Singers and dancers alike say, “All my springs are in you.”
David sang: “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge” (Ps. 19:1-2). Paul wrote the same: “For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made” (Rom. 1:20).
Creation exists to declare and glorify God. That includes natural springs. Wikipedia states: “A spring is any natural situation where water flows from an aquifer to the Earth’s surface.” Springs continuously supply water. Thus, it’s not hard to see the incredible meaning of today’s verse.
All our goodness and righteousness that flows to others is wholly grounded in God. Jesus expressed that with these words: “But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God” (John 3:21).
The New Testament equivalent of today’s verse is also found in John: “I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing” (John 15:5). Isn’t that a perfect rendering of, “All my springs are in you”?
Paul wrote: “Christ is all, and in all” (Col. 3:11). No matter who you are in God’s Kingdom, whether a singer, dancer, or anyone else, Jesus is the sole fountain of everything that’s pleasing to the Father.
