Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” By this He meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified. – John 7:38-39 NIV
When we let our belief in Jesus lead us, our lives flourish. When we forget to water a plant, it withers and dies. We need to drink from the Holy Spirit’s waters to be well hydrated and healthy.
When we are dehydrated, we get headaches. So also, when we are not connected with the Holy Spirit’s guidance and instead focus on our worries and external circumstances, our spiritual life starves for water.
If we find ourselves tired and frustrated, we can simply ask for His help, and He gives it freely. He is not stingy with His time.
Water gives life. We cannot survive without water, and we also cannot thrive without the Holy Spirit. He brings new life to our dreams. He gives us purpose and direction. He can guide us wherever we go. Amen.
