Do you limit God to a particular worship style, in a specific building, during one hour, on a certain day of the week, or even a quiet time, a Bible study, or a small group, while you take control of the other 167 hours of the week? If so, you’ve created a spiritual cistern. God said, “My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken me, the spring of living water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water” (Jeremiah 2:13). A spiritual cistern compartmentalizes God.
A cistern was built to catch and store rainwater by covering a basin of stone with plaster. After years of use, the plaster would crack, causing the cistern to leak.
Mankind has been building spiritual cisterns since the first sin, but God desires the Holy Spirit to saturate all of our hearts all 168 hours a week. How would your week change if you reclaimed every moment as a spiritual one, constantly drinking from the flow of Living Water?
