Are you in the River?

I'm continuing my reflections of Psalm 46 this evening and meditating on verse 4 which says "There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells." Often times we sing about the Holy Spirit being like a river, as in the song Sprint up o well. It is this river that flows through the life of a believer that fills us with joy and overflows our spirit and onto those around us. Earlier in the Psalm the author was talking about not fearing the calamities and the worries that are around us because God is our refuge and strength. It is because we trust in Christ, because we have our hope and faith in him that we don't need to fear the things of this world. Now that these fears have been given over to Christ we can rest in the sweet river of life that makes glad the city of God. Father I give you all the anxiety today of all the worries and cares of this world, and trust fully and wholly in you so that I can be glad and rejoice in your goodness and grace.

-Amen
