“If a sudden jar can cause me to speak an impatient, unloving word, Then I know nothing of Calvary love. For a cup brimful of sweet water cannot spill even one drop of bitter water, however suddenly jolted” (Amy Carmichael). It is funny how our mouths can one moment speak praises to God and the next moment speak curses. How quickly our spirit changes. Because “Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of”(Luke 9:55). Jesus wants to give us His spirit of living water. It is a sweet water that never runs dry. It is a constant flowing well of water so we will never thirst again. But first He must empty us of our bitter water and full us with His eternal sweet water. He wants us to be controlled by the sweet Holy Spirit and create in us the sweetness of a true Christ-like spirit.
Thought for Today: Lord, control our tongues, out thoughts, our hearts. Fill us with your sweet eternal wells of living water.
