Isn’t water wonderful? It starts as a trickle bubbling up from the ground out of deep rivers in the belly of the earth seeking freedom and the light of day and then abracadabra! It appears! Have you heard the gentle laughter of water cascading over pebbles and rocks as if it were proclaiming, “Come drink!” Yes, I’ve rested by many a stream and have been swept in my mind to another time of pioneers in virgin forests. I’ve knelt in the soft earth and sucked in the clear fresh and almost sweet tasting water. As well I should, since water is the wellspring of life!
There is another water of which the Psalmist knew. He wrote of it in Psalm 87 where he referred to worshipping the Lord and said, “Both the singers and the players on instruments say,“All my springs are in you.” (Psalm 87:7) Yes, the true Living and inspiring Water is what they sought for and we should as well!
The earth, neither men who trod upon its soil, can offer this water. King David said, “O God, You are my God; Early will I seek You; My soul thirsts for You; My flesh longs for You In a dry and thirsty land where there is no water.” (Psalm 63:1) You will not find this Water in your accomplishments, your wealth, your trinkets or any other earthly thing. Yet you know your soul longs for it!
Jesus spoke of this Water when he met a woman at a well. He asked her for a drink and used the opportunity to offer her the Living Water only he could provide.“Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, 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 4:13-14)
Have you tasted of this Living Water? If not, it is only a prayer of faith away! Turn from the dry and thirsty land of this world and seek the Living Water by faith today! Jesus said, He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” (John 7:38) Kneel by the eternal spring and call on the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Jesus the only true Savior who can cleanse you with His Water and grant unto you eternal life.
