Job 29:19-20 – My roots will reach to the water, and the dew will lie all night on my branches. My glory will remain fresh in me, the bow ever new in my hand. (NIV)
Once the kettle has come to a full boil and we take it away from the heat, the steam ceases to come from the kettle. But if we leave the kettle to boil, the water inside will eventually boil dry. We need to add more water.
We might compare this to things in our lives. How many times do we become engrossed in things that we really get fired up about? It could be something to do with our workplace, or an event in our Christian lives that keeps "the kettle at a full boil." We need to add more "water".
When we are on fire for God, we need to be sure we keep on replenishing our spiritual supplies through activities like Bible studies, prayer, and fellowship with one another. We need to call upon God through the Holy Spirit to refresh us with His strength, in order to keep an even flow of productivity coming out through our lives in Him, never boiling dry.
Galatians 6:9 – So don't get tired of doing what is good. Don't get discouraged and give up, for we will reap a harvest of blessing at the appropriate time. (NLT)
Prayer: Dear Lord, help us to keep on working for You. Never let us boil dry. We pray that You will supply the inner resources we need, through the power of the Holy Spirit, to keep a fresh and steady zeal in our movement to produce for You. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
