The Upper Room Daily Devotional For Today 5 September 2022The Power of Water By Susan G. Walters (Kentucky, USA)

TOPIC: The Power of Water

Susan G. Walters (Kentucky, USA)

TODAY’S READING

John 4:1-15

KEY VERSE: Jesus said, “Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” – John 7:38 (NIV)

MESSAGE

On a recent trip with friends to a nearby lake, I visited a beautiful waterfall. I was able to hear it even before I could see the falling water plunging into the lake below. We anchored our boat and began to swim toward the waterfall.

The force of the water, the sound, and the coolness didn’t scare me. I swam with confidence to the waterfall, letting the water hit me on the head, neck, and shoulders. My friends were smiling, and we stayed near the waterfall for quite some time, allowing the cool water to refresh us in the heat of the day.

That majestic waterfall reminded me of God’s love, power, and constant presence. Jesus offers us Living Water. He quenches our thirst and fills us with his love until it overflows from us to others. This water satisfies like no other and fills the soul.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

What evidence of God’s love and power do I see in my life?

TODAY’S PRAYER

Heavenly Father, we want to be filled with your living water so that we may be refreshed and share your love with others. We pray as Jesus taught us, “Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen” (Matt. 6:9-13, KJV).
PRAYER FOCUS

Gratitude for God’s gift of nature
