O Lord, the hope of Israel, All who forsake You will be put to shame. Those who turn away on earth will be written down, Because they have forsaken the fountain of living water, even the Lord. — Jeremiah 17:13
O Lord, our hope, I pray earnestly for those souls who forsake you. During this holy week may their eyes be opened to see the resurrected King. Help them to caste aside their shame and come to the living water. You Lord are the eternal fountain that flows within us so that we thirst no more.
I pray that our churches will be filled not only with the lost this Easter morning but also with Your Holy Spirit who draws all souls to You. May the call to salvation be heard clearly and the call to repentance obeyed. I hope and pray for thirsty hearts that pant for the living water. Call all to repentance dear Lord.
During this week I pray that we all come humbly to the cross and lay our sin and shame there and rise up renewed and full of rejoicing because You are risen!!!! I pray that we, Your children, come to church with gladness and rejoicing desiring to worship the risen King!
Are you looking forward to celebrating Resurrection Sunday?
. . . “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’” — John 7:37-38
. . . They have forsaken Me, The fountain of living waters, . . . — Jeremiah 2:13
Some of the sadest words in the Bible are “They have forsaken Me..”. When I think of our Creator who made us in His image looks upon us with love and we forsake Him, it hurts my heart. We ignore Him, put others and things before Him, disregard His word, and are not thankful for all He has given us. One of those things He has given is living water.
God gives every person an internal thirst for Him. We try to satisfy that thirst with other things – the list is endless – and the thirst is endless unless it is satisfied by the One who put the thirst there. Jesus is the fountain of living water and He freely gives to those who seek Him. The great thing is that the water is ever flowing. This water satisfies our thirst as we continuously seek the fountain. As we drink of it the flow of living water is so abundant that it overflows to everyone around us. The Living Water touches others through us as we seek Him.
Make a difference in your life and those around you by drinking the living water.
