Living Water

In our experience with the love of God we shift and move according to a spiritual current felt deeply in our inner man. The Bible speaks about this in a variety of ways.

Paul said “in Him we live and move and have our very being” (Acts 17:28); also he said God would give us His glory “…to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man” (Eph 3:16).

Peter said “though now you do not see Him, yet believing you rejoice with joy inexpressable and full of glory” (1 Pe 1:8) and finally Jesus proclaimed that “he who believes in Me as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water” (Jn 7:38).

It’s this “under-current” that stablizes a flow of God’s presence in our lives and offers a resource of “living water” that quenches our spiritual thirst. I have often imagined this flow of spiritual vitality as the wells of salvation that Isaiah speaks about:

“Therefore with joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation” (Isa 12:3).

I have found that these wells are available to every believer and can be discovered and tapped into by a nurtured lifestyle of prayer and worship. Some folks ignore this wonderful experience and find their “christian” life more of a drudgery than a release of joy and fruitfulness. I would like to suggest that this is truly where the life of God is found.

David said, “You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore” (Ps 16:11).

David was a worshiper who dug deeply into these wells to release the under-current of life giving water that could offer peace and joy and strength in the midst of battles, storms or seasons of weariness. We are to be filled with the joy of the Lord and reflect a life that is abundant and spiritually fruitful… even in the midst of trials. So tap into the wells that reside within your inner man and mine those supernatural resources God has made available to you. I can almost hear a gushing spring coming forth from your inner man. Remind yourself that your Heavenly Father wants to release to you the Kingdom… “on Earth as it is in Heaven”.
