Today, I was watching the beautiful Yakima River flow past our hotel room moving downstream to join with the mighty Columbia. In the river I saw an image. It was the image of a single gallon of water floating downstream hidden in the middle of the river’s massive flow. That single gallon carried with it an assignment to refresh a weary soul.
At this time of year, the Yakima River is flowing at the rate of 1,000 cubic feet per second. The gallon of water only filled about one square foot of space in the middle of the other 999 cubic feet of water moving downstream. That single gallon of water is not insignificant because it is part of something much larger and flows within the same potential as the larger river. Contained in that single gallon of water is supernatural refreshment that will renew you enough to begin moving forward once again to engage the next leg of your journey.
Today, step into the river of God’s presence and drink your portion. The dry feelings that you have recently experienced have caused you to dehydrate emotionally and spiritually. This fresh drink of God’s presence will immediately rehydrate your life and transform that negative experience. The immense river of God’s presence that carried your refreshment will now begin to flow from within your life to your family, your city and to the nations of the world. The refreshing drink you are about to take will have unimaginably positive consequences.
“If you are thirsty, come to me! If you believe in me, come and drink! For the Scriptures declare that rivers of living water will flow from within your innermost being.” John 7:37-38
