Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for Jehovah, even Jehovah, is my strength and song; and he is become my salvation. 3Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation. Isaiah 12:2-3
We are ALL drinking from something...what am I drinking from? Am I drinking from the well of salvation? The clean and pure water that Jesus spoke of in John 4:14 "...but whosoever
drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water
that I shall give him shall become in him a well of water springing up unto
eternal life." Am I drinking from His Word, of the promises and truth that are all throughout, finding strength for each day and hope for tomorrow? Am I reading and finding the knowledge of how He wants me to live?
Or, am I drinking from the shallow wells of this world, the wells of worldly entertainment? The Hollywood ideas of love and fulfillment? Am I drinking of the wells of this world's empty pleasure? Is the emptiness inside drawing me to seek temporal, earthly thrills? And, when I have drank from those shallow, empty wells, do I go back for more? Or, do I run back to Jesus where the life giving water flows, freely, to satisfy my every longing, no matter how deep? Do I come back with brokenness and repentance? I was not made for the shallow, temporal wells of this world. I was made to draw deeply from the wells of salvation.
Lord Jesus, give me a thirst and a longing for You that will drive me onward to You each and every day!
