There’s A Fountain In You – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional May 9th

(Be Known For Words Of Righteousness And Salvation)

“…The Scriptures declare that rivers of living water shall flow from the inmost being of anyone who believes in me.”

Stan and his little brother, Zack, were riding home after school hours when, all of a sudden, Zack crashed his bike into a tree, rendering it unusable.
“Look at what you’ve done, Zack! You’re just so… urgh!” And Zack angrily went off with some expletives.

His words made Zack cry so much, and Daphne, Stan’s older friend from church, watched the whole incident.

Later that day, she walked over to Stan and calmly instructed him, “Hey Stan, mind the kind of words you use when correcting others; in you is a fountain of living water, and you ought to use words that’ll bless and edify them rather than condemn them.”

The Lord Jesus, in the opening verse of Scripture, said that out of your innermost being would flow gushers of living water. This living water comes out in words to bless your world and is inspired by the Holy Spirit who lives within you. This is so remarkable!

When you read Jeremiah 2:13, it talks about broken cisterns that can’t hold water: “For My people have committed two evils: they have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters, and hewn themselves cisterns—broken cisterns that can hold no water.”

But that’s not you! The Holy Spirit in you is a fountain of living water, pouring forth from you in words of life.

Two things characterise the words we speak: righteousness and salvation. Thus, we speak words of righteousness and words of salvation. Our words lead men into righteousness and salvation.
So, we’re those who turn many to righteousness and bring them into salvation. Hallelujah.

Your words aren’t ordinary. Through your words, righteousness is unveiled, and many are convicted in their hearts for salvation.

The Bible says, “Drip down, heavens, from above, and let the clouds pour down righteousness; let the earth open up and salvation bear fruit, and righteousness sprout with it. I, the Lord, have created it” (Isaiah 45:8 NASB).

Dear Father, from the depth of my heart flow gushers of living water to give life and sustenance to everything in my world and in my environment. My words are impregnated with divine power, producing righteousness and salvation in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
