From The Pastors Desk:
Do You Trust The Word?
There was a man who got lost in the desert. After wandering around for a
long time his throat became very dry, about that time he saw a little
shack in the distance.
He made his way over to the shack and found a water pump with a small
jug of water and a note.
The note read: “pour all the water into the top of the pump to prime it, if
you do this you will get all the water you need”. Now the man had a
choice to make, if he trusted the note and poured the water in and it
worked he would have all the water he needed. If it didn’t work he would
still be thirsty and he might die. Or he could choose to drink the water in
the jug and get immediate satisfaction, but it might not be enough and he
still might die. After thinking about it the man decided to risk it. He
poured the entire jug into the pump and began to work the handle, at first
nothing happened and he got a little scared but he kept going and water
started coming out. So much water came out he drank all he wanted, took
a shower, and filled all the containers he could find. Because he was
willing to give up momentary satisfaction, he got all the water he needed.
Now the note also said: after you have finished, please refill the jug for
the next traveller.” The man refilled the jug and added to the note: “
Please prime the pump, believe me it works”!
We have the same choice to make, do we hold on to what we have
because we don’t believe there are better things in store for us, and settle
for immediate satisfaction? Or do we trust God and give up all that we
have to get what God has promised us? I think the choice is obvious. We
need to pour in all the water, trust God with everything.
Then once we have experienced what God has to offer, the living water,
we need to tell other people,
“Go ahead prime the pump, believe me it works”!
