OCTOBER 8: TODAY'S RHEMA

TODAY'S RHEMA:
John 7 and Psalm 7
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
Great God and Giver of life and wisdom,
Grant that Thy word would take hold of my life, my conduct, and my tongue in forcible and manifesting ways this day.
Grant Thy empowerment to be felt, realized, and understood in my innermost being as I open up Thy precious and truthful word and tread into the deep places with Thee.
Grant that a likeness to Thee would be reflected through me as I immerse myself in Thy sweet and sacred presence.
Lead me and help me to hear Thee with clarity.
"And thine ears shall hear a voice behind thee saying, 'This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.'"
Isaiah 30:21

Amen.

2) TODAY'S READ:
John 7 and Psalm 7
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 7 ---> John 7 ---> Psalm 7
------
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:
"Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just, for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins. My defense is of God, which saveth the upright in heart."
Psalm 7:9-10
In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried saying, "If any man thirst, let him come unto Me and drink. He that believeth on Me, as the Scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water."
John 7:37-38
"Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just, for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins. My defense is of God, which saveth the upright in heart."
Psalm 7:9-10

Additional Threads:
Psalm 7:9-10 ---> Isaiah 54:17
John 7:37-38 ---> John 4:13-24
Psalm 7:9-10 ---> Deut.33:26-29

Today's Rhema leads me to such thoughts:
1) The God of Israel is the God and Father of my soul.
My God-Father shall lend the same aid, comfort, and provision to me as He does unto His set-apart and chosen nation, Israel.
Those who seek to tear and violate Thy precious people shall reap their own hazards.
Thou hast, in the Thy great and merciful kindness, chosen an extension of care to the Gentile nations and peoples who call on Thy name. God be praised for such a tender mystery.
Let my soul be swallowed up by this great and merciful reality.
2) The defense of God is a guarantee.
There shall, no man, undo the thread of sovereign kinship between God and His child.
As His hand prevails to the end upon "His" people Israel,
So does His hand remain upon me and the living waters shall burst forth within and bring refreshing to others.
It is God's work to defend and to make the rivers flow;
It is man's work to believe and let them pass through.
My soul shall be immersed in Thy living waters and bear witness, in confidence, of Thy liberating goodness and glory, unto the dry and thirsty.
3) It is the sacred word and duty of God to uphold His great name and His chosen people. Such affirming declaration and visual realization manifests itself from Jerusalem, and heralds itself in our new's reports daily.
On the last day of the feast, Thy voice cried out and extended life and liberty.
Again, Thy voice shall sound, on the last day in the sacred place and manifest thy perfect glory ... end of story.
And Amen.
We look for the rivers to flow on the holy Jerusalem, from the Lord of Life.
We move to the God of the Mount who defends Thy true Zion and will reign as true Savior.
We wait for the day to come;
For Thy hand to deliver.
Even so ...
Lord Jesus come.
Hallellujah and Amen.
