They are abundantly satisfied with the fullness of Your house, and You give them drink from the river of your pleasures. (Psalm 36:8 NKJV)
In this verse of Scripture, we believers are depicted as being abundantly satisfied with the ampleness, wealth, and lavishness of God’s house! The image is of an overflowing, endless supply. (See Gen 22:14; Dan 4:2-3; 1 Chr 29:12; Ps 112:2-3; Deu 8:18; Pro 8:21; 13:22)
There are riches in God’s house and vast treasures available to those who abide in His kingdom. We are invited to quench our thirst and alleviate our hunger by the Lord. We are offered supernatural hospitality in God’s house and in God’s kingdom. He is the God of abundance as well as the God of signs, wonders, and miracles. (Exo 15:11; Ps 77:14; Acts 2:22; 43; 4:30; 5:12; 6:8; 14:3; Rom 15:19; Heb 2:4) He offers us abundance spiritually and financially. (Pro 10:22; 13:22; Isa 48:17; Jer 31:14; 2 Cor 9:8)
The phrase, “river of your pleasures,” in the verse at the top of this article alludes to a plenteous supply; copious reserve; or profuse fund of blessings and goodness. Even as God provided abundantly in the Garden of Eden for Adam and Eve, He continues to offer abundance and miracles of supply to His children daily.
Exercise your faith today by familiarizing yourself with the Scriptures so that you may receive what you need from God’s generous and loving heart.
Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him (her) will never thirst.

And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. (Rev 22:1 NKJV – underlining added)
The verses above have one theme in common: A PERPETUAL FOUNTAIN OF LIFE. This fountain of life-giving water flows from within each and every person who has accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Jesus is the Source of eternal life according to Revelation 22:1 for He is the Lamb of God. (John 1:29) Jesus is the source of the fountain of the water of life. (shown above)
Are we rejoicing over this precious gift from God? Are we living with an awareness of what we have been given? Are we joyfully sharing this good news with others? These are key questions to ask ourselves.
Are we allowing those who are thirsty around us to drink from the fountain of eternal life that we carry around within us? Just simply sharing your salvation testimony can have a mighty impact. No one can challenge what you, yourself have experienced, so don’t be intimidated. Just be genuine and honest about what a difference Jesus has made in your life.
The world needs to hear what we have to share with them. Be bold and courageous!
