ISAIAH 12: 1—6
1In that day you will say: “I will praise you, O LORD. Although you were angry with me, your anger has turned away and you have comforted me. 2Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The LORD, the LORD, is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation.” 3With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. 4In that day you will say: “Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted. 5Sing to the LORD, for he has done glorious things; let this be known to all the world. 6Shout aloud and sing for joy, people of Zion, for great is the Holy One of Israel among you.”
When we are thirsty, it’s easy for us to take care of our thirst at most a glass cup or two will do at that moment. But there is a limitation as to the quantity, it can get exhausted at any point in time as compared to well as a source that takes care of your thirst
Today, there is a thirst that you and I should have and the Holy Spirit will reveal to us how Jesus will quench that thirst and make us to be fully satisfied.
The Lord gives us the water of life without cost. To this salvation the Lord invites us with His invitation. In Revelation we are told, “The Spirit and the bride say, ’Come!’ And let him who hears say, ’Come!’ Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life”(REVELATION 22:17).
It is good as you and I have come this morning once again at the Lord’s invitation that we might partake of the free gift of the water of life.
When our soul is dry it will be refreshed with God’s living water. Isaiah made us to understand that there is a Joy that comes with the water of which is Jesus, his presence in your life commands continual refreshness (revival/restoration) 3With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.. David said there are eternal pleasures in his presence. Psalms:16:11: Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
As these are true and confirmed by these great men of God, then your thirst should tends towards the water of life – Jesus, his presence should mean much to you and you should always be thirst to be there.
Reflection of our Thirst for the water of Life – when we are thirsty of this water of life, it will motivate certain actions out of us and these are:
1. Backward Never Action – we will refuse to go back to dryness, our former life before meeting Christ was a dry life. We will refuse to think about the former things as we have tasted to satisfaction the goodness that is in Jesus. Psalms:34:8: O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. Isa:43:18: Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.
2. Trusting to Follow Action – there is a blessing attached to trusting Jesus, because of his goodness, you develop a higher trust for him to the extent that you will always want to follow him. David said he was glad to go when he was called to the house, There is a an abundant satisfaction to be derived Psalms:122:1: I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD.Psalms:34:8: O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
3. Proclaiming the goodness of God Action – The zeal to make known every good works of God, you will be much more interested in evangelism, going out to fulfill the commission, telling the world about Jesus 4In that day you will say: “Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted.
Brethren these are the actions we demonstrate when we are truly thirsty for water of life, when we are truly born-again, and convinced in our spirit, then these actions should be seen in our daily life.
HOW DO WE DRAW THE WATER OUT?
How do we draw this living water out and give it to other people? The water must be drawn out at the “Mouth” of the well. The only way to get the water out is to open our “Mouth”
-Prov 10:11 The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life:…
-Prov 18:4 The words of a man’s mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook.
-Eph 4:29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
When Jesus met the woman at the well in Samaria, He drew out living water from within Himself through the words He spoke and in the words He spoke she found eternal life
-Rom 10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And who shall they hear without a preacher?
You as a believer Open your mouth and draw out the life giving water of salvation and give to them that are thirsty. Talk to someone about Jesus and see how he blesses you with abundance of satisfaction
