FOUNTAIN OF LIVING WATER

Date: April 25

Category: Divine Healing

Jeremiah 17:13-14
"O Lord, the Hope of Israel, all who forsake You shall be put to shame. They who depart from You and me [Your prophet] shall [disappear like] writing upon the ground, because they have forsaken the Lord, the Fountain of living waters. Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved; for You are my praise."

Slobodan & Ljiljana KrstevskiThese verses are about the Fountain of living waters. It says here that the Lord is the Hope of Israel. So you should always put your hope in Him. But it also says here that if you forsake God, you will be put to shame. Verse 13 says, "They who depart from You and me [Your prophet] shall [disappear like] writing upon the ground." Let's say, for example, you write something in the sand. When the wind blows, your writing will disappear from the sand. That's what will happen to you if you forsake the Lord. It won't take long before you will disappear as well.

Then it says in verse 14, "Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved; for You are my praise." God is the One who heals us. He is the One who saves us. He is our Fountain of life, our Fountain of living waters. That's why we need to put our hope in Him. When God heals, you will be healed indeed. When God saves, you will be saved indeed. Then it says in verse 14b, "…for You are my praise." All of these things will happen in your life when you praise Him. You will be healed and saved when you open your mouth and praise Him. If God is your hope, then your heart will praise Him.

God saving you could mean salvation; it could mean forgiveness of sins. God will forgive you of your sins but you've got to praise Him. God saving you could mean protection from danger, but you've got to praise Him. God's healing can be both physical healing and emotional healing, but you've got to open your mouth and praise Him. Praising God precedes any healing or salvation. You and I were created to praise our God, who is our Hope and our Fountain of living waters. When you do that, then you're not going to disappear. When you do that, then salvation and healing comes. When you read about the people in the Bible who have lived godly before the Lord, you can see that they have lived long lives. They were satisfied with all good things. They had peace, prosperity, joy, and love. If you want to have those things in your life, then you need to follow what this Scripture teaches. Don't forsake the Lord; don't abandon Him. Instead, follow His Word; seek Him and obey His instruction. Not only that, but also praise Him; give Him glory. By giving Him praise, He will heal you and save you. By following His ways, He will be your Fountain of living waters.
