Oceans are made up of water. Oceans never run dry, but are continually filled from many sources.
Believers have the water of the Spirit in them. The bible signifies the Spirit many times with water. Jesus said:
“’He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will overflow rivers of living water.’
But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.” John 7:38-39
As the ocean continues to be a source of water for both plants and animals, it shows its importance. Believers also have this important role of blessing the world through the living water that flows from within. The Spirit is in us, and we have to bless the thirsty, that they may drink and be filled. “For if anyone drinks of this water, he shall never thirst again”, said Jesus.
The life of God should continually flow in and through us. We are a source of life, and as many who hear the message of the gospel from our lips, they have drunk and are filled.
Spiritual Thought About Oceans

When you think about the most powerful forces of nature, water is sure to come to mind. We need water to survive, and yet an excess of it can be deadly and overwhelming. If you’ve ever looked out across the ocean, you know just how enormous and awe-inspiring it is. One particularly strong wave and you could easily be swept away.
But as powerful as the ocean may seem, our God is even greater. The Bible is full of imagery relating to water. Psalm 89:9 says, “You rule the raging of the sea; when its waves rise, you still them.” Psalm 93:4 says, “Mightier than the thunders of many waters, mightier than the waves of the sea, the Lord on high is mighty!” Looking ahead to the New Testament, we see the stories of Jesus walking on water and, on another occasion, calming a raging storm with His voice.
There is a common theme in all of these passages: God is stronger than any force of nature. He has authority over the wind, the waves, and everything on earth; indeed, He is the one who created all these things. In Isaiah 43:2, God comforted the Hebrew people with these words: “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you…” What a vivid picture of God’s mighty protection. When we seek refuge in Him, there is nothing on this earth – not even the ocean – that could ever overtake us.
