Psalm 46 - God is our refuge and strength very present in distress.
Therefore, we will not be afraid of the changes in the Earth, or in its
shaking the mountains into the heart of the seas; though its waters rage
and foam, its mountains heave with its swelling. Selah. There is a river
whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy tabernacles of the Most
High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be shaken; God will help
her at the break of dawn. The nations rage, the kingdoms shake; He uttered
His voice, the earth melted. Yahoah of Hosts is with us; the God of Jacob
is our security. Selah. Come, behold the works of Yahoah; what desolation
He has made in the earth. He makes wars to cease throughout the earth; He
breaks the bow and snaps the spear; He burns the chariots in the fire. Be
still and know that I am God exalted among the nations, exalted in the
Earth. Yahoah of Hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our security. Selah.

Part 1 ~ The River Whose Streams Make Glad

The rivers of the Holy Spirit that flow through our lives may also be
viewed as the river that ran through the paradise of God in Eden and the
river flowing through the City of God. These are rivers of life and rivers
of joy (Psalm 36:9; John 7:38-39). Wherever these waters of revival flow,
they cause life to spring up through the touch of God's mighty presence
(Ezekiel 47:1:12; Zechariah 14:8; Isaiah 43:20-21, 66:12; Revelation 22:1).

Today, there is a river that flows out of our innermost being. God has made
us His tabernacles because the glory of His presence resides in our lives.
Wherever His presence is felt, His river of life causes that which was
barren and lifeless to spring up with the abundance of His life. His rivers
of life produce joy and purity, and bring forth the same miracles that the
presence of Jesus produced when He ministered to the desolate wilderness of
mankind's life nearly 2000 years ago. The ministry of Jesus lives on today
as the rivers of God flow forth from His tabernacles (John 7:38-39; 1
Corinthians 3:16). The presence of the Lord is to us as broad rivers in a
dry place (Isaiah 33:2, 33:21). We have rivers of life flowing out of us
that make the lame to walk, the blind to see, open prison doors, and set
the captive free!
