Where is the living water?
I ask where is the Living Water in today's Church? I ask this because I look around and I see a lot of people preaching but I am not seeing the Living Water flowing like what the Bible tell us. It isn't just me that is seeing this, there is a lot of people starting to say something about God's power not being manifested. I have been asking God for some time now, 'Lord if I am sinful forgive me, if I am chasing after lusts of the flesh reveal it to me so I can repent. Clean out all impurities from my life so may be used by you in Your Fullness and Power, for Your Glory.'
Come men let us take a look at what the Bible says about where the Living Water could of went or why we do not see it today. We start off in Jeremiah 2:13 which says;
Jeremiah 2:13 - for my people have committed two evils: they have forsaken me, the fountain of living waters, and hewed out cisterns for themselves, broken cisterns that can hold no water.
Here the word tells us that God's people have committed two evils. That they have forsaken Him, the fountain of living waters and that they have hewed out cisterns for themselves. I ask you man of God, have you forsaken the Lord, the fountain of living waters? Have you trusted on your own understanding? Are you building your own kingdom? Are you leading people to follow after your own words?
Have you built your own cisterns that cannot hold any water? Foreign gods are broken containers; they cannot produce water, and they cannot hold the water poured into them. If you have hewed out idols or even hewed out self and placed them above God, according to the word you have committed evil. #repent
Jeremiah 17:13 tells us that that by forsaking the Lord we shall be put to shame. It says that those who turn away from Him will be written into the Earth, for they have forsaken the Lord. Why, Oh men of God WHY? Why do we turn from Him? Why do we find false treasure in the lusts of the flesh? What is so great here in this World to turn us from the Most High?
Jeremiah 17:13 - O LORD, the hope of Israel, all who forsake you shall be put to shame; those who turn away from you shall be written in the earth, for they have forsaken the LORD, the fountain of living water.
I pray as you read this the Lord moves on your heart. I pray that His Holy Spirit brings conviction to you if you have forsaken Him. I pray men that you will repent from your wickedness and turn to the name that is above all names. For you will either kneel before the name of Jesus here in this World or you will kneel before Him in judgement.
Say you, 'What now that I have repented, turned from my wickedness and submitted unto the Lord God Almighty?' Say you, 'What now?' I say men we ask the Lord for a drink of this Living Water! As we read in John 4:10 we shall ask the Lord of lords for a drink of this everlasting living water.
John 4:10 - Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you, ‘Give me a drink,’ you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water.”
You see the Lord will give he who asks. John 4:14 tells us that whoever drinks of this water (this living water) will never thirst again. Praise the name of Jesus! For He says "The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” Praise the Lord a spring of water welling up to eternal life, praise His holy name!
John 4:14 - but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
Do you thirst men? Are you parched, dry mouthed from the failed attempts to make this life on your own? Are you cotton mouthed in much need of a drink? Has your sin kept you away for so long you are in dire need of a drink of refreshment and peace? Oh men let us repent, and believe what Jesus says. For if we believe in Him as the Scripture has said, then out of our hearts will flow rivers of living water.
John 7:38 - Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’ ”
Oh men I pray this precious word of the Lord will sink deep into your soul. And cut deep into your being, revealing the Lord and His desire for you. His desire men is for you to believe in Him as the Scriptures says. His desire men is for you to have a spring of water welling up in you unto eternal life. Men His desire i s for our hearts to flow with rivers of Living Water! Praise Jesus!! I ask you men, where is the Living Water???
