One fact that so impresses me about living in Arizona is the fact that there is water, water, everywhere. Because the desert is so dry and hot, just looking at water tends to have a cooling, refreshing impact. Quenching your thirst here is important too…….every restaurant you go to will give you a “to go” cup of whatever you were drinking, if you ask them. That was new to me!
So, who among us will not drink water when we are thirsty? Who among us would refuse a drink from a well after a long and taxing walk in the desert?
WHEN WE THIRST, WE DRINK WATER THAT SATISFIES.
How can we refuse that which refreshes? When Hagar was sent away with her child by Abraham, he gave her bread and a skin filled with water and she wandered in the wilderness of Beersheba.
We all wander and when the stuff of life no longer satisfies and we come to the end of ourselves, as Hagar did over the possible death of her child…….we cry out to GOD in those deserts of life. But…….
GENESIS 21:19 “THEN GOD OPENED HER EYES AND SHE SAW A WELL OF WATER.”
In those deserts, we cry out because the dryness is unbearable, and we weep. Like you, I have been there, on my knees, crying out to GOD as only a mother or father can do. And in my moment, the Spirit spoke, and like Hagar, my eyes were opened to the well.
SPIRITUAL WATER FOR THIRSTY SOULS CAN ONLY COME FROM ONE SOURCE.
Our GOD’S spiritual water is an abundant endless supply…….do you know? And because the well is right there within reach, we must open our eyes to see it.
Let us……..look for the well.
As we look, let us draw near and draw close to our abundant GOD, the only ONE who can supply all our needs eternally and presently in our life.
Like Hagar our eyes must open to see. Our eyes must be truly set upon the truth to find the well! Are you currently seeking truth? Being a truth seeker will help you find the well. And your thirst will be abundantly quenched.
Think about this, JESUS is waiting at the well for you! Can you see HIM there? HE came to us by blood and water, to save, to rescue, to forgive, to love and to give us the refreshment we need for our souls!
HE waits by the well, open your eyes and see and be refreshed daily from the only source of pure living water. GOD’S ample well is HIS WORD! Let your thirst be satisfied by HIS well of water only to be found with heart and mind.
See HIS well……..HE patiently waits for you!
ISAIAH 12:3 “WITH JOY YOU WILL DRAW WATER FROM THE WELLS OF SALVATION.”
