Clean and Free! Praise The Lord!

“On that day a fountain will be opened for the dynasty of David and for the people of Jerusalem, a fountain to cleanse them from all their sins and impurity. (Zechariah 13:1 NLT)

Observation: The Living Water is such a fountain, washing believers continually, through every part of them--so they are clean every whit--no longer limited by the filth they wore before, new-clothed in glory where before only dingy rags hung. 

Application: What an astounding, amazing, revolutionary thing this Grace is.  It washes all darkness and enjoyment of dark things from our souls, leaving us as clean and bright as a newly-washed window on one of those Autumn days where the sky's clarion blue and the clouds' white impossibility in the glory of the sun makes you ache and rejoice all at once with the beauty of it. 

Prayer: Oh, God of mine, I praise You for Who You are!!! I worship You for Who You are. Yahweh. The One who washes clean, who makes ALL things new, whose mercy for me is fresh with each morning. What a miracle it all is! What a gift, this life of living Your way as a love offering to You. I NEVER want anything else. I will follow YOU. I trust in YOU. Alpha, Omega, and my everything in between. Hallelujah!!! :-)
