A precious sister-in-Christ recently posted some photos from a trip she took, with her full permission, I am using three of them. Thank you, Sandy for your generosity!
My church has quite often spoken about God’s River. How it is present all around us and yet we don’t all jump in and receive Its blessings. Well, today I wish to address some new aspects of rivers that I myself had not meditated upon before. (Thank you, Pastor Vera Segundo, for your awesome message on Sunday!)
1 – The river (a river) will flow where it wants to flow!
2 – It makes a path for itself, cutting out places for itself as it twists and turns through reeds, rocks, etc.
3 – It will make even the roughest rocks smooth as it flows steadily along its route!
So it is with our lives . . . IF . . . we allow ourselves to get in The River of God’s Love. It will lead us to the destination He has for us, shaping us as we go, smoothing out our rough edges, creating vessels that will allow His Beauty to shine through. But we DO need to – by faith – not only take a step into The River, but to completely immerse ourselves within Its powerful flow. It has a planned path, a planned destination, a planned purpose. It brings forth energy, power, LIFE – healing flows within Its banks! Mercy overflows its banks! Are YOU ready to jump in? Are you still dangling your feet? Ah, my friends, the water (God’s Living Water) is marvelous – come on in! You will never be the same!
