For the LORD your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, flowing out in the valleys and hills. Deuteronomy 8:7 (ESV)
The Hebrew is mayim.
On the second day of creation, God separated and gathered the waters, the mayim.
After breath in our lungs, it is our most desperate physical need.
The plants that feed us need it as well.
When harnessed it can provide power.
We can harness water, but not control it.
One of the sure signs of Jesus’s deity was His ability to command the sea.
We use it daily to clean and care for our bodies.
The laver, filled with water was a prominent feature of the Tabernacle and the Temple.
Ceremonial cleanness was symbolic of moral cleanness.
Water symbolized more than moral cleanness.
The blessing of God.
The invitation is still open.
“Come, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters;” Isaiah 55:1 (ESV)
