After I posted yesterday I started singing…I wandered in the barren land of sin and shame. Nothing satisfying there I found. Then to the blessed Christ one day I came. Where springs of living water did abound. Some of you may know this song so you can sing it right along with me 🙂
Thirsty? John 7:37 says, “…If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.” Verse 38 saturates our heart. It says, “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”
Our hydrator is within! It’s the reservoir that is filled with His hidden word. It is there the moment our mind recalls it, or the Holy Spirit recalls it to our mind.
I love this section of Psalm 65. I like to think of it in the spiritual sense of how God’s words daily water our lives. Verses 9-11 say, “You visit the earth and water it, You greatly enrich it; the river of God is full of water; You provide their grain, for so You have prepared it.
You water its ridges abundantly, You settle its furrows; You make it soft with showers, You bless its growth.
You crown the year with Your goodness, and Your paths drip with abundance.”
Notes these words in just 11 verses: enrich, provide, prepared, abundantly, and bless. Drink them in and let them settle on your heart to water it.
Psalm 36:8 says, “They are abundantly satisfied with the fullness of Your house, and You give them drink from the river of Your pleasures.”
