The natural earth knows of the importance of fresh water. Access to fresh water helps prevent the spread of disease and death globally. However, fresh water is so often taken for granted through pollution, misuse, and lack of conservation. There has even been a creation of a Fresh Water Society specializing in educating and inspiring people to value, conserve and protect water sources. They are dedicated to train people to be Master Water Stewards. There is fresh water in the spirit and God is calling us to understand this river is his presence, to be fully aware, and fully submerge into this river.
A River Flowing
Then he showed me a river of the water of life, clear as crystal, coming from the throne of God and of the Lamb, in the middle of its street. On either side of the river was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit every month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
God is calling the bride of Christ to this river of living waters—which will ultimately heal the nations. The river of living water is in His presence. Psalm 16:11 tells us that there is a fullness of joy is His presence. This river is free flowing and we are invited to dive deep and it will produce great joy in our lives and will affect society around us.
A Bride Aware
The bride is becoming more aware of the desperate need in the Spirit for fresh waters. We are thirsty for this new outpouring and must become Master Water Stewards in the body of Christ to create a society of lovers of fresh water dedicated to inspire others to value, conserve and protect our spiritual fresh waters.
“He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.'” But this He spoke of the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; for the Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.
It truly is an Isaiah 60:1 time for the church—it is time to arise and shine for your light has come. It is time to fully plunge into the rivers of life without reservation and then arise and become Master Water Stewards for the dry and barren land. So many people are thirsty for these fresh waters, these healing waters that if the bride will become Master Water Stewards, it will literally quench the spiritual thirst of an entire generation. We are not just called to be ankle deep in these waters. We are not even called to just be waist deep and we were definitely not called to just be neck deep. We are called to be fully submersed, fully taken over, and relying fully on the Father to lead us in these waters.
“but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.”
Lord, we thank you that you are inviting us to become aware of the river of life that flows from your presence. Thank you for releasing that river through your children everyday. We ask that you make us more aware of your presence and the promises you have spoken over your children. We declare full submersion into the river of living waters, without restraint and without reservation. We ask for your grace to live as Master Water Stewards, where we can bring these waters to the dry and barren land. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
The Future is Bright,
