Drawing Joy From The Wells Of Salvation

Daily God Walk For Saturday, February 9, 2012

Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The Lord, the Lord, is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation. With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. – Isaiah 12:2-3

In the wilderness and desert regions that birthed the nation of Israel there were very few rivers, and only a small number of wells. In this twelfth chapter of Isaiah the prophecy is being put forth that there would be a well established that would be called salvation and those who draw water from that well will have great joy.
People have been coming to this well of salvation for over 2000 years and everyone who comes goes away satisfied and filled up with joy. I have seen many people come to God broken, lost and outcast from the community, and I have witnessed the change that comes over them when they partake of the water at the well of salvation.
A picture I get when I think of this refreshing well filled with an abundance of joy is that of person lost in the desert and seeking water. They may have entered the desert with high hopes and provisions for the journey, but along the way they became lost, their provisions were used up and they were, alone, thirsty and slowly dying. Then, they see it in the distance; a well in the middle of the desert. They drag themselves to the water and receive new life from the well. That is exactly what happens to all of us who find Jesus.
When we were lost and desperate, someone offered us a drink from this well called salvation and our life was forever changed. Isaiah ends this chapter with; “Shout aloud and sing for joy, people of Zion, for great is the Holy One of Israel among you.” You are at the well; drink and rejoice.

Prayer: Lord, I thank you for the wellspring of life, which is Jesus The Christ. Grant me the ability be content with the refreshing that comes from him. In Jesus name, amen.

    The Lord is my strength and song. I have limited music knowledge but yet I can write and produce songs of The Lord. I feel that I have opened my heart and mind to the wells of gifts of the spirit.for all God has given we give thanks.
