Jesus said, “Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them” (John 7:38).

Have you ever felt that “river of living water” flowing through your being? Jesus promised us that this is the way that it will be.

I was doing yard work with an old and very long hose. Even though the water pressure was strong coming out of the tap, the minute that the hose got tangled and crimped, the flow just absolutely stopped. Sometimes that’s what happens to you and me. We get too busy; maybe there’s a build up of bitterness; too much walking in the “natural” mind, or just letting things slip that we know need to be fixed, but we’re too busy to fix it. Then – BAM! The flow stops, even though the water is still turned on.

Jesus promised “rivers of living water” for you and I, as heirs, sons, daughters, and as friends. If you’re not experiencing that river in and through you today, go to God and ask him, “Hey, what is this blockage? Help me to remove this Lord.”

Let’s let that river of living water flow from us. We need it and the people around us need it. It’s our inheritance as heirs of His eternal kingdom.
