John 7:37-39

37 On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. 38 He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” 39 But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.

If we look at the lives of Israelites who began their journey to the Promised Land from Egypt, they only know that they are going to the land of Canaan with a journey of few days. But, it ended up in forty years of journey because of their unbelief.  Many of them who started the journey did not reached their goal. They dried out in the wilderness because of the lack of faith and disobedience. Likewise, our river should not dry up in the course of our life. We have to be overflowing until our end in this earth to enter into His inheritance. Many believers can identify themselves into these three categories:

  1. Overflowing river all the day
  2. Overflowed once and lost their bubbling and dried up somewhere in the middle
  3. Never overflowed but wandering with a thirst

So each day let us live in the fullness of God in Christ through the Holy Spirit. Each day we run towards our goal. Let our river be always an overflowing one along the banks and through that, many can receive their healing and find the true living God.
