Fountain of Living Water

Article written by Brother Bledsoe

For My people have committed a double evil: they have abandoned Me, the fountain of living water, and dug cisterns for themselves, broken cisterns that cannot hold water.
Jeremiah 2:13

True believers should not be waiting for “Showers of Blessing.” Cisterns depend on rain and there should never be “dry spells” in the Christian life. God said that He would be like an artesian well in the life of a believer. Artesian wells bubble forth with a cold, fresh, never-ending supply of water from deep in the earth, quenching any thirst and always satisfying. This is the picture of the spiritual refreshment that belongs to the person in whom the Holy Spirit resides.

Have you ever heard people say they are experiencing a dry spell in their Christian life? What are they saying? Are they saying that the Lord ran out of water? It should never cross your mind that the fountain of living waters residing within you should ever be reduced to a trickle. You don’t need to run all over the country trying to find sources of spiritual refreshment. Conferences, retreats, and books can all bring encouragement, but if you are a Christian, the source of living water already resides within you.

Finding Your Spiritual Refreshment

Have you exchanged the living fountain for man-made cisterns that cannot hold water? Why would you exchange an artesian well for a broken water tank? Artesian wells do not dry up. Broken cisterns do. If you are experiencing spiritual dryness right now, is it because you have been attempting to find your source of spiritual refreshment from man-made sources, which will fail you every time? Jesus extended an invitation to you when He said: “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink”.

Have you been refreshed by the living water only Jesus can provide? Jesus said in John 7:38-39,

“He that believes on me, as the scripture has said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.”

(But this He spoke of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.) Don’t allow anything of this world plug to up the flow. Invite the Holy Spirit to flow through you again. Amen!
