessings. But notice something – they were praying for water, for rain, to be poured out in the future.

But Jesus spoke in the present tense. In other words, the life of the Spirit, and the life of abundance, is never dependent on waiting for some blessing to happen in the future. It’s now.

So don’t live a life waiting for God’s blessings. Enter His blessings now. Enter the abundant life now. For the Spirit and the blessings of abundant life are now. And the only time to enter it – is now!

For he says, “In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.” I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation. 2 Corinthians 6:2

What blessing from God are you still waiting for? Live in the blessing of God now, start walking in it, start living it.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
