He who waters himself waters Others
Watering from the well of God's Word for His word is spirit and life. Watering from the wellsprings of the Holy Spirit for without the Spirit, there is no life. Besides daily quite time, church services are ways in which God waters our souls. Yesterday during the first service, I saw a vision of God's sanctuary. I saw how unworthy I was, clothed with filthy rags but yet when God dresses his children He gives them the best robe, coloured robe like what Jacob gave to Joseph; like what the Father gave to his prodigal son. I saw the eternal beauty of God's sanctuary though our earthly sanctuary is a little shop lot in the midst of nowhere. But the most High God is present in all his majesty reigning on high, reigning in hearts on fire for him. He leads his people beside still waters, he restores our souls even as we meditate on His law day and night we shall be a tree planted by the riverside, drawing water from the rivers of God, the mighty streams of His Spirit flowing through the Temple of God, the temple of our hearts, making us alive and in and through us, water others and quicken them to live before God and Christ.
