TODAY'S RHEMA: JOHN 4 and PSALM 4By: Darrelyn L. TuttThe word "Rhema" is a special and uncommon word reserved for a special "utterance."How beautifully it attaches itself to our Savior's words who gives us live-giving Rhema words daily, hourly, and moment by moment.We weave our "three strand" study format into our communion with Christ in order to become empowered, engaged, and employed for His service.1) PRAYER Solid and Safe Father,My soul hides itself in the cleft of Thy care.Surely my smallness speaks well of Thy greatness.Surely my inadequacies speak favorably of Thy mercies.Surely my humanness speaks directly to Thy sovereignty.How well I see Thy greatness in my littleness.How like "Thee" I long to be and how sweet and good is Thy sure word to me."How sweet are Thy words unto my taste! Yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth."Psalm 119:103Open my eyes to receive Thy living Rhema.Amen.-----2) TODAY'S READ:John 4 and Psalm 4The "Oreo" practice of situating the creamy white of the Gospel into the blessed wafers of the Psalm is deliciously addictive and habit forming.Taste for yourself.Psalm 4 ---> John 4 ---> Psalm 4----- 3) RECORDSelect one truth from each chapter and record them together. Ask the Holy Spirit to weave additional passages of His word into you, while you are reading, and enjoy an intimately expanding thread as He wonderfully leads you. This is a pleasurable and meaningful practice of intimacy between one's soul and God ... and profoundly personal.Here's the beginning of my personal thread:"But know that the Lord hath set apart him that is godly for Himself; the LORD will hear when I call unto Him."Psalm 4:3"But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life."John 4:14"But know that the Lord hath set apart him that is godly for Himself; the LORD will hear when I call unto Him."Psalm 4:3-------Additional Threads:Psalm 4:3 ---> Jeremiah 1:5John 4:14 ---> Revelation 22:1Psalm 4:3 ---> Psalm 139:14-17------Today's Rhema leads me to such thoughts:1) The individual who leans on the breast of Jesus shall learn of Him, be fed of Him, and grow intimately with Him. He shall lack of nothing and shall be supplied with an internal intimacy which none can take away nor rob.2) Thirst in man can only be quenched by true water from Christ.He fills and refills the dry, parched, and thirsty soul. He does not find fault with thirst; He draws "through" it.Christ is a wondrous "well-spring" of thirst quenching, pure water and He brings cleansing and restoration to needy souls. 3) I was known before I was formed;And I was chosen before I was born.Deep inside of my soul ... I am certain of this.My sacred adoption is bore out and born out of my Savior's doing and of His perfect will. I am safe and set apart for His purposes alone, and have been preserved and reserved for noble purposes. His word shall stand,I am safe in His hand.Hallelujah ...-----
