Water is life giving. Three days without water could mean fatigue, dehydration, organ failure and sudden death. Many people have died within days of being stranded without water either in a desert, out at sea or locked up in some building. If you have been locked up in a little cell without water, every hour would bring you closer to your demise. After two long days without water the very first drink you got would take you out of the danger zone giving you life.
The living water of God is life giving. You are taken from pending death to instant life. Not just natural life but eternal life. This is not just future life but the God kind of life. The Spirit of God inside you brings the God life in your life and releases the God nature in you. You don’t have to live in fear of death or with the symptoms of death. The life of God in you takes your life to another zone all together. Let new life be released in your life by the Holy Spirit flowing inside you.
SCRIPTURE READING: JOHN 4:10-15
Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.” The woman said to Him, “Sir, You have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep. Where then do You get that living water? Are You greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank from it himself, as well as his sons and his livestock?” 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.” The woman said to Him, “Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come here to draw.”
DEVOTION PRAYER: Dear God, Your life in me has released Your nature out of me. Lord, as I carry this understanding may I continue to grow in your likeness.
