Each time our Board gathers, we spend the first portion of the evening in scripture & prayer. Grateful for the following devotional shared by Millie Blacklock, on the importance of God’s living water in our lives.
LET THAT MIGHTY RIVER FLOW!
When God created us he made us dependent on oxygen, and food, and light, and water ... and he supplied all of these things for us in abundance. He also created us with spiritual needs, and again his resources are abundant. One of the basic needs in our lives is water.
One of my favorite things to do when I visit the ocean is to sit and watch the waves roll in and break on the rocks. What awesome power! And just think of all the life that is found in the ocean!
Many times I have hiked through the Rocky Mountains and enjoyed the peacefulness and the awesome beauty of crystal clear lakes, and majestic waterfalls.
I have never been lost and thirsty in a desert, but I can imagine how it would feel to find a little spring, or a small creek, and how good the water would taste as it quenched my thirst.
The Bible has a lot to say about water. . .
