If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. James 1:5.

Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. Matthew 7:7-8.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:

Ask and you shall receive. I mean what I say. If you lack joy, ask Me for it and I will give it to you generously without reproach. I lavish My grace upon you in Jesus. I did not spare My own Son, but delivered Him over for you all, how will I not also with Him freely give you all things? Romans 8:32. He paid the ransom for all and I sent Him to serve you, save you, and reconcile you to Me. You have been bought, ransomed, redeemed, made holy and secure at a great price. It cost the treasure of Heaven, My Son and your Lord, to make you whole and perfect, and all My magnificent, awesome promises became “yes” to you in Him no matter what had previously divided us.

The real underlying desire of each heart is to be happy. That is the main reason people do all the things they do. They are seeking many things but the one thing they are all trying to achieve is a happy life. But what many do not know is a happy life, a life of joy that nothing and no one can take from you in the way of outside circumstances and ups and downs of the material world, comes from a connection with Me that is similar to a branch abiding in a vine or a tree rooted in good soil with roots tapping into an underground spring. Such a tree has green leaves that do not wither and bears fruit in season even in times of drought for they have a hidden source of provision upon which they feed.

Your joy comes from connection with Me, the source of true joy.

How do you connect? Prayer, the flow of prayer which becomes a continuous flow of worship, a continuous flow of drinking from the well of joy, which is Pure Love.

I will bring you to My holy mountain and make you joyful in My house of prayer. “The righteous person will flourish like the palm tree, he will grow like a cedar in Lebanon, planted in the house of the LORD, they will flourish in the courtyards of our God. They will still yield fruit in advanced age; they will be full of sap and very green!” Psalm 92:13. Here you see I liken those planted in My house of prayer as palm and cedar trees, and in Isaiah, continuing on from the passage Jesus read as His mission statement in the synagogue in Nazareth, you read: “So they will be called oaks (terebinths) of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.” Isaiah 61:3. All of these trees grow very tall, live for hundreds of years, and have root systems that go deep, even tap roots in some of them. They will find the water source if there is an underground spring, the tap root will even turn laterally under the ground to seek out a water source and the root system will follow going deep and wide. I tell you that the one who meditates and speaks (mutters to himself) on My Word day and night and finds it delightful will be like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither.” Psalm 1:3.

I tell you to be rooted and grounded in Jesus, the Messiah (Christ, anointed One), and thus to be rooted and grounded in Love, and to be filled with My Spirit in the inner man, “that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the believers what is the width and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled to all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:17-19. “Therefore, as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude.” Colossians 2:6-7.

Jesus, after He first asked her for a drink, which she did not give him, told the Samaritan woman by the well in Sychar of Samaria, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who is saying to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.” She said to Him, “Sir, You have no bucket and the well is deep; where then do You get this living water? You are not greater than our father Jacob, are You, who gave us the well and drank of it himself, and his sons and his cattle?” Jesus answered and said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again; but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never be thirsty; but the water that I will give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up to eternal life.” John 4:10-14.

With joy you shall draw water at the springs of Salvation. Isaiah 12:2. But how can you never be thirsty again if you have to draw it with a bucket? Are you beginning to see where I am headed with this? Get ready for revelation knowledge!

Be rooted and grounded in Christ, roots draw up water continuously. So if your roots are tapped into the living water in Christ you are not going occasionally with a bucket when you get thirsty or need cleansing to draw it out, you are tapped in by the roots to a continuous feed of living water. YOU ARE LIVE STREAMING FROM A CONTINUOUS FEED!

In your life, in your very innermost being, your spirit, you have a live stream with a continuous feed. A continuous feed from the living water that flows from My throne. Revelation 22:1-2 (“And he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.”); Acts 2:32-33 (“It is this Jesus whom God raised up, a fact to which we are all witnesses. Therefore, since He has been exalted at the right hand of God and has received the promise of the Holy Spirit from the Father, He has poured out this which you both see and hear.”)

Rooted and grounded in My house, which is Jesus and His Body the Church, for He told the astonished Jews that He would tear down the house of God and raise it up in three days and He was speaking of His body. John 2:18-22 (“The Jews then said to Him, “What sign do You show us as your authority for doing these things?” Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” The Jews then said, “It took forty-six years to build this temple, and yet You will raise it up in three days?” But He was speaking about the temple of His body. So when He was raised from the dead, His disciples remembered that He said this; and they believed the Scripture and the word which Jesus had spoken.”) And Jesus is the mediator through whom your prayer flows to Me and Mine back to you so your prayer fits My divinity and My prayer fits your humanity.

And once you were rooted and grounded in Christ your tap root found the spring of Salvation, the living water pouring from My throne, the Holy Spirit, and it became a fountain within you, leaping up to eternal life. A fountain of pure love. A fountain of pure joy. And you never need thirst again for you have a live stream that you have tapped into with a continuous feed. Planted in the house of the LORD you are anointed with fresh oil. Psalm 92:10. The oil of joy. Psalm 45:7; Hebrews 1:9.

I love you. With joy you shall draw water at the springs of Yeshuah. But not with a bucket as hard labor and only periodically when you get dehydrated, no you are drawing it out continually by your roots, a live stream from a continuous feed. The stream of living water from My throne never ceases and never runs dry. Do you see why Jesus told the thirsty woman of Samaria that if she took the living water He could give her that she would never thirst again? And she got the correct idea though she did not know Him yet, she said to Him, “Lord, give me this water so that I will not be thirsty, nor come all the way here to draw water.” John 4:15.

The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who desires, take the water of life without cost. Revelation 22:17.

Now on the last day, the great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. The one who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’” But this He said in reference to the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; for the Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified. John 7:37-39.
