The River of God

“There flows from the throne of God a mighty river, tinctured with all the elements for the sustenance of all the mighty works of His hands. What, of this river, may be seen by the angels of God, id past the comprehension of man.  Man knows naught of the powerful tides flowing out from God to sustain the mighty orbs of heaven. To man no intelligence conveys an idea of the power that controls the myriads of incomprehensibly immense planets which are hung apparently on nothing. What a stream of power must flow continuously to every orb, to say nothing of every possible inhabitant of every orb, is a theme not to be solved by the dwellers of earth, at least not in this life; but to us is but a theme of wonder and an awe forever.

Yet man sees his small share of that mighty stream. Daily do its gracious drops sustain him; daily he basks in the reflection of its crystal tides; daily he carols in unison with its pulsating harmony, and bathes in the sparkling essence of its splendor.  In and through and around man is the river of God ever flowing. On the sinking shores of time man stands and views the ever-flowing stream.” —By W.T. Heald.

"God is the source of life and light and joy tot he universe. Like rays of light from the sun, like streams of water bursting from a living spring, blessings flow from Him to all His creatures. And wherever the life of God is in the hearts of men, it will flow out to others in love and blessing." Mind, Character and Personaltiy, Vol. I, p. 28.

"Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it: thou greatly enrichest it with the river of God, which is full of water: thou preparest them corn, when thou hast so provided for it. Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly: thou settlest the furrows thereof: thou makest it soft with showers: thou blessest the springing thereof.
Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness." Psalms 65:9-11.
