Drink of Eternal Life

“He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season and its leaf does not wither; and in whatever he does, he prospers.”
—Psalm 1:3

What happens when we make the Lord first in our lives, when we make seeking His truth and His presence our number one objective? The psalmist says we prosper and experience success. Yeshua said, “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you” (Matt. 6:33).

I’m not talking about material success necessarily. I’m talking about God’s Spirit of everlasting life living in us and through us. The psalmist says when we strive to put God first, when there’s a big yes in our hearts unto Jesus and we yearn to do what’s right (even though sometimes we fall), Yeshua will forgive us and renew us. And we will continually bear fruit in every season of our lives. We’ll be changed from glory to glory, grace to grace, and strength to strength. Even though our outer man may be decaying as we age, our inner man will be renewed day by day. We’ll keep getting younger and younger in the spirit. Our lives will have an effervescent youthfulness to them even when we’re old. Why? Because we’re drinking of eternal life.

So let me ask you a question today. What source are you drinking from? Are you drinking from the world? Are you drinking from negativity, ungodly relationships, cynicism, sarcasm, bitterness, and accusation? Are you filling yourself with Hollywood entertainment and secular music? Or are you drinking from the wellspring of God’s Word, Spirit, and the fellowship of believers in His Son? The choice is before us. The Lord says, “I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live” (Deut. 30:19).

Beloved, we can’t have it both ways. I challenge us today to discipline ourselves and choose life so we can live abundantly in Yeshua.

Father God, help me to drink from the well of Your Spirit. Try my heart and make it known to me when I am drinking from wells that lead to death. More than anything I want You to have Your way in my life. I want to be renewed day by day as I yield my will to You and honor You with my life.
