“He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” – John 7:38
Few in the modern world understand the signficance of what is being said here. While indeed Christ speak of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, the phrase ‘living water’ had a meaning to the people of His time that we tend to miss.
‘Living water’ also refers to what some call structured water, which has
has measurably different characteristics including: molecular stability, a negative electrical charge, greater viscosity, molecular alignment, and an enhanced ability to absorb certain spectra of light. It is believed that when water molecules take on this organized molecular structure, it has a significant impact on health and that it appears to be necessary for life.
What is important here is that God’s intention is for what flows out from you to be ordered, structured, and expressly full of HIS life. Very often the saints are gifted, and very obviously and powerfully so, but lack structure and order in how their gifts are administered, and there’s good reason for this. In the above scripture, ‘believeth’ is the Greek pitseuw, which implies continuing belief.
It is not enough to merely believe, but we must CONTINUE to believe in Him. This provokes the questin, ‘just how far do you believe Him?’ Many of will believe God to an extent, or we commit our trust in certain areas and circumstances, and in many ways we hold back and hold out on God, choosing to trust in circumstances, systems, people, ourselves, and even abilities, and all of this misplaced trust is very often what ‘blocks’ the flow of the life of Christ in us.
This morning, I challenge you to BELIEVE in Him! Believe Him for your healing. Believe Him in your work, beieve everything He said, believe that His will for you is GOOD, believe His every promise is certain, believe that He is LORD of EVERY part of your life.
BELIEVE, and His living water will flow out of you like never before.
