Is there a well in your life that needs to be unblocked, rediscovered, cleaned out and refreshed?
This was one of the questions our Pastor asked us recently. It was prompted by a testimony of a friend who had re-discovered a well of worship in their life which had been blocked for many years.
We were challenged recently whether there was fresh water in our wells or whether stones and blockages were stopping us giving out fresh water to others. The last thing you want when someone needs you is to throw your bucket down the well and there is nothing to draw on. Our well is dry.
The only true living water comes from Jesus. He is the water that we need to avail ourselves of and give to others. We are a channel of that refreshing and life giving water. If we are not filled and overflowing then we will struggle to give as abundantly as the Lord wants.
Let us not forsake the well of living water. May any blockages be removed by the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
“For My people have committed two evils: They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters, And hewn themselves cisterns—broken cisterns that can hold no water.”
Wellspring means an abundant source and continual supply. A never ending supply. Jesus is the wellspring of life in all its fullness. He is the never ending supply for all our needs. I believe this is something the Lord really wants us to grasp hold of today.
When we do then we will have the confidence to draw on that wellspring not only for ourselves but also to share with others. We have to draw on Jesus- the wellspring of life. If we try and draw from anything else or our own resources then we will not be able to do it. The well will run dry.
Jesus met the Samaritan women at the well and asked her to give him a drink. He then went on to say:
Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”
