Those Streams of Living Water

It has been the experience of some great souls that the Spirit actually rests the human organism into which He enters. The Bible would seem to support this belief. Could this be what Isaiah had in mind when he wrote,

till the Spirit is poured upon us from on high, and the desert becomes a fertile field, and the fertile field seems like a forest.

Justice will dwell in the desert and righteousness live in the fertile field. The fruit of righteousness will be peace; the effect

of righteousness will be quietness and confidence forever. My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes,

in undisturbed places of rest. Though hail flattens the forest and the city is leveled completely, how blessed you will be,

sowing your seed by every stream, and letting your oxen and donkeys range free (32:15-20).

Maybe we have been missing something very wonderful and very necessary. It might be well if we gave the matter some prayerful attention. Who knows but we may discover a secret of health long hidden from the rank and file of Christians. And God knows we need it.


'Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.' By this he meant the Spirit . . . John 7:38-39b


By "streams of living water" Jesus meant the Spirit. We have received the Spirit. He dwells within. By submitting to His control we may experience those "streams of living water."


Lord, I want to fully yield to the Spirit's control. In Jesus' name.
