Psalm 46:4 There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.
This passage of Scripture reminds us that divine grace and help flows like a river to the people of God. This river of life is the source of all refreshment, consolation and gladness to believers. The great fear of an Eastern city in time of war was that the water supply should be cut off during a siege. If that water supply were secured, the city could hold out against attacks of the enemy for an indefinite period.
How important and comforting it is for us to know as the people of God who are living in a fallen, sin-torn world, that the Spirit of God, like a river of life, flows continually towards us in these perilous times. No enemy or act of Congress can cut off this stream of living water from the body of Christ.
My dear brothers and sisters, as your new day begins, take these precious moments with The Savior this morning and drink abundantly from the very Fountain of Life Himself, The Lord Jesus Christ. The Psalmist declared that His God had made him glad. (Psalm 92:4) May that be your declaration this morning as you drink from the Fountain of Jesus Christ.
