Let’s Draw From The Wells

I recall at some point in our ministry some years back I was preparing some material to teach in a seminar. I was studying the Word and the scriptures on the topic I’d present. The physical feeling I experienced while studying was like I was eating at a banquet. It continued to fill me as I studied the scriptures preparing for my seminar. It was a refreshing drink from the wells of God’s grace and power and more than satisfying.

I believe that’s what the Lord wants us to do when we read the Word. Let it quench our thirst. Allow His Word and truth to more than satisfy you with His love, grace, strength, and joy. Feeding on the Word is a powerful thing.

Here’s two specific scriptures we can all apply in our lives each day. Take some time to meditate on each of these and find out how the Lord amplifies His Word to you.

When Jesus met the woman at the well, He knew exactly what she needed, and since she’d come to the well for regular water, He encouraged her to look beyond and offered her something more He knew would satisfy and change her life. “But whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” (John 4:14). He got her attention, and she wanted the water He had. The result:  Her life was ultimately changed.

Also, look at King David’s word in Psalm because he knew the joy and fulfillment of reading God’s Word. He penned God’s truth in ways that helps us see and understand the all sufficiency of God’s Word both in our mouths and lives. King David relied on the Word of God, and he spoke and wrote from a life of experiencing God’s faithfulness. Here’s what he said in Psalm 119:103. “How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” (Psalm 119:103).

If you’re hungry today for more of the Lord, I encourage you to get into the Word. Read His promises. Draw from the well of what God He has for you. You won’t be disappointed.
