Rhapsody of Realities TeeVo Devotional 29th June – No More Thirsty

(He Has Quenched Your Thirst)

TO THE BIBLE: John 6:55
“For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed.”

There’re those who are always crying to God to “quench their thirst” and fill them afresh. They misunderstand the words of Jesus in John 7:37, where He said, “On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.” This doesn’t mean that when you’re “thirsty” for God that you go to Jesus.

Also, don’t be confused by what the Spirit said through Paul in 1 Corinthians 10:4, saying, “And all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ.” In the Old Testament, they drank water from the rock, and that rock was Christ. Today, you don’t need to “go” to Jesus anymore to get that drink; you’re in Him, and He’s in you! He said, “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water” (John 7:38).

What did He mean by “rivers of living water”? The thirty-ninth verse explains it. It says, “…This He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.” This water is the Holy Spirit. 1 Corinthians 12:13 NIV says, “For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.” In other words, when you received the Holy Spirit, you got the drink of the Spirit. He’s quenched your thirst!

We don’t cry to God to fill us when we think we’re thirsty; we get ourselves filled with the Spirit; and the Word shows us how: “…Be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit. Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs (songs of the spirit; singing in the spirit), singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord” (Ephesians 5:18-19 KJV). This is the way to stay perpetually filled and drenched in the Holy Ghost! It’s by ministering to yourself in the spirit—singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord. Hallelujah!

Dear Father, I thank you for the gift of the precious Holy Spirit in and with whom I’m filled continually. I’m forever refreshed through the Spirit, for out of my belly flow gushers of living water, to give life and sustenance to everything about me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
