Prime the Pump



                                                                          
                                                      




                                                 Jesus, keep me near the cross,
                                                 There a precious fountain-
                                                 Free to all, a healing stream-
                                                 Flows from Calv'ry's mountain.

                                                               Refrain:
                                                 In the cross, in the cross,
                                                 Be my glory ever.
                                                 Till my raptured soul shall find
                                                 Rest beyond the river.





                                                                                                        


Are you sensing a build up leading to an anticipated change in the mission God has for your life?

I know I am in a transitional season where I can see that God has been "priming the pump" so that He can use me more effectively and more in line with the call  upon my life. What about YOU?? I see some spiritual connections in priming a pump:  Water pumps will run out of pressure and stop working if turned off for an extended period of time, such as over the winter. In order to get the pump working again, it needs to "primed": water needs to be flushed back into it and forced through in order for it to create enough pressure to begin pumping again. Jesus told us"Out of your belly shall flow rivers of living water." There is purpose, meaning, and ministry in those waters.  As the people of God, we  are to have waters of life flowing through us. God "primes the pump" so that Living Waters may flow and the pump is primed in the Cross. The water is there, but have we run out of pressure? Are you compelled, is there an urgency, even a burden to get moving in the things of God? If there has been a wintry season in you spiritual life or ministry, I want to encourage you to let God prime the pump so that you can flow in the Spirit again.  In the natural, the operation called "priming" is when you have to refill the whole system with water. In the things of God our whole being needs to be filled with the Spirit of God! Holy Ghost water pressure is needed!


When one primes a pump,water valves must be opened. There is a power source and there is an independent water source.  Let me ask you:  Is your heart really OPEN to God and yielded to  His Presence and Kingship in your life?  REALLY open? Examine yourself: Is your relationship with Him such that you are in connection with Him as your vital necessity? Your power source?  Consider your ways: Are Living Waters from beneath the throne of grace, the primary source of water flowing through your being?  Just as there are many voices in the world, there are other waters.  We are speaking of pure waters. Drink deeply of the Spirit of God for YOURSELF.  Thank God for following leaders as they follow Christ, but you must know God for yourself! He alone can prime the pump. It may be in reading the Word, a message from that Godly leader, a prophetic word, the refrain of a hymn, in the sweet hour of prayer, or in circumstances and situations. There is work involved in priming the pump and we are to cooperate with God. Personally, I was to stay faithfully on my assignments. In some ways, it was a test to be passed. While He gave me tokens of encouragement, I was expecting more effective ministry. The thing was, and is, to keep working the assignments right where I am.  God is priming the pump! Many times, in difficult situations is where our faith is increased. Don't be discouraged! God is working that pump to draw waters from a deep well. The whole time He is applying the needed pressure, drawing out the living waters.His hand in yours and mine awaiting the bursting forth of giftings, the anointing, the Kingdom! When I think of priming the pump, I can almost hear the squeaking of the lever, crying out for oil. The oil of the anointing of God!  It may not necessarily be comfortable to the flesh because those "healing streams" flow from Calvary's mountain: Crucifying the flesh. Stay "In the Cross"! He is preparing you to flow! Psalm 1 reads that when we meditate on His Word we are like a tree planted by rivers of water, yielding fruit and whatever we do will prosper. His leaves shall not wither! And one thing about it, when those waters flow, it will edify that one through whom they flow and it will bless others God wants them to refresh. Refreshing waters and fruit of the Spirit. We cannot afford to be dry in the Spirit with withered leaves.  The Body of Christ is only so strong as the members of which it is made. We all need to be "wet" in the Spirit.  It speaks to life! God forbid that we should be a "dead" church! Thirst after God and pursue Him. That precious fountain is "free to all". Amen. Embrace that divine restlessness you may be experiencing: You are being primed for a transition! Stay right where you are: In God's perfect will. I think I hear the water now.......


  Grace, mercy, and peace,


Prophetess  Vickie Lee

Transition. That word is what the Body of Christ as a whole is going through. The Bible says "For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God." Romans 8:19. Priming the pump. Getting ready, preparing His people for the greatest move of God before the Lord's second coming. Praise God. I have been encouraged. God bless you Prophetess Vickie.

I think that everything published made a bunch of sense. But, what about this? suppose you were to create a killer headline? I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your website, but what if you added a headline to possibly get a person's attention? I mean Prime the Pump is kinda vanilla. You ought to look at Yahoo's home page and see how they write post titles to grab people interested. You might add a video or a pic or two to get people interested about what you've written. In my opinion, it could make your posts a little livelier.cheap soccer jerseys from China

Howdy! I realize this is somewhat off-topic but I needed to ask. Does running a well-established website such as yours take a lot of work? I'm brand new to running a blog however I do write in my journal on a daily basis. I'd like to start a blog so I can easily share my experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!wholesale baseball jerseys
