River People

Some Christians are always "in the wilderness."   They sigh deeply and say, "I'm going through another wilderness experience."  The Christian who is not in the river of the Holy Spirit is out of his element.   He's like the proverbial fish out of water. We are not called to be desert dwellers, like the people of Israel were for forty years, even though the Lord had promised them a land of rivers.   Christ has promised believers rivers, not as a rare exception, but as part of their natural environment.  We are not to be bank sitters, admirers of the passing waters, but river people instead. Jump in and God bless you.

[Reinhard Bonnke]

John 7:38 ...  He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

Isaiah 33:21 ... But there the glorious Lord will be unto us a place of broad rivers and streams; wherein shall go no galley with oars, neither shall gallant ship pass thereby.

Isaiah 41:18 ...  I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.

Revelation 22:1 ... And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.❤
