1. A refreshing river - "makes Glad"

2. A reviving river (Ezek. 47:9, John 7:37-39)

A. Reflect on what this means

2. God is resident, therefore...city is immovable v.5

3. God has a river, therefore...Christianity is invincible v.5b

B. Review what God has done (vs. 8-9)

C. Rejoice in what is promises (v.10b)

III. You must relax - "be still" is literally "relax"
