“He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being shall flow rivers of living water.’ But this He spoke of the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were to receive; for the Spirit was not yet {given,} because Jesus was not yet glorified.” (John 7:38-39 nasb)
It was the most important day of my life. That moment would set me on a new course for the rest of my days. I walked into a church one person — and walked out as someone completely different. I walked into that building as a man dying of thirst in a lonely desert, but I walked out with a mighty rushing river flowing from the deepest part of my being. In simple terms, that was the day I came to know Jesus as my Lord and Savior.
My heart was filled with joy and peace. It was as though a ton of bricks had been lifted from my shoulders as the peace of God that surpasses all human understanding flooded my soul. In fact, a river truly was flowing from my heart. The Holy Spirit had entered my heart the moment I placed my faith in Christ. Jesus referred to the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit as “rivers of living waters.” That’s one of the biblical names given the Holy Spirit. It describes the mighty work God does when the Holy Spirit comes to dwell within our hearts.
Since that time, I’ve experienced and learned a number of things about these rivers of living waters. First, the rivers dwell in the deepest part of our being. His love, joy, and peace aren’t shallow. They run deep. They’re much more than a good feeling or a temporary moment of pleasure. The Holy Spirit is present — and ready to flow from us in the most difficult situations. In the midst of adversity and pain, He fills us with peace and joy.
Jesus said these rivers will flow from our innermost being. They run deep, but their direction of flow is outward. The indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit is not just to fill our lives with love, peace, and joy, but it’s also to allow God to touch other lives through us. I once met a man in Africa who was dying of cancer. He had only two weeks to live. Yet his heart was overflowing with joy and peace. He had a confidence that was extraordinary. It came from rivers of living waters that were flowing from his life. The rivers flowed even when he stood at the banks of death. They just kept flowing.
You may be saying, “That sounds good, but it’s not the reality of my Christian experience.”
If that’s the case, there can be only one of two reasons. Either you’ve never trusted Christ to come into your heart and save you, or you’ve allowed debris in your heart to hinder the flow. If you’ve never truly trusted Christ to save you, you can call on Him right now, and He will come into your humble, repentant, and trusting heart.
If you’ve already trusted Christ, you need to remove the debris from your heart that keeps these rivers from flowing. It may be an attitude, or it could be words or actions that have hindered the flow of the Holy Spirit in your life. It may be bitterness that’s keeping God’s peace and joy from flowing from your life. Perhaps unconfessed sin is robbing you of God’s deep blessings.
There’s one simple way to get rid of the debris from your soul. Confess that it’s there and turn from it. God will cleanse your heart, and the rivers will flow. Beautiful rivers. Holy rivers. Mighty rivers. Oh, let them flow. Let them flow. Let them flow.

 Revelation : Chapter 22
1)  Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb 2)  down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. 3)  No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. 4)  They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. 5)  There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever. John and the Angel
