Jesus, the Fountain of Living Waters

 

Jesus is the truth, the way, and the life.  He is the source of truth; the example for the way to live; and the reflection of an abundant blessed life.

Many people are thirsty. Thirsty for love, joy, peace and fulfillment.  However, their thirst can only be quenched by Jesus – the Thirst Quencher.

“Now on the final and most important day of the Feast, Jesus stood, and He cried in a loud voice, If any man is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink! 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 7:37-38)

You must first believe and continue to believe, trust, and depend on Jesus to supply you with whatever you need to quench your thirst.  Remember the Word of God says, “And my God will liberally supply (fill to the full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”  (Philippians 4:19)

Don’t put your trust in man or woman because they will let you down.  Put all of your trust in Jesus, who will never disappoint you. He is always there when you need Him.  He will never leave you or forsake you.  He is always there when you need someone to talk to and lead you on the path of righteousness.

JESUS IS THE ROCK

You are the Rock on which I stand.

You will lead me all the way to the promise land.

I can trust you without a doubt.

You bring blessings all about.

In the morning and throughout the day.

In your Word I will trust and obey.

LOOK UP

Look up from whence you have come.  God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that you can ask or think.  You need only come.

Come and humble yourself at the throne of grace, and you will invoke the presence, love, and mercy of God.  He is longing for you to spend some time with Him because he desires to be close and intimate with you – His child.

You must make the time to talk and listen to God; not just keep on running your regular busy schedule without regard to your Master’s pleasure.

For in spending time with God, you will experience love, joy, peace and great intimacy (closeness) beyond measure.

You will receive instructions and know what to do and who to talk to.

Remember to come boldly to the throne of grace,

and on mountain tops and higher levels you will be placed.

Don’t be discouraged on your Christian walk,

You have a Father, Friend, Encourager, and Comforter with whom to talk.

Don’t be anxious or shy,

But allow God to shape and mold you into a beautiful butterfly.
