Have you ever been really thirsty? What is it like to take a cold drink of water when you are very thirsty? Think about that feeling for a moment.
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, 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. -John 7:37-38
What are some of the dry or thirsty places in your life? Take a moment to identify them and place them before God.
Are you in need of a drink? Are you in need of living water? Are there people in your life who are in need of it as well? What would living water look like for them?
Over the past few days I have encountered a river, an ocean and a downpour of rain. I can visualize these three encounters with water and they remind me of the ways that God was speaking to me through these experiences.
Find a time and place this week when you can stop, take a drink of water and consider places in your life where you need God's living water to flow. I hope that you will be refreshed and renewed so that you can share this good news with those around you.
Prayer for Today
Creator God, Thank you for promising to satisfy our thirst, to fill our cup, and to cause it to run over. Thank you for giving us living water that comes from the well of Your Son, from the river of Your Spirit, and from the water of Your Word. In Christ's Name, Amen.
