Life Giving Water
John 7:37–38 (NRSV)
Rivers of Living Water
37 On the last day of the festival, the great day, while Jesus was standing there, he cried out, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me, 38 and let the one who believes in me drink. As the scripture has said, ‘Out of the believer’s heart shall flow rivers of living water.’ ”
Our bodies need water to survive and when we don’t drink we soon feel the pangs of thirst that are hard to ignore until we get some water into us.
Just like our bodies thirst for water, our souls also thirst for something. Scriptures and the teachings of the Church remind us that only Jesus can bring hydration to our thirsty lives.
Only the Lord can satisfy our deepest longings.
Only He can flush out the toxins of anger, bitterness, jealousy, unforgiveness and rebellion. Only Jesus our Saviour can cleanse us from the inside out.
Every time you drink a glass of water during the 21 days of Seeking God, let it be a reminder that Jesus is the living water.
He has unlimited stores of blessing, peace, power and wisdom to pour into our lives.
Be refreshed by the Lord today.
Find delight in the truth of the Lord.
Thirst for Him alone.
Lord, I’m thirsty for you and your word. Nothing satisfies but you. Fill me up today so that my life overflows with your love.
Father we make this prayer in the name of Your Son Jesus, Through the Power of the Holy Spirit.
