October 16

I’m intrigued by the waterfall beside the cabin. One thing that can be seen is two small creeks that run into a small lake that then spills over to create the cascade of the waterfall. You would expect that a raging river would make such as this, but that is not the case for this fall. What is the explanation for it? The lake is merely a pool that holds the water before it is funneled toward a dam that directs it to run in a specific direction, which, in our case, is right by our cabin. It creates such beautiful scenery that I can hardly get enough of it. If you think about it, that’s how the Holy Spirit works; he begins as a trickle when you first become saved, but as you increase in the knowledge of God, your faith increases and in turn the Spirit within you advances. The sound is soothing, and because it’s flowing down from a mountain, it’s cold, crisp, and refreshing. I hope to someday become like a gushing waterfall, spilling over, and flowing into a raging river of living water. It’s a worthy goal, and will be accomplished as long as I keep my eyes on God. Consider setting a spiritual goal, and watch as God works with you to achieve his purpose, and sends a rushing flow of living water that spills on everyone you meet.

On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’” John 7:37-38
