SCRIPTURE: “For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring:” – Isaiah 44:3.
Dehydration is insufficient water in the body which could be mild or very serious, depending on the level of water one has in his or her body. In the same vein, spiritual dehydration is the insufficiency of the word of God and of the presence of the Holy Spirit in a believer’s life. This is the point I have been trying to bring to your understanding. You need to know that spiritual dehydration is not something you handle non-challantly. It is a critical condition that needs concerted attention.
Some of the causes of physical dehydration are fever, diarrhoea, vomiting, etc. Now bringing these symptoms into spiritual templates, they become spiritual fever, spiritual diarrhoea and spiritual vomiting.
Are you suffering from spiritual fever? Have you allowed the mosquitoes of sin and evil habits to bite you? Many Christians are suffering from this malady today because of their constant fever has killed and is still killing several people.
Spiritual diarrhoea, especially the one connected to verbal indiscipline, is a major problem. Alot of people have brought different kinds of problems upon themselves because of the wrong use of their tongues. Diarrhoea in the physical makes one lose fluid. Spiritual diarrhoea also causes dehydration because many are given to too much talking which drains them of grace and unction of the Holy Spirit.
Another cause of spiritual dehydration is spiritual vomiting. This happens when you have fed yourself with the wrong spiritual diet through watching of obscene movies, listening to polluted music or feasting on social media garbage. When you engage in any of these you throw up spiritually and get sapped. Are you dehydrated spiritually? It is a dangerous spiritual state. That is why God said: for I will pour water upon him that is thirsty… (Isaiah 44:3).
