Wells of Living Water
I woke up on Saturday, July 14th 2012 hearing this verse :
With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. Isaiah 12:3
JOY is a force that the Lord imparted in our souls that not only gives us strength ( The joy of the Lord is your strength) but a force, a tool, that enables us to draw living, pure water from the wells of salvation!
When we are allowing hopelessness, defeat and deep sorrow to abide in us it will prevent us from encountering joy and without Joy we are looking, searching and knocking on wrong doors! There is nothing like THE ALMIGHTY GOD our source of every and all things that we need for life!
In times of difficulties, dryness, sadness, hopelessness and fear, we start looking for different resources for help, some times people in authority, the world wisdom and it's organization and we forget the Lord! We tend to dig wells for our salvation that won't hold water and for some reason we don't wait on the Lord with perseverance as he wish from us to do.
The Lord said in Jeremiah 2:12-13
<< Jeremiah 2 >>
New International Version 1984
12 Be appalled at this, O heavens,
and shudder with great horror,”
declares the Lord.
13“My people have committed two sins:
They have forsaken me,
the spring of living water,
and have dug their own cisterns,
broken cisterns that cannot hold water.
King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
In the day shalt thou make thy plant to grow, and in the morning shalt thou make thy seed to flourish: but the harvest shall be a heap in the day of grief and of desperate sorrow. Isaiah 17:11
The Lord is able to flow streams of water in the deserts and He is the one who can quench our thirsts! He said in Isaiah 41:18
18 I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.
All of those who believed in the Lord have springs of living water flow in and through them.......We have those springs inside of us and FAITH is the key to activate the flow.
38“He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’” John 7:38
The Samaritan woman, with all of her heartaches, disappointments, multiple, unsuccessful relationships came to the well to quench her thirst where she found the source of Living water, Jesus Christ and all what he can provide! ( For more study read John 4:1-42)
Heard : The Lord is my refuge and salvation, he is the one that comfort me!
The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior;
my God is my rock, in whom I find protection.
He is my shield, the power that saves me,
and my place of safety. ` Psalm 18:2
Food for your spirit
My children, I never told you that life is going to be without troubles and tribulation but I told you that I will never leave or forsake you. In me you have an abundant life and this life in you for I am in you the hope of glory! My Joy is your strength, seek it and it will be given to you.
