<<water source>>

This is where water gushes unaided from the ground as opposed to wells that requires human intervention to obtain the life-sustaining commodity. Jesus said, from the inner being of those who believe in Him would come ‘springs of living water’ – a natural outflow of divinely anointed life to minister for Him (Jn 7:38). Are others refreshed by the flow of godly vitality that comes from within me or am I bringing forth what is foul tasting? What is truly of God should create a thirst in those around about and they will want to come and drink too (Jn 7:37).

God said, “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up…” (Isa 43:19). This is His doing, not requiring strenuous effort by us to bring forth results. In His sovereign capacity God sometimes initiates events of which we have little understanding. He may still involve us but we can be assured He has the ultimate responsibility and capability and we need not fear.
