God’s desire is for us to be submerged in His presence at all times. We live in the Spirit and the Lord brings us deeper and deeper in Him. The river of God is experienced on many different levels and as we go deeper and deeper with Him, we discover more of who He is and more of who we are in Him.
In some areas of our lives, we may be standing ankle deep in the river; in other areas, up to our knees, to our waist, or all the way over our head. Regardless, as we walk with the Lord we can trust He will take us to the depth where He knows we are ready to walk . What truly matters is to know that we are in the river of God and we carry that river everywhere we go. Our life in the Spirit relates not only to the living waters we are flowing in, but to the living waters that are flowing out of us. This abundant life is released to all those with whom we come in contact. Our cup runs over in order to shower others with God’s transforming glory.
In the Lord, we are never stagnant; we are always on the move. The Lord takes us from depth to depth and brings changes to all that pertains to us. When we see the salvation, healing and hope of His presence, we no longer focus on the darkness but rejoice in the light. In the river, we go with peace, joy and righteousness, from glory to glory!
Ezekiel 47:3-4 And when the man went out to the east with the line in his hand, he measured one thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the water came up to my ankles. Again he measured one thousand and brought me through the waters; the water came up to my knees. Again he measured one thousand and brought me through; the water came up to my waist.
