Rivers Of Living Water

What an incredible parallel, a simple two atoms of hydrogen combined with one atom of oxygen, creates the very thing that is necessary to sustain life.




Water gives life.


Water sustains life.


Water is life.



While our world is almost covered with water, nearly all of it is unsuitable for drinking. With water all around us, 97% is undrinkable as is. And most of that which is drinkable is locked in ice.


Such is life. While there are many things that vie for our attention and try to meet our needs, there is but ONE we were created to desire above all. Drinking contaminated water will make you ill. Likewise, trying to fill your longings with people, food, or stuff will make you spiritually ill.


Jesus, The One, is the only ONE capable of quenching your thirst.


Our thirst, an unquenchable thirst can only be satiated by taking a drink from the rivers of living water. You can survive weeks without food but only days without water. And my soul is thirsty for a tall, cool, refreshing drink delivered directly from the Master’s water pot.


You, God, are my God,

earnestly I seek you;

I thirst for you,

my whole being longs for you,

in a dry and parched land

where there is no water.

I have seen you in the sanctuary

and beheld your power and your glory.

Psalm 63:1-2


And when I beseech Him, He supplies. He supplies all my needs and I am satisfied.


A sip from His cup pours:

~Patience in my heart for my children

~Love and affection for my husband

~Words that edify for the women I serve

~Physical stamina to carry my cross


His nourishing waters incite action. Trees grow, flowers bloom and succulent fruit hangs heavy with growth.


Oh Father, plant me. I want my roots to go deep. Like the mighty, strong baobab tree, let my trunk be thick and filled with your living waters. I am the tree planted by rivers of living water. My leaves will not wither. Rooted in you I am fruitful.


And the blessings will flow from generation to generations. As the rivers of living waters flow, they will reach even to your children’s children.


For I will pour water on the thirsty land,

and streams on the dry ground;

I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring,

and my blessing on your descendants.

They will spring up like grass in a meadow,

like poplar trees by flowing streams.

Isaiah 44:3-4


Thanks be to our Lord and savior Jesus Christ for being our Living Water. He alone supplies EVERYTHING we need to sustain life. When we drink deeply from His cup, our thirst is quenched and we are imbued with everlasting life.


“But whoever drinks of the water

that I shall give him will never thirst.

But the water that I shall give him

will become in him a fountain of water

springing up into everlasting life.”

John 4:14


Even now as I type, the rivers of living water are overtaking me. I go with the flow, go with the current and am overtaken by the sheer magnitude of His love. My heart is so full and I have so much to say on this subject. I have a feeling this will go on to be a series. My spirit is free and soaring and my thoughts are moving faster than my hands can type.





Friends, I pray you do not allow yourselves to become dehydrated. Most often, when we realize we are thirsty, we are already nearing dehydration. If you’ve been encouraged to drink 64oz of water a day, how much of Jesus should you be drinking daily? In fact, if you are a believer, the water is in you. Just like reaching water in the desert, you may have to dig deep for it. Your body is composed of more than 60% water. So dig deep into yourself. Crucify your flesh and it’s longings to release the water (for more on releasing your spirit CLICK HERE).


Be proactive.


Dig deep.


Stay hydrated.


Take a deep drink from the Master’s cup.


As always, it is my prayer that you’ve been Inspired To Live Fully!
Happy to connect with friends sharing the Good News Purposeful Faith

    Stay spiritually hydrated. I love that concept! Jesus will never leave us thirsty, will He? So blessed by your post as your neighbor at the #RaRaLinkup. And so blessed to get to know you a little better! Thank you for sharing your beautifully encouraging words with us.

      Your words rang in my spirit this morning helping me stay hydrated. The “could never” tried to creep up on me. But the Lord placed a song in my heart “Your love never fails, it never runs out, it never gives up on me”. So I said Lord if your love never gives up on me, I won’t allow my “could never” to take over me. He doesn’t give up and I won’t either. Pressing toward to the mark friend and I pray you are too.

      Thank you sweet friend. I just keep remembering when I went to Jamaica last year and climbed Dunn’s River Falls. I was physically and spiritually overtaken my the rivers of living water. And the Lord is reminding me that that was not an isolated incident but He wants me to continually immerse myself in Him.
