“Living Water Flows”
Suddenly my wrestling ceased. Only moments before I had questioned, “Why go to Staten Island? Why not just minister in South Sacramento?” But God’s answer “Living Water Flows” went so deep that it uprooted the doubts and questions, and replaced them with love, joy, peace and excitement!
What does “Living Water Flows” mean to me? Water that is poured into a basin without an outlet becomes stagnant. An outlet is required to keep the water moving and healthy. The same is true of God’s work in our lives and in our region. As God pours in, there needs to be an outlet, an expression with which we are allowing His work in us to bless others through us.
Ultimately, I see “living water” as God’s love. Just as physically we shrivel up without water, even so emotionally and spiritually we wither in the absence of His agape love.
So it is that in October 2015 SacramentoPRAYS had the profound privilege of taking the beautiful work God is doing in the Sacramento Region, and sharing it on Staten Island, New York. While the results are beyond the scope of anything we are capable of understanding or measuring, the supernatural impact was definitely seen as captives were set free to the glory of God, in Jesus’ name. Perhaps the most surprising part was that when I returned, I noted the magnificent blessing of a greater infill and flowing through of God’s love, in particular toward those closest to me. Hallelujah!
How is God’s love flowing through you today?
