He is like a tree planted by streams of water… --Psalm 1:3
Yesterday we noted one of the benefits of situating ourselves near the waters of Jesus Christ, stability. Today we’ll look at another benefit: vitality.
A true man or woman of God is energized. And it’s more than just standing up on your own two feet. It’s being energized and empowered by the Holy Spirit.
I believe “by streams of waters” speaks of the ministry of the Holy Spirit in the believer’s life. For Jesus said, “Whoever believes in me… out of his heart will flow rivers of living water” (John 7:38). And so the man or woman of God is to be full of the Holy Spirit.
I know there are times in my life when I’m exhausted, both mentally and physically. And it’s in these times that I’ve experienced renewed energy and vitality from the Holy Spirit to continue the work or task that God has called me to do. And He can do the same for you!
If you find yourself weary today, it’s my prayer that you will invite God’s Spirit to revitalize you inside and out… and that you will experience the vitality that only He can bring!
A TRUE MAN OR WOMAN OF GOD IS FULL OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
