Psalm 46:4 (NIV) “There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God ”.

Recently, I watched a nature programme, about how the earth is watered. In the programme, the narrator told the viewer that the best water was to be found at the top of a mountain, then it flowed down and gave life to all that it touched. The best water flowed from above, and its streams spanned out to reach those who were thirsty.
For water to stay fresh, it must have a constant flow from above. But, if water does not have that flow from above, it becomes stale, and nothing will live in it. For example, if I filled my kitchen sink up with water, and then left it there for over a week, the water within it would be lifeless and stale. There has to be an inlet and an outlet, to let the fresh water flow in, through and out, otherwise it would just become stale. God’s flow of living water is full of life, ever flowing, ever making glad the soul.
Consider our text for today in Psalm 46:4 (NIV), “There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God ”.
“Down the mountain the river flows, and it brings refreshing wherever it goes. The river of God is teaming with life, and all who touch it can be revived.” His river can wash over us and make us glad.
Jesus Christ said in John 7:37 to 38 (NIV), “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, asthe Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.” The Bible says in Psalm 23:5 (NIV), “You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows”.
My friend, let us reach out to the Lord for that living water. Let the river whose streams make glad, flow from God above, and wash over my life afresh. Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on me that my cup may over flow, with that never-ending stream from above.
There is a river that flows from God above.
There is a fountain filled with God’s great love.
Come to the waters, there is a vast supply.
There is a river that never shall run dry.
God bless you my friend, Matthew.
