Troubled by concerns for a loved one, I left a message with a friend asking if she would join in prayer. Within minutes she called to bring encouragement and support. And, then she prayed. During her prayer, she mentioned as believers we aren’t just given a stream of living water, we are given streams of living water. Oh, my. I knew this, but her prayer caused streams to bubble up with renewed truth.
One of my favorite things is to sit by a river or a stream and spend time with God. So, when I thought of the verses in Psalm 1:1-3, I pictured myself happily planted by a stream. However, the verse says streams of water. “How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, nor sit in the seat of scoffers! But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season and its leaf does not wither; and in whatever he does, he prospers.” ~ Psalm 1:1-3 (NASB)
And Jesus said, “He who believes in Me [who cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me] as the Scripture has said, from his innermost being shall flow [continuously] springs and rivers of living water.” ~ John 7:38 (AMPC)
Oh, how this thrills my soul. The influx of life-giving water we are given through Jesus streams into our souls, planting us in the streams of His living water so that our souls gush out with springs and rivers of living water.
Living water grace that washes away your sins.
Living water love for your lonely, hurting heart.
Living water help for your every need.
Living water wisdom for your every decision.
Living water fearlessness cast out by God’s living love.
Living water intercession for your every prayer.
Living water mercies for every new morning.
Living water that helps you stand firm in a world shaken by the enemy.
Living water comfort for all your pain.
Living water courage for every discouragement.
Living water that protects, restores and renews.
Living water lifeline for every day of your life.
Living water, Red Sea dividing, water walking, storm-stilling power that never leaves you powerless.
Happy soul-dance! Living water streams toward you, in you, and through you. The soul-giving, life-living water flows, gushes, and forever streams with rivers from our generous, loving God.
“For I will pour out water on the thirsty land and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out My Spirit on your offspring and My blessing on your descendants; and they will spring up among the grass like poplars by streams of water.” ~ Isaiah 44:3-4 (NASB)
“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” ~ Isaiah 43:19 (NIV)
“There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy dwelling places of the Most High.” ~ Psalm 46:4 (NASB)
