“He that believeth on me, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” John 13:38
HOPE FOR TODAY!
Let’s talk some more about the “Living Water”. Imagine a stream or a river if you will, and imagine it’s overflow as it moves forward. A river never stops moving. Though obstacles may stand in it’s way, a river or stream will continue to go forward. It will go through the obstacle, or go over it, or even go around it, but it will never turn back and go the other way! It doesn’t stop and it knows no reverse, this is how we will be as Christians, always pressing forward toward the mark of God’s high calling, as it is written,
“I press toward the mark, for the price of the high calling of God through Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:14
We must press forward! Does life seem to be stuck in a rut for you? We must press on despite what it appears to us to be! Despite the obstacles in our life we must push through them, over them, or around them. God will make a way where there seems to be no way! Just like the river or the stream that presses through these barriers towards the larger body of water that it is called to be with, so shall we be pressing forward to our final and higher destination.
PRESS FORWARD TOWARDS VICTORY…
We must learn this by studying these rivers of life, that they are called “Living” because they are alive! We also must be alive and persistent, not allowing the waves of our life to present barriers that we refuse to negotiate! As Christians we are more than overcomers! These obstacles cannot keep us from moving forward. We will go through them, over them, around them, by any means necessary to reach His hand extended to receive us!
As Jesus waits with his arms open wide to receive us into His kingdom we must realize that we are called, and called not as infidels as some might say, but we are called as His children full of authority and power, fully able to reach our goal! Nothing can prevent us from moving toward His mark!
Greater is He, (King Jesus) that is in you than he,(worm) that is in this world!
