It’s estimated our bodies are 80% fluid. Apart from brains, bones, and a few organs, we’re walking water balloons!
Stop drinking water and see what happens. Coherent thoughts vanish. Skin gets clammy, and vital organs wrinkle.
Eyes need fluid to cry. Your mouth needs moisture to swallow and your joints need fluid to stay lubricated. Your body needs water the same way tires need air!
God wired you with thirst–a “low-fluid indicator.” Let your fluid level grow low, and watch the signals flare. Dry mouth. Achy head. Weak knees. Deprive your body of fluid and your body will tell you. Deprive your soul of spiritual water, and your soul will tell you.
Dehydrated hearts send desperate messages: Snarling tempers. Waves of worry.
Jesus said, “if anyone thirsts let him come to me and drink. He who believes in me, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water! John 4:14″
