2) Reasons to Praise God: Water (Genesis 1)


Long after the Spirit of God moved upon the waters, our feathered friend here attests that H20 is no ordinary molecular combo.

And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. (Genesis 1:2b)

A fire in the building next door woke us out of bed last night. Our abode stayed safe from the blaze, although flames licked the vinyl siding on our building, melting it in several places. Others lost their apartments, their furniture, their gadgets, their toys. Fortunately, no one lost their lives. Everybody got evacuated safely.

End result: The fire would have spread to our building. The wind was blowing it there. The firemen came and bravely fought off the beast with water. H20. The life-saving, life-giving element, life-refreshing element. We can praise God for water, physical and spiritual.

Jesus said, “…Whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.”  (John 4:14)

This is the better kind of water. One kind of water will quench your thirst for a while, but this kind of water will revive you for eternity and make your time spent on earth most refreshing. Many people reject this kind, saying, “I do not need this Jesus water. Sounds too far-fetched. Insensible. I’ll go with the Evian.”

That kind of water, however, ends up in toilets, usually.

But sip the effervescent, life-giving sort, and ye shall have more than just a soothed tongue. Ye shall have a soothed soul.

Turn you at my reproof: Behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make know my words unto you. (Proverbs 1:23). Note that “pour out” here is a transliteration of the Hebrew word “naba,” which means bubbling forth. So, God’s living water, like His eternal wisdom in Christ, bubbles forth out of the ground, like a well-found spring: Sweet, refreshing, perfect water. He will reveal his actual thoughts to us by having this draught. He will give us so much more than we could have ever wished. To open the bottle, click here.
