December 30 Scripture Selection: Zechariah 12-14

Food for Thought: Zech. 13:1; 14:8

The source of the fountain of living waters began in Jerusalem with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and since then has dramatically flowed from there throughout Judea, Samaria, and to the uttermost parts of the world (Acts 1:8). These waters continue to flow toward the east as well as the west and during all seasons. No harsh winter nor the extreme heat of summer, no difficult conditions in the world can detain them, for to do so would mean that Jesus and His Holy Spirit could be stopped, and there is nothing so powerful that could do that. “For the earth will be filled With the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea (Hab. 2:14).”

The living waters that Jesus gives brings life as it removes the affects of sin and uncleanness through the faith in the Word of the vessels that receive them. These potent waters cleanse and heal everyone that steps in their path “by the washing of the water of the Word (Eph. 5:25-27).”

Then, as we take this Gospel to the ends of the earth by the power of the Holy Spirit, these waters overflow, fulfilling the Lord’s Word and His plan for mankind. Jesus promises, “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water (John 7:38),” thus taking the waters ever further. If we have Jesus and His Word, we are a source of the rivers of living water, and we can trust that the water will perform that which the Lord has determined through us. And in so doing, we become active participants of the prophetic Scriptures that speak of the diffusion of the mighty waters of the Lord through all the world. His Word is true, and His waters are mighty.
