Divin’ in Daily

Stay fresh! Dive into God’s Word daily. Here’s one devotional. Check out the others in the sidebar.

Invited! 

“If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him (John 7:37-38, NIV).” 

There is a river where all are invited to dwell!

Live by the river! Sow where the Spirit of the Lord surges. Dig your roots deep in the banks and drink of its power and might. The river of God enriches our lives (Psalm 65:9). It extends peace (Isaiah 66:12). It restores the deserts of hearts with new life, life that overflows. Bring others to the river.

The river images in the Bible provide us with hope. They help us understand God’s character and power. Through their beauty, our desire for the Holy Spirit’s work in our life builds. We want to become “river dwellers” planting our roots in the bank and drinking from it. The cool, refreshing river effects our daily live. Through these images, we understand the sustaining power of the River of God in a parched landscape.

God brought Ezekiel to the river. He found it so deep and wide he couldn’t pass over. Along its banks, numerous large green trees grew. The river teemed with fish and life (Ezekiel 47; John 3:16).

From where did this river flow? From the sanctuary of the Lord. Waters issued out from under the threshold past the altar, outside the gates, and down the right side of the sanctuary (Ezekiel 47:1).

“And by the river upon its bank, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for food whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall its fruit be consumed; it shall bring forth new fruit according to its months, because their waters issued out of the sanctuary; and its fruit shall be for food, and its leaf for medicine (Ezekiel 47:12).”

Let’s dive deep into the workings of the Holy Spirit allowing the river of the Holy Spirit to flow out of our innermost. Let’s learn together how to drink from and dwell near the River of God. Invite everyone to come!
