Eze 47:5 Again he measured a thousand, and it was a river that I could not pass through, for the water had risen. It was deep enough to swim in, a river that could not be passed through.
Once someone gave me a picture of an otter with wet fur sitting in a boat on the surface of a river. The otter was laying back with a smug look on its face. However the otter could never get around in a boat as efficiently as being in the water he was designed to navigate.
I realised then how easy it is to adopt non-Holy Spirit methods, and to think we are being successful! But we were never made for the man-made approach to the River of God! We were made to get immersed, to swim, to go with His flow. May we today jump ship in every area where we are not, or no longer, River-based! May we dive deep in the currents of the Father’s love, and allow the River of Holy Spirit to take us where He wants to go – ever deepening.
