Be appalled at this, you heavens, and shudder with great horror,” declares the Lord. “My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken me, the spring of living water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water. Jeremiah 2:12-13 New International Version
The spring of living water is the Holy Spirit.
He brings renewed life, strength and healing into our spiritual lives. Because of this we live a life of peace, contentment and joy.
Yes we go through trials and tribulations, sorrows and snares but we have the Holy Spirit to comfort, strengthen and heal us through out them all.
The Holy Spirit blesses us with wisdom for the true source of the meaning of live which blesses us with purpose in life.
He fills us with peace and contentment with the knowledge that we are cared for by the Supreme God whom loves us so very much.
The broken cisterns is fleshly desires and the water they cannot hold is spiritual satisfaction which is only accomplished by a loving relationship with Jehovah.
This leads to many addictions such as alcoholism, materialism (the buy, buy, buy syndrome. Yes you feel happy when you buy it but then it quickly fades and you are left enslaved to the banks and credit cards to pay off the debt).
Sexual promiscuously (which leads to sexual diseases and baby murder- abortion, broken marriages and numerous other maladies).
Drug abuse which is a living hell and slowly drags you into an eternal one.
Can any of you add to the list?
These are all sad substitutes for the only thing that brings meaning, love, peace and joy to our lives.
Of course true Christians know the only source for drinking pure water is the Holy Spirit which lives in us every day of our lives on this planet.
So which water are you drinking?
Now here is the kicker: Do you notice this is aimed at Jehovahs people? This is not for those of the world but regarding those who call themselves Christians.
They have walked away from Jehovahs blessing to satisfy the lust of the world which they should know is filthy.
Have you been feeling that Jehovah is far from you, that there is no satisfaction in your walk with Christ?
Perhaps you need to go to Jehovah in prayer to convict you where you have strayed and the steps necessary to renew you love affair with Him.
Prayer: Please KalEl (voice of God) bless me to always be attentive to Your loving voice and to be obedient unto it. In so doing I will be blessed with a never ending supply of Your life giving water every moment of every day. I humbly request this in the name of He who is the true living water Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
