“But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” John 4:14
At Christian Retreat you can view a multimedia presentation, formerly at a World’s Fair, called “Thirst for Life.” It depicts the human body’s need for physical water and the soul’s thirst for spiritual water. Have you learned to drink from your spiritual well?
If your spirit is dry, you may have to DIG A NEW WELL. Do not camp on old contention and strife; move on. “Enlarge the place of thy tent. . . .” (Isaiah 54:2) Do not look back. “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” (II Corinthians 5:17)
You may need to learn to SPEAK TO THE ROCK… that is, that obstacle or hardened heart. Do not “strike” at it in your flesh. As Moses was commanded by God to “speak” to the rock to obtain water in Numbers 20:8, so you must use God’s mighty weapon of warfare— confession—to pull down strongholds in your life.
Finally, you must learn to DRAW LIVING WATER FROM THE WELL. How? Through worship, in spirit and in truth. “… if any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.” (John 7:37b)
“Your prophet foretold that ‘with joy [I] will draw water from the wells of salvation.* Heavenly Father, refresh me today with Your Living Water. In Jesus’ Name, amen.”
*Isaiah 12:3 (NIV)
