Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again … but the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.
John 4:7-14 [ http://iz3.me/UKwP1z3Fe1A1 ]
Scientists in drought-stricken Kenya have discovered enormous underground aquifers with water supplies fed by underground rivers from distant mountains. The largest of these newly found reservoirs is 62 miles long, 41 miles across, and contains 200 billion cubic meters of water — a 900 percent increase over Kenya’s current water preserves.

Jesus promised us living water bubbling up from within those who trust Him. These rivers represent streams of eternal life, everlasting purpose, abundant living, and the waters of the Holy Spirit. In John 7, Jesus said, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water” (verses 37-38).
Thank God for the jubilation of finding massive aquifers beneath the surface of a drought-stricken land. Now thank Him for the joy of having the purposeful, plentiful waters of Jesus beneath the surface of our lives like inexhaustible springs. Our driving purpose in life should be borne along by the currents of those waters. Take time today to make sure you’re drilling down in the right places. Take time to be refreshed.
God is His own motive. His love is not drawn out by our loveableness, but wells up, like an artesian spring, from the depths of His nature.
