Be drenched and spread the flood…

“For John truly baptized with water, but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.” (Acts 1:5 – KJV)

In continuation with my previous post, this is another thought that my DADA gave me as I sat down for prayer.

The rain of HOLY SPIRIT never stops! The land was parched. The land was thirsty. It got its fill. But the HOLY SPIRIT ain’t satisfied with just filling us. There’s an overflow that HE’d love to give us! HE doesn’t just satisfy us, HE gives much more in abundance causing an overflow of the SPIRIT in our life.

 Being baptized in the HOLY SPIRIT essentially means getting immersed in that Sweet SPIRIT! And while we are drenched in that RAIN, there’s something else happening. We get to realise that the waters are rising. And rising! And continuing to rise! There’s flood all around us…

…and we can’t do anything about it. Honestly, we wouldn’t want to!

A flood that we’d love to get soaked in… A flood that wouldn’t drown us, but rather, would continue to cleanse us, and lead us with its wave into areas we never thought we could reach! It will just lead us with its flow into territories unknown and unexpected. Try going against the current of this flood – and we’d probably end up inside the empty tummy of a huge amphibian, only to end up where the flood actually wanted to lead you. Remember Jonah! (And if we find an amphibian blocking our way during the current, the SPIRIT will give us enough strength to make us swallow that disobedient fish!)

Soaked in the SPIRIT, we’ll be in the territory that the flood brought us. But the rain wouldn’t recede. Through the overflow in us, there are others waiting to be drenched. Those that never experienced this rain before… Those that never experienced this cleansing before…

Oh, how exciting is this drenching! It makes us wanna have more of this rain. It makes us wanna dance! It makes us wanna jump! It makes us wanna float! It makes us wanna do everything that this RAIN makes us do! It’s like the excitement of a little child left free with a bucket of water! Maybe even more… for we have the whole Heavens as our bucket waiting to pour out the HOLY SPIRIT. It’s endless and it’s limitless.

So, don’t be satisfied with just having your fill. Be hungry for an outpour and overflow… It’s available! And wait… for a flood is on its way…
