Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it: thou greatly enrichest it with the river of God, which is full of water (Ps. 65:9 KJV)
The scriptures extensively use the symbol of water to describe spiritual truth to us. What is water? If you understand natural thirst, then it will be easy to understand the spiritual truth it communicates to us. Thirst is a strong desire for water because of a dire need in the body. The key words are desire and need. We have needs; some are of the body, others of the soul and still others are of the spirit.
Water, as used figuratively in the scriptures, is that which meets the needs of the human life. Think about the way water meets the needs of a thirsty man. There are natural means of meeting some of the needs of humanity. For example, we have a natural means of meeting some of the needs of the body. However, God has a heavenly supply to meet every need of the human life, body, soul, and spirit. That divine supply is what God calls “water.”
A river is merely an abundance of flowing water. Think about that! Imagine living in a place where your needs are not only met, but there is an inexhaustible supply that keeps pouring in again and again! That is the river of God! It is the River from heaven that meets all the needs of the human life. It meets those needs through different streams or rivers. Peace, for example, is one of the rivers that flow from the River( Isa. 48:18). There are also rivers of power, joy, and righteousness.
The River of God is full of water. God has you covered. Drink and be refreshed!
What is the difference between the River ( Ps. 65:9) and rivers (John 7:37)?
Declare that “the Lord is supplying all my needs by the river of God which is full of water!”
APPLY THE WORD
There is an abundance of joy, peace, righteousness, healing, power, wisdom, prosperity, etc. for you. Learn to drink of that river. Heaven has sent an abundance of supplies to you. Drink of the river! I encourage to take a moment to listen carefully to this teaching on “The River of God” on Deshen.tv if you have not yet done so.
Thank the Father for the blessing of the River from above!
