THE SCENT OF WATER
Job 14-7-9: For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease. Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the stock thereof die in the ground; Yet through the scent of water it will bud, and bring forth boughs like a plant.
A tree that is wax old or dead is lacking what it need to continue to live because the purpose of GOD for it is for it to flourish and multiply. A man may lack strength, love, peace, joy, money, placement, help, might be under the bondage of sin, sickness or diseases or ancestral disease or family stigma (shame due to a lack or disease).Such person is that tree that is cut down. However, there is still hope for such person.
For example: Abraham was called out of a family or generation of idolatry and now he has become the source of joy to the whole earth.
- You may have some personal pains that you may not be able to share, there is still hope.
- You may have so many weaknesses, there is still hope for strength.
- You may have financial crises or need, there is still hope.
- You may not know how or not be able to memorise or quote scriptures now, there is still hope.
- You may need strength (now, to carry on, continue, or complete), there is still hope.
- You may be over due for marriage, there is still hope.
- You may need healing, there is still hope. E.g the woman with the issue of blood. Mark 5:25-34.
I have not seen where man carry buckets of water to wet a tree that has already waxed old and whose stock is already dead in the ground. No man will be able to pour the amount of water that a tree in that state will need to spring forth again or to bud again and bring forth boughs like a plant. Because the root of the tree that absorbs the water into the tree is deep down in the earth. And there will be need for a large amount of water that can sink through the earth and get to the depth where the root of the tree can absorb the water. It is only Rain water especially a heavy down pour that can do that. And the Rain water is from above.
However, in the case of Man or Ministry etc it is not a physical water that man needs but a Spiritual water , which also come from above . GOD is the giver of the spiritual rain or water and HE is from above. John 3:27 says;”A man can receive nothing except it be given from above”. So, the Spiritual water is given from above. For example;
- When Sarah was to conceive Isaac, she received strength from GOD which is from above.
- For the woman of the issue of blood to be healed, virtue flow to her from JESUS. And JESUS HIMSELF is from above. So, JESUS could heal the woman because HE is from above.
For a Tree to receive the scent of water ,it’s root has to remain in the ground. If you uproot a tree even if the tree is fully healthy, and deep it in big water the tree will die. The root of a tree have to remain in the ground for it to receive the scent of water. Although, rain has its season of falling. But as long as the tree remain in the ground (whenever the rain fall), it will receive the water.
Therefore, you have to remain in the ground as the above to have access to the water. The ground may represent the place where GOD put you, the Presence of GOD, instructions from GOD, counsels from GOD, maintaining the relationship that GOD put you, GOD may instruct you to serve (somebody), you may need to pay a particular price, you may have to stay close to an Anointing (for your yoke to be broken or for you to receive your healing or breakthrough), where you have to be , what you have to do or the step you have to take for you to connect the (Spiritual) water, is the ground in which the root of the tree have to remain.
For example, the woman with the issue of the blood has to do all she can to be or get close to JESUS before she could touch the helm of HIS garment (which is the step that she need to take) and connect the virtue for her healing.
In every going through, there is need for water (Spiritual). Even, whether it is financial going through. Deuteronomy 8:18 says; “But thou shall remember the LORD thy GOD: for it is he that giveth thee power [which is the spiritual water] to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
There is need to long for the water. Mark 5:27-29 says; “When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched His garment. For she said, if I may touched His clothes, I shall be whole. And she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague. The woman with the issue of blood longed for her healing [the water] and believe before she took the step to touch the helm of the garment [of JESUS] and received the healing [through faith]. She long for it, she was desperate for it [vs 27], she believed [faith] [vs 28], and she received the healing [vs 29].
Even in Luke 6:19 says; “And the whole multitude sought to touch HIM: for there went virtue out of HIM, and healed them all. They longed for it and took a step of faith and they all got their healing. So, long for, believe, take a step of faith [this is part of remaining in the ground (tree) where the rain can meet you], and GOD will rain the spiritual water on you [Grace, Anointing and or Power that you need for the situation or situations you find yourself or what you are going through].
Therefore, cry (Pray or ask) to GOD for the scent of water and do all that is required for you to connect the scent of water.

You can touch GOD through;
