I read this devotional last night after hearing a message from Steve Berger on courage at Calvary Albuquerque.
Is the river of life flowing in you or has it been reduced to a trickle? What is your fervent desire for your life? For it to flow freely in you or be barely moving? You have a choice. Do you have the strength and courage to make it flow at peak capacity?
Keep the River Flowing from the Joyce Meyer devotional “Promises for Your Everyday Life” in YouVersion
Deep inside each of us, there is a river of life. This river is a wonderful gift given to each of us by God. It flows with good health, a positive outlook on life, and a generous and forgiving attitude.
Many people, however, have allowed their river to become stopped-up. They are always discouraged, and no matter what they do, they can’t seem to snap out of it. Years of neglect have turned a once-power-flowing river into a small stream. Do you know people like this? Does this sound like your life?
Until you’re able to get your river cleared out and unclogged, everything will be difficult, disappointing and unfulfilling. You’ll be unable to taste the water that satisfies like nothing else.
Get in the river by clearing what blocks its flow. Make a choice today to stop spending your life fighting, struggling and trudging through the mud with every step. Ask God to help you clear out the debris. He’ll show you what’s blocking the flow and how to get rid of it. Then, enjoy the satisfying flow of the river of life!
Prayer Starter: God, I want to keep Your river of living water flowing in me. Show me what the debris is that’s blocking the way and then show me how to clear it out.
