Is Your Stream Flowing?
A trickling stream is easily polluted and the flow stopped. A strong stream washes away the pollutants and keeps its bed clean. The stronger the flow the cleaner the stream bed. How is your flow?
" On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified. " John 7: 37-39"
The stream of the Lord is open to "any man/ woman" that thirsts! Thirst for water is more intense than the that of a person's hunger for food. Regardless of your condition, regardless of what you have done or not done in the past the Lord wants you to come to him today. Cast away all of your hinderances. Don't let anything or anyone hinder you from coming to Jesus who is the source of living waters. How do you come to Jesus you may ask? This process can begin in your heart today as you begin to believe and trust in Jesus. 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 As you believe, you are making a personal commitment to the Lord Jesus to serve Him.
Only Jesus is the source of this eternal drink. Only you can decide to come and drink for yourself. No one can make this decision for you. If you come to Jesus and drink of HIS living waters then out of you will become a fountain of living waters for others who are thirsty and dying all around you. Though you Jesus will draw these thirsty souls unto HIM and in turn use you to rescue a soul from the flames of hell.
The rivers of living water that Jesus was talking about referred to the infilling of the Holy Spirit that His disciples had not yet experienced but where to soon experience on the day of Pentecost. Now that Jesus has been glorified and the Holy Spirit has come upon the earth you can experience this infilling today if you will call upon the Lord in your hunger and your thirsty soul. He will come and fill you and make you whole again! Jesus has sent the Holy Spirit and He will be inside you as a wellspring of living waters and He will flow out of you as mighty rushing rivers.
