Ever experienced a flood of water and no matter the fight you put up, unable to stop the flow? Most of us have seen pictures and TV news reports on the recent N’Easter’s staggering damage, particularly flood damage that saw beach-side loss of property and even the beaches themselves. The power of water is staggering. As you read this, water from our basement is being pumped into the street, now about four weeks straight.
Isaiah 44:3 says, "For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour my Spirit upon your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants”. The imagery is clear for a Middle Eastern mindset familiar with arid conditions. Think about the floods you've seen recently and imagine with me for a moment that it represents God’s Spirit.
Now answer this question: Would you consider ‘our land’ to be a dry and thirsty land, spiritually speaking? The point being there is a whole lot of water needed to be poured out by Holy Spirit. Fortunately, there is no limit to His supply.
As we watch the floods eventually subside, let's increase our openness to Holy Spirit’s outpouring for our area, our neighborhoods, and ourselves. Be filled and continue to be filled to overflowing for the thirsty around you.
