The apple klunked me on the head as I was reading Jeremiah 2:13: "My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken me, the spring of living water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water." I realized I was digging my own cisterns instead of following the Holy Spirit; letting Him lead me; letting Him make it happen.
Here's a few tips on how I stopped digging my own cisterns:
1. Daily, I surrender my ideas, projects and dreams before the Lord.
2. Daily, I ask Him to lead me and direct me to what He has for me....not what I want for myself.
3. Daily, I spend time worshipping and reading His Word.
4. I take a sabbath every Sunday. I stop everything and rest my body and my mind.
What about you? Are you digging your wells?
