This is a podcast episode titled, Imagining God As Your Living Water | Jeremiah 2:11-13. The summary for this episode is: What we are learning to do in this podcast is to live more vertically and not just horizontally. To lift up our eyes throughout our day, in the moments of anxiety, worry, fear, tension, conflict, temptation, unforgiveness. And in the good moments as well because those are perhaps the most dangerous times for our heart and soul. For me, highly imaginative passages in the Bible motivate me in this. Jeremiah 2:11-13 has been one of those passages. It is highly imaginative language. You have to use your imagination to get the full force of what God is trying to say. And when I imagine this passage as God intends, I more fully see the reality of my life and choices the way God sees. Jeremiah 2:11–13 NIV But my people have exchanged their glorious God for worthless idols. Be appalled at this, you heavens, and shudder with great horror,” declares the LORD. “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.” Follow Dave Cover on Twitter https://twitter.com/davecover (@davecover) Follow A Bigger Life on Twitter https://twitter.com/abiggerlifepod (@ABiggerLifePod) This podcast is a ministry of https://www.thecrossingchurch.com/ (The Crossing), a church in Columbia, Missouri, a college town where the flagship campus of the University of Missouri is located.  Like this content?
