The well with living water
A few times God has been speaking about wells and source of living water through my spiritual father and uncles in destiny. Yesterday, God reminded me again. We are like wells. Wells that need to be filled with living water. Overflowing with living water.
John 4 teaches me a lot about how to become a true worshipper. The transition from a believer, to become a true follower of Christ. A new revelation that when I believe in Christ, I become His vessel to contain the living water. The living water talks about His Words and the Spirit. The more we hear, the more we believe, the more we see, then it transforms our minds until our lives become filled with the Truth as it overflows. Psalms 23:3. This is how God guides me in my spiritual journey, and building my spiritual life.
“He refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.” Psalms 23:3 NIV
Imagine yourself nowhere in the middle of the dessert. One thing people need to survive under the heatwave is water. Human body is composed of at least 50% water. When people are drained out, they will look for a source of fresh water. Not salted water, nor contaminated water. Salt water leads to high osmotic pressure preventing the kidney to produce urine, therefore causing more dehydration. Meanwhile contaminated water is toxic to our body. God's water is the purest of them all. Gives freshness to our Spirit, spreading to our soul and physical body. When our lives are like the wells of fresh water, people will be drawn towards us. People will sip through us just to get freshness from the living water that is running in us. As we share our living water, they too will become new wells of living water.
“The human spirit can endure in sickness, but a crushed spirit who can bear?" Proverbs 18:14 NIV
Knowing this, I learn to become that well of fresh water by diligently listening, reading, and meditating over God's Words from His house because as Proverbs say, "Who can bear a crushed spirit?" Only by the grace of God we have received salvation and only through Christ we gain access to our sanctuary, that hidden bunker behind the cross.
