SCRIPTURE?: “Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.” – Isaiah 55:1.
Water is life is a popular saying in our contemporary times. Of course, water is life! From biological and physiological contexts, it has been established that seventy-five percent of our bodily composition is water. Our cells, tissues, organs, systems, blood etc need water to function well. The human brain also needs water to function effectively. Water in the body regulates and maintains temperature and all our bodily functions.
Now, imagine what will happen to a person whose body lacks sufficient water. The state of insufficient water in the body is called dehydration. This could lead to serious health issues if not properly handled. Physical dehydration is dangerous to our well-being.
You need to know that as there is physical dehydration, there is also spiritual dehydration. The Bible uses water to symbolise both the Holy Spirit (Isaiah 55:1; John 7:39) and the word of God (Ephesians 5:26; Titus 2:5). What I am trying to tell you is that spiritual dehydration is even worse than the physical one. The Almighty God wants all His children to be well hydrated so as to be able to function optimally in every facet of their spiritual life.
Therefore, to be well hydrated spiritually, you need to saturate your life with the word of God, Let the word of Holy Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom… (Colossians 3:16) and be filled with the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 5:18). The word of God in your life and the manifest presence of the Holy Spirit in you, just like natural water in the body, will help regulate and maintain your spiritual temperature and functions.
The word of God cleanses the heart, the imagination and the thought pattern of the believer who daily drinks from the Fountain of the Word of life. As you take in this spiritual water every day, your spirit- man is well lubricated to avoid internal pressure and friction which could damage your spiritual life.
- Thank You, Lord, for the redemption of my life, in the name of Jesus.
- Powers assigned to cut me off from the fountain of life, die by fire, in the name of Jesus.
- Arrow of spiritual dryness fired against me, backfire, in the name of Jesus.
- Every witchcraft pot, cooking my glory, scatter by thunder, in the name of Jesus.
- Bewitchment from the marine kingdom assigned to waste my life, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Holy Ghost fire, saturate my life, in the name of Jesus.
- O Lord, turn me to fire, in the name of Jesus.
