During my time sitting next to a creek in the woods a verse in Ezekiel came to mind. It was revealed to Ezekiel during a vision God gave him about the river flowing from the temple. As I was enjoying my time with the Lord, it suddenly came to me like a light bulb turning on! God had placed me beside a trickling creek that runs into the lake, which, by the way, is named Hancock, which is my maiden name! That little fresh water creek, which was only about ankle deep, was like the Holy Spirit pouring into me! In the vision He gave Ezekiel, He was calling him to go deeper into the river, to the point that it was over his head and it couldn’t be passed through. Where this fresh water flowed, the trees along the bank produced fruit. The Holy Spirit flowing into you makes everything fresh and alive, producing fruit! Pay attention! God is speaking to you all the time, are you tuned in?
And on the banks, on both sides of the river, there will grow all kinds of trees for food. Their leaves will not wither, nor their fruit fail, but they will bear fresh fruit every month, because the water for them flows from the sanctuary. Their fruit will be for food, and their leaves for healing." Ezekiel 47:12
