Heavy Rain. Holy River.

Journal Reflection of Day 7 (14th February 2017)

For I will pour out water on the thirsty land And streams on the dry ground; I will pour out My Spirit on your offspring And My blessing on your descendants. – Isaiah 44:3

On the final and climactic day of the Feast, Jesus took his stand. He cried out, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Rivers of living water will brim and spill out of the depths of anyone who believes in me this way, just as the Scripture says.” (He said this in regard to the Spirit) – John 7:37-39

Heavy Rain Holy River

Growing up, I spend a lot of time by the Singapore River. I love to watch the rain fall on the surface of the river water. There is a mystical calmness in those magical moments. The sound of heaven touching earth! I love recollecting those memories of strolling by the river with Lilis Toh, fishing and catching crabs with Jeremy Lee or spending time by myself.

There is a another river that is precious to me. The heavenly river of the Holy Spirit that bubbles from my innermost person. This powerful river washes away the toxic and negative emotion building up in me whenever the spirit of offence wants to rear its ugly head.

This powerful river washes away the toxic and negative emotion building up in me.

This River empowers me to move supernaturally. It helps me speak life and love courageously. The source of Singapore River is the rain from heaven. The source of the River in me is from Jesus Christ. “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Rivers of living water will brim and spill out of the depths of anyone who believes in me this way, just as the Scripture says.” says Jesus. Let the Heavy Rain fall and Holy River flow!

What can help us cope with those bitter emotions and negative imaginations?

Who can help you with the spirit of offence?

Hear the voice of the Spirit of Christ,

“If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink.”
