TODAY'S DEVOTIONAL MESSAGE
Monday, 02 October 2023
I will draw rivers of living water to fill every drained, strained, and stagnant area in your life.
I, the Lord your God, will draw rivers of Living Water within Me, to fill you up to the brim. I will refresh every dry area in your life where you feel drained, strained, and stagnant.
My words are like rain and snow that descends from the sky, and it does not go back until the earth is watered. This is also true for My believers who are experiencing dryness in the areas of their life. I will make things grow and blossom, so you can continue to bear fruit for My people.
Valley of Dry Bones
During the time of Ezekiel, I had led him into the valley of dry bones. Where he was brought at that time does not have any signs of life.
You may be in that season where things in your life are drying up, almost parched. You may feel that everything is dull, frustrating, or stuck. You may be thinking that the rains have stopped and your growth become stagnant. You may have found yourself constantly complaining every day about the kind of life you live.
This is the exact vision I have shown Ezekiel—a dry and lifeless place. But Ezekiel did not ask Me to take him out of that place. Instead, he asked Me to move into where he was standing.
The moment that I have stepped in, I gave Ezekiel the power to speak life to the dry bones. As he obeyed My instruction, and he saw the bones come together, with skin forming to cover the body. You see, words kill and words give life. They are either poison or fruit and it is up to you to choose.
Let the Water Flow
You have been taught to drink water when you are parched or water your plants when the soil is dry. But when you talk about the drought that you experience in your life, you find solutions and answers around you. You forget about Me, the Source of life.
Instead of looking for answers on how you should live your life on self-help books, I want you to open My word. Read the scripture. A few minutes of your time reading and meditating on My word will not cost you anything.
Remember, I am the resurrection and the life. If you want to bring life again, lay down every single burden at My feet. Draw closer to Me, I will let My living water, flow into your life so you will be refreshed with a new hope.
No matter how difficult it is to set a time to pray, do it still. A 5-minute prayer every morning will not hurt your busy schedule. If you don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. I will pray with you and for you. I know you far better than you know yourself. There is power in words that you speak, the prayers that you utter, and the obedience to My ways.
Do not forget to give thanks in all circumstances. You will be surprised how it will change the course of your life. I assure you that during this dry season, My strength will shine through and everything will work for My purpose and glory.
Reflect on these words today
I will open rivers on the bare heights, and fountains in the midst of the valleys. I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.
— Isaiah 41:18
Thus says the Lord God to these bones: Behold, I will cause breath[a] to enter you, and you shall live.
— Ezekiel 37:5
