Why is Jesus calling himself the water of life

Jesus refers to himself as the living water due to the fact that he provides us with living water—God's Holy Spirit—that fully satisfies our innermost thirst for our Almighty Father while also moving us to produce good spiritual fruit. This divine life-giving power is far more delightful than any fleshly desire, which will never truly nourish our souls (Galatians 5:13–26).

It is said that one can go for weeks without food but only a few days without water. Our bodies cannot survive for long periods of time without water, As much as our Sprits cannot survive without Jesus.

Water is vital for all living things on Earth, but it also has destructive attributes. Water is frequently used in the Gospel of John to represent purity and cleansing, as well as spiritual desires. John applies water symbolism in the form of signs to reveal Jesus' identity as the Son of God. The conversation between Jesus and the Samaritan women in John 4 and the power of God as he walks on water in John 6 are taken to reveal God's power and presence through the mission and ministry of Jesus Christ, Son of God.

Jesus extends his arms to each of us, offering us the living water of God. However, on our part, this entails a genuine willingness to repent for our sins and a sincere desire to depart from our old ways. We must always be prepared to turn to God, humbly seeking forgiveness and living according to His divine guidance. To summarize, drinking God's living water includes surrendering our hearts to Him.

His living water therefore flows from us in ways that help to glorify His kingdom through our lives, allowing others to see and recognize him.

God reveals in order to redeem

The enemy you know is less persuasive than the enemy you don’t know. In most cases, God displays himself to us in dreams or in visions. So whenever God discloses it to you. He is warning you to take a step and to act upon what he revealed. One thing you should perceive is that your enemy is not your neighbor, sister, colleagues, etc. We only have one enemy, which is the devil. Satan is very manipulative and if you aren’t prayerful enough, you’ll end up falling in to his traps. The day you’ll understand, you’ll avoid despising them.

How do we allow our past to not define us  

Even if you don't have everything together, rest certain that God sees you as his priceless possession. Your past does not define who you are today. In actuality, from a spiritual viewpoint, who you are today is not determined by your past. It might affect your thoughts, but it doesn't make you who you are. God proclaims our true identity: that we are made in His likeness and in His image, reflecting both the male and female facets of God (according to Genesis 1:26-27).

How to depend on Jesus

The things of this world cannot fill the empty space within us; only Christ can complete us. This embodies for us that we need Jesus more than anything else on this planet. God did not put us here to rely on ourselves, but to rely on him for everything. We can't survive without him, which is why the Bible cautions us not to rely on our own understanding, because our understanding can fail us and our hearts can lead us astray. Physically, we may appear to be capable of doing things on our own, but on the inside, we are slowly dying. I don’t know about you, but if you haven't yet accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, it’s not too late. The Bible encourages us in Jeremiah 33:3 that if we call on God, he will answer us and tell us things we don't know. God is waiting for your call today. He is waiting for you to come to him and ask him to show you the way. Here is a short prayer to seek God: Heavenly Father, please forgive me for all of my transgressions against
