The thought of losing my job, my bank account being drained, losing all my friends, my car, my business; These are all gifts from God that are not promised for tomorrow. Our health can be compromised, a relationship can end and we are left empty. Why? How? They were broken cisterns that could hold no water. Sometimes I believe we can turn our blessings into a curse.
God tells Jeremiah 2:13 ” For my people have committed two evils: they have forsaken me, the fountain of living waters, and hewed out cisterns for themselves, broken cisterns that could hold no water.”
Let us not forget that our main source, the One true well is not our personal belongings or our own achievements but staying near the well which is Jesus Christ. Only Jesus promises to satisfy our thirst. Are we focusing on Him as the priority relationship in our life? Or have we turned to someone or something else for your satisfaction?
