    That’s why Jesus came to do something deeper than BROOKS…. Elijah needed to travel to get a brook, but there’s something on my inside DEEPER than *BROOKS,* I don’t need to travel for it because I have it on my inside, what I just need is it *ACTIVATION,* it’s called RIVERS 💥 🔥

    If a *BROOK* could sustain Elijah for period of time, how much more RIVER 💥 🔥 💥

    Brooks don’t Flow, so Elijah only had opportunity to drink for himself, but if only you can carry something deeper than *BROOKS,* your Generation will drink & drink until there’s no CAPACITY to drink again 🔥 💥 🔥

    *BROOK* is bigger, but it can’t last you longer than your existence on earth, if only you can drink for something *DEEPER* that can Flow from a GENERATION to a GENERATION, you will be relevant for life 💥

    There were many men in the days of our fathers that shook the world, but we only hear about few of them, why? They drank something others didn’t drink 💥 🔥 💥
