Because the weather is so dry right now there are many wild animals on the hunt for water. Bears are roaming in the city streets. Deer are coming right up to the door of our house. Even the birds sit at the empty bird bath hoping to find something there. They know where there has been water so they seem to hope water will be found there again.
Oh beloved, are you thirsting for God? Have you been roaming the streets of life hoping to find some drop of living water? Maybe you found it somewhere but now that source has dried up. You find yourself waiting and waiting, hoping it will come back to life. Truth is, sources on earth do dry up. Seasons come and go. What once brought great revival now may struggle to find purpose. But you don’t have to worry about that. You who are born again have access to rivers of living water within you. The Kingdom of God is within you. You are filled with Holy Spirit. God is living on the inside of you. You carry your own source of refreshment within your belly! Why do we struggle to find peace, purpose and fulfillment? We have it all! Just as the veil was rent when Jesus was on the cross, that veil has never been put back because now God’s children are the temples of the Holy Spirit! You are so full of amazing power, unyielding strength, absolute knowledge and more. You lack nothing because the One who gives richly all things we need is within you. Pray for fresh infilling. Pray for a renewed flow of the Spirit. Ask God to teach you what it really is to be a believer and then believe Him!
Everything for life and godliness has been bestowed on you and resides in you because of Christ in you the hope of glory! It’s time to quit lamenting the dry and allow the river to flow over you, in you and through you! No matter what the weather looks like, no matter how dry the ground and even if the fig tree has no fruit – you are verdant, you are lively, you are full of all you need!
God loves you and He’s for you! Run to His Word this morning and read all about the river of life, the river of living water and your place in the Kingdom! The enemy has told you lies about your life and now you have opened the Word and seen the Truth! Rejoice in the River of Life, rest in the position of Kingdom living you have and recharge in the refreshing life of a child of God as you live in the Light of His Glorious Truth!
