Water of God!

Water of God!

     This morning as I was cleaning my shamy at work I began trying to relate the water coming out of that faucet to the Kingdom of God. What God began clarifying for me, was that water in its purest form has so many advantages. In fact water in and of itself is very difficult to be used negatively when it comes to our bodies. Our bodies need water to survive, some water taste better than others, but in its pure form water is water, and water is life for us. The same goes with the Word of God. In order to find true life, a life of everlasting purpose that not only benefits us, but also everyone around us we must get to the source… the Word of God. 

ETERNALLY REFRESHING! John 4 verse 14

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1 NIV

As this scripture clearly points the Word of God is not just a book. This book is the thoughts, plans, promises, instructions and commands of the great I AM. God refers to himself as I AM. This name confused me for a while, but think about it before reading this next verse.

God replied to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM. Say this to the people of Israel: I AM has sent me to you.” Exodus 3:14 NLT

So now that we have a little background of the true author, and power of this mighty Book lets look at how this Book can truly shape and redefine our lives.

     The water that cleans my shamy at work is unable to truly get down to the inner fibers and remove all dirt and grime. However we know that the Bible has the power to penetrate, to cut between soul and spirit, and to judge and expose our true thoughts and desires (Hebrews 4:12). Nothing on earth can achieve that power. What I’m trying to express is when we dig into this Word we will get answers. And these answers are not for us to keep in our heads, they are to be put into action. These actions will display Gods work.

Jesus replied, “But even more blessed are all who hear the word of God and put it into practice.” Luke 11:28 NLT

Water cannot be diluted because it is as simple and plain as it gets. But you can add things to water to change its original qualities. For example water by itself will hydrate you, however coffee made with water will dehydrate you. The same goes with the Word of God, we can’t add things to the word. Nor can we dillute it, by picking and choosing what part of it we want to follow. If we follow the Word as a whole we are using it how it was intended.

But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.” John 4:14 NLT

    This message was intended to strengthen us all, to point to the source of which we should turn for all things. This source is tried and true and has never been proven wrong, it may not necessarily work in our timing. But that does not mean it failed, it means we gave up.

Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will never dissappear. Luke 21:33 NLT

And the seed that fell on good soil represents those who hear and accept God’s word and produce a harvest of thirty, sixty, or even a hundred times as much as had been planted!”  Mark 4:20 NLT

Heavenly Father, I pray that this word will bring strength, correction and guidance to myself and all who read this. Teach me how to make time for you. Teach me to understand your word. Bring clarity to my life through your word. Amen.

God Bless.
