A dam collects water to retain; while a river collects water to release.
A river that stops receiving will equally dry up - every river must keep receiving to keep releasing. For no man can give out what he does not have; to give enough, you must receive enough.
A dam collects from many streams, but refuses to release; hence, it stinks and it stagnates.
We must be hooked to the Source, for a steady release of substance to others.
What you sow you will reap, if you want money, give it; if you want to reap shoes, sow it. And the reality is, reaping is usually in a multiplication of the seed planted.
For you to have mercy, you must show mercy. Whatever, you desire in larger quantities, you must give up what you have. If you want prayer, you must pray for others. If you want knowledge, you must be eager to share whatever you know.
What you lack is what you have refused to share.
Prayers are like water, that only produces result when certain seeds have been sown. When we sow, and we pray, we get results. Whatever you want increase on, give it over!
Every seed must come first from your heart; whatever cannot leave your heart cannot leave your hand. Every giving of the hand, that does not originates from your heart, will not become an increase to you, but a reduction of what you have.
Even Jesus did not die on the cross, He did on the mount of Gethsemane. The kind of flow (sacrifice) that comes from our river cannot be half-hearted, but from a true heart. Reward (increase) only comes from a willing heart. Flow out sincerely and you will be guaranteed of steady supply into us.
When you counsel wholeheartedly, you will receive wholesome counsel. When you help people genuinely without strings attached, you will receive genuine help everywhere you go.
Therefore, we must choose to be a river that flows.
A river is a carrier, a river is a distributor; river collects for the sake of others; rivers are selfless and others-focused. Being a river of living water means that wherever the river flows to, life comes to the place. People trusts rivers for a steady supply of water, which ensures life distribution across locations.
Rivers do not doubt their capacity to share life everywhere they go to. We must carry same mentality as we go places that whoever encounters us, encounters what we carry.
Multidimensional impacts from the flow of life from our lives as we keep in touch to the source of life and keep sowing in the lives of others around us.
There will be visible results to show! We will continue to produce visible results as long as we continue to source our lives in God.
