Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 24th September

The Life-Giving Stream

And it shall come to pass, that every thing that lives, which moves, wherever the rivers shall go, shall live. (Ezekiel 47:9)

The living waters, in the prophet’s vision, flowed into the Dead Sea and carried life with them, even into that stagnant lake. Where grace goes, spiritual life is the immediate and the everlasting consequence. Grace proceeds sovereignly according to the will of God, even as a river in all its windings follows its own sweet will; and wherever it comes it does not wait for life to come to it, but it creates life by its own quickening flow.

Lord, let the living water flow to my family and my friends, and let it not pass me by. I desire to bathe in it, to swim in it. O my Savior, I need life more abundantly. Come to me, till every part of my nature is vividly energetic and intensely active. Living God, I pray Thee, fill me with Thine own life, that, like Aaron’s rod, I may bud and blossom and bring forth fruit unto Thy glory.
