Cistern Repairs

When I searched for more information on Jeremiah 2:13, the sidebars came up with offers to repair my leaky cistern with a drop-in liner, a replacement tank or a new type of water cistern that would end all my poverty.

None of those cisterns can fix spiritual dryness.

God tells us that spiritual dryness comes from two things.

  1. We have abandoned God.
  2. We don’t turn back to God, even though he offers us living water. Instead we build our own.

For My people have committed two evils: they have forsaken Me, the Fountain of living waters, and they have hewn for themselves cisterns, broken cisterns which cannot hold water. (Jeremiah 2:13, AMP)

What does your hand made cistern look like? Binging on food, drubs, alcohol? Is it another cigarette or hours of mind numbing pornography on the net?

Is Israel a servant? Is he a home born slave? Why has he become a captive and a prey? (Jeremiah 2:14, AMP)

Read this with your name in it. Is ___________a servant? Is _______________ a home born slave? Why has ________________become a captive and a prey?

Why indeed, when God offers us living water when we turn to him instead.

Prayer – Lord, help us to make the right decision, toward you! In Christ. Amen
