Now on the final and most important day of the feast,
Jesus stood, and He cried in a loud voice, If any man is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink! He who believes in Me [who cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me] as the Scripture has said, From his innermost being shall flow [continuously] springs and rivers of living water. But He was speaking here of the Spirit, Whom those who believed [trusted, had faith] in Him were afterward to receive…..
John 7:37-39 AMP
When we have the Holy Spirit (Ghost) living in us, we have righteousness, peace and joy living in us. (Rom. 14:17 KJV) Our inner man is like a well of good things. One of those good things is joy. But Satan will try to stop up our well.
Actually stopping up the wells of one’s enemies was a warfare strategy used in olden days, as we see in 2 Kings 3:19: And ye shall smite every fenced city and every choice city, and shall fell every good tree and stop all wells of water and mar every good piece of land with stones.
The stones of worry, self-pity, depression – all of these things – are Satan’s strategy to stop up your well. When your soul is full off these stones, it hinders the flow of God’s Spirit within you. God wants to unstop your well! He desires that the river of life in you flow freely.
Let joy flow! Let peace flow!
In Philippians 4:4 Paul wrote, Rejoice in the Lord always [delight, gladden yourselves in Him]; again I say, Rejoice! In this verse, we are told not once but twice to rejoice.
When the devil launches war against you, retaliate with joy and laughter, with singing and praises to God. The Apostle James wrote: Consider it wholly joyful, my brethren, whenever you are enveloped in or encounter trials of any sort or fall into various temptations (James 1:2 AMP) He goes on to say that the final outcome will be good.
Despite your problems, your trials and temptations, be assured that you will benefit in the end, so look to the end and rejoice now!
Receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit (Ghost) – read Acts 2:38 for a new beginning.
