    Verse 17 is an open invitation to all the poor and the needy who seek water, who are thirsty, maybe thirsty for natural water, the Lord says "I the LORD will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them" This verse gives me life it restores my soul each time I read it. It truly sanctifies me. Thank you Jesus for your faithfulness. Your Word makes me whole, Father and I bless your name!
