S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
“Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”
These are the words of our blessed Lord as He spoke clearly to the people in the temple one day. He told them that if any of them believed in Him, “Rivers Of Living Water” would flow from their innermost being. Of course Jesus was speaking of the Holy Spirit who was to come.
I was thinking this AM about rivers. A river, because it is constantly moving, is continually cleaning itself of impurities. Because it is fresh and clean it houses healthy food, enough even for a whole village. In this contemporary time in which we live, it can provide electricity for an entire region. That’s the power of a river. However, this passage was a foretelling by Jesus of the precious Holy Spirit, who had not been given until after Jesus’ death, burial, resurrection, and ascension into heaven. When the Holy Spirit came, real life, spiritual nourishment, and POWER came as a result. Think about it, 2,000 years after this gift was given we in this present age are still receiving “Rivers Of Living Water” in our innermost being, flowing in the deepest recesses of our soul.
Thank You for the precious Holy Spirit. Thank You that even this AM I can feel power in the deepest part of my life because of Your wonderful gift of the Holy Spirit. Amen
