John 7:38 says, "Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them". What exactly does that mean as we are certain water does not visibly gush from our bodies. So, what are the rivers of living water? What does the Bible say it is? And, are "rivers" of living water flowing from us?
One of the most important things I have learned is to let God do the heavy lifting. Too many times we see what's wrong with ourselves and try to fix it through our own strength, but this will never be good enough. Jesus said in John 15:5, "Apart from me you can do nothing" (NIV).
There is a huge difference between personal transformation and just talking and wishing. We can counsel, advise, pray, and encourage someone, but they are the only ones who can discipline their thoughts, take the initiative and chart a new direction.
