OCTOBER 6: TODAY'S RHEMA

TODAY'S RHEMA:

John 6 and Psalm 6
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

The 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 life 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
Sovereign Father,
Thy breath upon me and Thy word within me are the desires Thou hast faithfully placed inside of me.
Thy presence draws me, Thy kindness invites me, and Thy holiness sanctifies me.
Hidden 'neath the shadow of Thy wing, my soul finds refuge.
Hidden 'neath the shadow of Thy wing my soul is safely protected.
Lodge me and launch me into Thy predetermined calling and accommodate me with a multitude of Thy mercies that all those who look upon me might see Thy glorious presence and be cheered and sit in wonder of Thy graces.
"He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him will I trust. Surely He shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilance. He shall cover thee with His feathers and under His wings shalt thou trust; His truth shall be thy shield and buckler."
Psalm 91:1-4
Amen.

2) TODAY'S READ:
John 6 and Psalm 6
The "Oreo" practice of situating the creamy white of the Gospel into the blessed wafers of the Psalm is deliciously addictive and habit forming.
Taste and see for yourself.
Psalm 6 ---> John 6 ---> Psalm 6
------
3) RECORD
Select one truth from each of the chapters and record them together. Ask the Holy Spirit to weave additional passages of His word into you while you're reading and enjoy an intimately expanding thread of fellowship as He 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 thread:
"Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping. The LORD hath heard my supplication; the LORD will receive my prayer. Let all my enemies be ashamed and sore vexed; let them return and be ashamed suddenly."
Psalm 6:8-10
"All that the Father giveth Me shall come to Me; and him that cometh to Me, I will in no wise cast out."
John 6:37
"Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping. The LORD hath heard my supplication; the LORD will receive my prayer. Let all my enemies be ashamed and sore vexed; let them return and be ashamed suddenly."
Psalm 6:8-10

Today's Rhema leads me to such thoughts:
1) The calling, election, and purposes of God stand uncontestably secure on all men for all of eternity. No man can get on or off the holy grid created by God for His purposes and glory. Such realities ought to be the greatest considerations for calming and quieting the anxious soul and mind.
2) The "Bread of Life" grants daily sustenance for life.
The individual who feeds on Christ (the true and living bread) and comes to Him shall dwell safely with Him and enjoy freedom and soul satisfaction in Him.
There shall be no contempt, condemnation, nor critical gaze upon the contrite, starving soul desirous and hungry of the true Bread.
He shall be well fed.

3) The tender appeal of the Father toward truth and righteousness is utterly sustaining for this day.
It is the Bread which brings together and the Bread which divides.
The Living Bread brings unity to the brothers and sisters at the table.
The Living Bread gathers ... and the table grows wide.
None shall be rejected and none shall be kept wanting;
All shall be filled at "His" glorious table.
Look well and make room ...
For the hungry soul.
