The ocean possesses a quality that eludes reason. Besides its offering of beauty; it soothes; it heals; and some how, it even has the ability to remind us of who we are.
Consider the rush of emotions as you stand at the water’s edge, and how it brings out of you a unique and healing experience. Whether it be ocean or stream, living water brings aromas that mysteriously renew, and sights that miraculously invigorate. Truly, the artistic beauty of such creative scenes enlivens a part of us that cannot be touched by anything man-made.
Now, consider what Jesus may have inferred when He said, “Whoever believes in me, as the scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” (John 7:39, ESV) At salvation, as the Holy Spirit fills us and flows through us, are we not meant to become the atmosphere of supernatural waters – the place where healing and restoration begins? Imagine the potential of what God has placed in you!
If you’ve been born again, allow God’s vision of living waters to increase through you. You are His refreshing in the earth. You represent the waters edge. You are the sound that reminds people of the beauty of God’s creative love.
Let the rivers of living water flow!
