John 7:38 - "He that believeth on Me, as the Scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water."
We as children of God are to bring forth life and fruit that was birthed and begun in God.
The word believe is in no way a shallow belief, but one of complete trust and total reliance on. Jesus is not only One we trust in, but He must become our trust. And out of this place of trust we will find the abundance of God flowing through us in every area of our lives.
Daniel 11:32 - "The people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits."
Isaiah 26:3 AMP - "You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind ....is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You.
As we are born again, we are blessed with His extravagant love and the privilege of knowing Him and being filled with Him, His love, His riches, His promises, His healing, His restoration and becoming one with all He and possess.
This place is a continuous flow from Him to us, through us to others -- this is a river that never runs dry, and as we learn to bask in this river we will never run dry.
THE RIVERS OF GOD
Genesis 2 speaks of the river that flows through the Garden of Eden. This river was split into four rivers, and each river's name describes it as bursting forth with life, fruitfulness, and abundance.
The river mentioned in Ezekiel 47 speaks of it flowing from the temple, and everywhere it flows it brings forth life. There will always be fruit on these trees and new crops of fruit will spring forth every month. There is never a season where fruit is not abounding. This fruit will be for food and the leaves are for healing.
Revelation 22 speaks of the river with the water of life, clear as crystal, that flows from the throne of God and of the Lamb. As it flows, on each side of the river grows a tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, with a fresh crop each month. The leaves are used for medicine to heal the nations.
Why would we not go deeper in Him? If we think we have experienced all of Him and understand all of His Kingdom, we are deceived. We will continue to discover our Lord and His love forever.
In Ephesians 3 it speaks of comprehending spiritually that which in the natural we cannot. But the more we experience Him and His love. the more we find ourselves consumed and realizing there is always more.
A scriptural example of our union is in Ezekiel 1. In this chapter it shares about the living creatures and how they are filled with eyes, and they are only moved by the Holy Spirit. They move when He moves, and nothing else moves them. This should be so with us. They are filled with eyes, always seeing what the Father and Son are doing and moving beautifully and in total union with the Holy Spirit of God. This is how we bring heaven to earth.
We truly are anointed sons and daughters of the Living God -- the river of God flows in and through us as Believers to bring forth the advancement of God's Kingdom through the fulfillment of God's PURPOSE FOR OUR LIVES.
Let's pray for the earth to be "filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea." (Habakkuk 2:14)
Lord God, thank you that I am one with you. As I am so grateful and filled with joy, I desire to flow with You as one, even as You, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are One. Thank you for moving through me as your purpose for my life is fulfilled. In Jesus name, Amen.
