What Say You?

“On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.”

John 7:37-39

The word ‘flow’ is defined as –

a smooth uninterrupted movement or progress.

It is a picture of unimpeded movement.

But much in our lives can impede the flow of the Living Waters Jesus spoke of.

Doubt, fear, unbelief, skepticism, unforgiveness (to name just a few) are some examples of what can block or interrupt the flow.

The word ‘stagnant’ is defined as –

 without inflow and outflow

One could legitimately say that the definition of stagnant is the opposite of flow.

Is God’s Living Water flowing through you to others like water flowing in a stream or has your spiritual life become stagnant like a pond?

God wants to remove from you whatever is impeding the flow of His Spirit through you.

Does He have your permission to do so?

Yes, to be sure – He will not move against your will.

It comes down to you.

What say you?
