And He said to me, "It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God an he shall be my son."
Freely He gives to anyone that is thirsty. What are you thirsty for?
As a daughter of God I thirst for the gift of courage, love, integrity, honesty, faithfulness, and belief. And, He freely gives them all. I have to have His gifts, to overcome. With the life-giving fountain pouring over me, I can drink it in. I can keep asking for more, every day.
Through Him, I am an overcomer, because He freely gives whatever I need.
I do not always feel like an overcomer, or feel like I am receiving all that I need. It is in those moments that I question my surroundings and I let doubt creep in, that I must seek belief and courage. How does one behave like an overcomer when it feels as if they are loosing? How does one live with integrity, when it feels so dark and lonely? How does one have courage in the midst of overwhelming fear?
For me I must remember that I am His and His alone. I must turn to His promise and ask for the life-giving strength to carry on. I must lean into the promises He has spoken and walk in that direction. An overcomer chooses to take the freedom offered and drink in His goodness, even when it doesn't feel true.
Sometimes I have sat on the edge of the fountain, believing I cannot ask for the thirst quenching gifts. Believing I will not receive, even if I ask. It is in times like that, He sits beside me and reminds me Who I am!
Drink freely of His fountain today, ask for all that you need!
