Plentiful Refreshment !!!!!!

Their soul shall be as a watered garden. (Jeremiah 31:12)

Oh, to have one’s soul under heavenly cultivation; no longer a wilderness but a garden of the Lord! Enclosed from the waste, walled around by grace, planted by instruction, visited by love, weeded by heavenly discipline, and guarded by divine power, one’s favored soul is prepared to yield fruit unto the Lord.

But a garden may become parched for want of water, and then all its herbs decline and are ready to die. O my soul, how soon would this be the case were the Lord to leave thee! In the East, a garden without water soon ceases to be a garden at all: nothing can come to perfection, grow, or even live. When irrigation is kept up, the result is charming. Oh, to have one’s soul watered by the Holy Spirit uniformly—every part of the garden having its own stream; plentifully—a sufficient refreshment coming to every tree and herb, however thirsty by nature it may be; continually—each hour bringing not only its heat, but its refreshment; wisely—each plant receiving just what it needs. In a garden you can see by the verdure where the water flows, and you can soon perceive when the Spirit of God comes.

O Lord, water me this day and cause me to yield Thee a full reward for Jesus’ sake. Amen.

C.H. Spurgeon, Faith’s Checkbook

    I am absolutely sure this is one of my favorites of his. Printing it out to tuck in my Bible. I love it. Oh, Dear Levi, how good it is to be back on your blog. Through you and your faithfulness to the Lord and His word, I feel refreshed. Between the writings of others that you generously share and your own words, you are a blessing like no other. ❤

      Spurgeon is my favorite writer/preacher of all time. Over 35 years of reading him about everyday and I still am not tired of him. I so glad this one blessed you. I hope you are feeling better!!😀

        I am improving. Think it may take awhile, but God may decide to heal faster than what my limited mind can comprehend. 🙂 Thank you, Dear Levi.

          There’s nothing wrong with your mind, dear girl. All that we go through is for a reason. If we could just figure out the reason. Lol. That too comes when we seek Him and allow Him to work His will through us. That’s faith. Trusting Jesus for everything!!!
