Living Water

Each day will bring challenges but the Lord will show you how to persevere.. Today's lesson was about Living Water.... Connection to God is a must if we desire to have any kind of victory in this life... Some things to keep in mind as you continue your walk with Jesus... God is the Living Water that truly satisfies... True satisfaction comes from Him. He is our all in all. Just was we need to drink water, let it remind you of your need for the Living water

Isaiah 58:11 The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.

As I think of what the Living Water does, I like to think of a fountain that has layers on it.. As God fills me, the overflow effects someone else's life and he begins to fill them, their overflow effects someone else's life.. Just as water goes down the different layers of the fountain. We are to be so full of Christ that we overflow on people too... As I think of a well-watered garden, I think of something very nurtured, very fruitful, something that has deep roots and draws the living water from deep within.. We become this well nourished person when we spend time in the Word, our nourishment..
Stay in the Word, put into practice all that you learn... Draw your strength from the Lord and His word so that soon you will be a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.. Keep depending on the Lord... He will proclaim freedom for you who are a captive, He will give you a crown of beauty, and so much more... He will rebuild, restore and renew the places that have been long devastated..

Isaiah 60:1-4 The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion— to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor. They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations.

Keep on keeping on..
