Dying Of Thirst

Article written by Brother Bledsoe

Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. Therefore with joy shall you draw water out of the wells of salvation. And in that day shall you say, Praise the LORD, call upon His Name, declare His doings among the people, make mention that His Name is exalted. Sing unto the LORD; for He has done excellent things: this is known in all the earth. Cry out and shout, you inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in your midst.
Isaiah 12:2-6

Don’t you like the positive way that Isaiah writes the words above? He begins with the words, “God is my salvation.” He is not looking for another means of salvation because God is his salvation. He is not looking toward the strength of an army; the wisdom of a king, a prophet; or anything else—God is and God is his salvation and the One in whom he trusts; his strength and his reason to sing the joyful songs.

If God is all that to you, you shall drink water from the wells of salvation. As you know, without water to drink, one dies. People died trying to cross “Death Valley” in the summertime because they didn’t have enough water, but all the while there is a raging river of water underground and it was under their feet all the while. They didn’t know and did not have the means to get to it. But you can draw water from the wells of salvation at any time and all the time for the Holy Spirit is the “well of water that is springing up” in you. Jesus gave you that “Well.” So, go ahead and shout the victory for “great is the holy One of Israel in the midst of you. Jesus is all you need so shout.

Will Thompson wrote a song that blesses me. It goes: “Jesus is all the world to me; my life, my joy, my all. He is my strength from day to day, without Him I would fall. When I am sad to Him, I go; no other one can cheer me so; when I am sad, he makes me glad, He’s my friend.”

So, look again to Jesus. Whatever your trial, He is your best friend. The “well” is full of cool, refreshing water so go ahead, put your bucket in and fill it up and drink. God promises you that you will be blessed. Amen, amen and amen

Hey, I’m Trying To Get Your Attention!

If only the lost souls of this generation would listen, they would find that Jesus will be their best friend and the one and only Savior that they will need. They would find that it all will be theirs free of charge even though what He offers is priceless and precious. Perhaps through our witness of wonderful joy we can lead the unsaved to the saving knowledge of Christ.  What do you think?

Maybe Take A Closer Look

God knows our heart therefore we might as well be honest with Him.  If we have not received answers to our prayers, perhaps we need to take a close look at ourselves.  We know that God still answers prayer—that is not debatable.  We know that He still performs miracles and that is not debatable.  We know that some people still get through all of the “stuff” of this life to get to God for the miracles that they need.

Born Again

When Jesus told Nicodemus that he must be born again it was beyond the man to comprehend even as it is to modern man. Nicodemus would later come to understand and would become a follower of Christ. If you don’t know Christ in the full pardon of your sins; just watch those who truly believe.
