Devotions from Baba’s Front Porch: Houseplants

January 11th, 2017

Come, all you who are thirst, come to the waters. Isaiah 55:1

I’ve come to the conclusion we’re like houseplants. If you don’t water your plants regularly, they will die. Houseplants don’t wither without reason. Water is necessary for plant life, and it’s essential for the human body as well. We can only last a short period without water. And, unfortunately, we cannot store it up for a future dry spell.

One of the symptoms of dehydration in my patients, is fatigue. Without water, our body doesn’t have what it needs to function, and people soon become weary and worn-out. Your spirit is much the same. Does life have you exhausted, making you feel tired all the time? It’s possible that you are just plain thirsty. If so, the Lord said, “Come.”

God knew that we would need Him, the Living Water, to survive in this barren land. Without Him pouring into us, we wither away like a neglected houseplant. We begin to shrivel up spiritually. But all we must do to be replenished and refreshed is to come to Him.

God is a fountain, the water constantly flowing over us. Sometimes we think we are good on our own, so we step away. The problem is that the moment we walk away we soon become dehydrated and weary. Don’t wait until you look like that forgotten potted plant in the corner. If you’re feeling weary, worn-out, or tired, go to God. Drink freely and be refreshed.

Remember to drink plenty of water everyday!
