Between Genesis and Revelations, the Bible references water 722 times.
The topics where it’s referenced vary from baptisms to storms and from purification or to quenching thirst.
Rivers. Fountains. Wells. Oceans. Springs. Floods.
When we are going through the storms of life, we know that we can count on our Heavenly Father to say, “Be Still” and it will be still.
“He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.” Mark 4:39
When we are spiritually thirsty, we can drink from the well that is full of life-giving sustenance and never thirst again.
“But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” John 4:14
When we are drowning in the tide that rises over us with despair, distraction, and depression, we can rest in pool of God’s grace and peace.
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.” Isaiah 43:2a
When we feel dirty from our sin, we can pour His waves of forgiveness and mercy over us and be made clean.
“Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.” Hebrews 10:22
