MFM Daily Devotional 21 December 2022 OUTLINE
One thing a believer should always pray and guard against is spiritual dehydration as its consequences are very grave to the entire life of the believer.
Having understood the causes of dehydration, let us now look at its symptoms. Some of the symptoms are: thirst, headache, dry skin, muscle cramps, dry tongue and mouth etc. All these are very serious issues. No wonder Jesus was pleading passionately as reflected in our memory verse for today: “In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink” (John 7:37). The Master knew many would suffer undue hardship and unwarranted oppression as a result of spiritual dehydration.
What are the symptoms of spiritual dehydration? Evil spiritual thirst is the first symptom. This is when a person begins to crave and lust after those things the Lord forbids us from engaging in. Many believers today have evil spiritual thirst for worldliness and sensual pleasure. Check yourself, beloved, whether there is evil thirst in your life.
Spiritual headache is another symptom. Figuratively speaking, headache speaks of trouble and stress of any form. A Christian suffering from dehydration will have a lot of headache to contend with from this world, satan and the old man. He may move from trouble to trouble from time to time. Dry skin spiritually as a symptom of spiritual dehydration talks of fading life. Spiritual dehydration will take the shine off one’s life.
Muscle cramp as a symptom of spiritual dehydration affects mobility. This means that progress and advancement both in the physical and in spiritual things will be hampered. The last symptom is dry tongue and mouth Anyone suffering from dehydration will not be able to function as the Oracle of God. Spiritually, the mouth will be so dry that he won’t be able to praise and worship the Almighty God. He won’t be able to pray and intercede and he won’t be able to evangelize for Christ. Are you suffering from spiritual dehydration? Go to Jesus and let Him give you freely of the fountain of Life.

Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me! In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
