His Living Water in Me

Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life” (John 4:13-14, NIV).

If I drink of the water that He provides, I will never be spiritually thirsty. His living water not only soothes my shattered spirit, but it heals my broken heart because it is His life living, filling, and following through me. It is a spring of promise that wells us in my spirit and constantly flows to bring abundant life now and eternal life later.

My living water is His Word. In the very beginning was the Word. The Word was with God, and it was God. (John 1:1). If I fill my life with this living Word, it accomplishes what God desires for my life.(Isaiah 55:10-11) It trains me to live a life that is fulfilled in every way. (2 Timothy 3:16-17). Faith will grow in me as I fill my being with His Word...with His message (Romans 10:17).
"Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness," He whispers, "they shall be filled." 

"Oh Lord," I cry, "just as a deer pants for streams of water, my soul pants for you. My soul thirsts only for you." 
If I continually drink of His living waterthe Word of GodHis truthHis Spirit, I will be filled. This is a thirst that shall always be satisfied. No weapon of the enemy that comes against me will succeed. No lie will find soil in which to take root. I believe because I have faith that I  have discovered in knowing His Word. In Him lies are conquered and truth prevails. His living water lives in me.
