How many of us on a hot day would just love to have a cup of cold water or maybe stop at your favorite coffee shop for an iced coffee? Perhaps your refreshment is a soda pop or glass of iced tea. God is our 'refreshment' all the time. He says "Come to me all you who are weary and are heavy laden and I will give you rest." (See Matthew 11:28) He is the ultimate 'rest stop' with the best refreshment for your spirit and soul.
In cowboy days the horses would need a drink of water from the stream as well as their riders. Back then the water was safe to drink right out of a stream or brook. There may be a few safe places today but I am not sure where they are. Jesus is the 'living water' that is there for us,never runs dry, never stagnates and is always pure and ready for the taking.
Jeremiah 17:3 calls Jesus the 'living water'. John 4:10 says " Jesus answered her, If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.” He was referring of course to the living water, "Jesus". Whoever believes in Jesus will be refreshed by this living water that never runs dry. John7:38 says "Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”
How about you? Do you need refreshment today? Try drinking from the well that never runs dry.
PRAYER: Dear Lord we thank you for the refreshment that we get only when we trust in you and come to you. Thanks for being the living water to give us everlasting life. In Jesus Name. Amen.
