Psalm 55:22
‘Give your burdens to the LORD, and He will take care of you.’

There are two things that we must do.

John 7:37 ‘If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink.’

The first, as mentioned above, is to respond to the invitation and come to Him. The second is that we need to engage and drink. When we are physically thirsty and we drink natural water, we take it into our bodies. Our thirst is not quenched until we actually receive into our bodies as we drink it. There is a receiving that needs to take place. Once we have done this, the miracle happens and this living water can begin to flow from within us like a spring or a perpetual fountain.

John 7:37-38 Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.'”

It starts with drinking and ends up as a flowing river of living water within us.

The promise is that He will give us the water we are looking and longing for. If it is forgiveness you need, He will forgive. If it is grace you need, He will give His grace. If it is mercy you need, He will give you His mercy. He will not withhold the water to satisfy your thirst. He wants to give you an abundant supply. He also wants to give you an abiding supply, not a flash flood and then nothing, but a perpetual flowing supply.

John 4:14 ‘But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.’ (NLB)

John 4:14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

God wants this water He gives to be ‘IN US’ not on us. It is something that we must make our own. It is something that we should embrace and allow it to come and transform our lives in every way. It is something that should be alive and not stagnant. The Bible speaks of water springing up. It speaks of a fresh bubbling spring. It speaks of a river and a flow that should take place. I believe that this life-giving flow should flow out of us and be a blessing to others. We can’t just store up the flow, but we must share it, give it and let it be a blessing around us.
