May 2018: Our Month of The Living Water
To a science student water is a compound of hydrogen and oxygen. However, to the vast majority of people around the world water is a critical element without which it is impossible to survive. “According to H.H. Mitchell, Journal of Biological Chemistry 158, the brain and heart are composed of 73% water, and the lungs are about 83% water. The skin contains 64% water, muscles and kidneys are 79%, and even the bones are watery: 31%.” The general recommendation is that an adult male should consume 3 liters of water a day, while an adult female should consume 2.2 liters of water a day.
Looking into the scriptures, (I Kings 17:2-6) Elijah couldn’t have survived without water so God made a provision for him. “Then the word of the LORD came to him, saying, “Get away from here and turn eastward, and hide by the Brook Cherith, which flows into the Jordan. And it will be that you shall drink from the brook, and I have commanded the ravens to feed you there.” So he went and did according to the word of the LORD, for he went and stayed by the Brook Cherith, which flows into the Jordan. The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning, and bread and meat in the evening; and he drank from the brook.”
Our Lord Jesus Christ promised to give not ordinary water but the Living Water. If the normal water serves as a nutrient and a building block to every cell in our bodies, what would the Living Water do to us? Jesus answered this question by saying “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again. But whoever drinks the water that I give him will never be thirsty again. But the water that I give him will become in him a spring of water [satisfying his thirst for God] welling up [continually flowing, bubbling within him] to eternal life.” JOHN 4:13-14 AMP
I pray that the Living Water will flow through you! May you never be “thirsty” again! As you drink of this water, sicknesses, lack, struggling, demonic attacks and stagnation will depart from your life in Jesus name! Come to the giver of Living Water today, and satisfy your thirsty soul.
