The Well Of Salvation

Article written by Brother Bledsoe

And in that day you shall say, O LORD, I will praise thee: though You was angry with me, Your anger is turned away, and You comforted me.  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, inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of you.
Isaiah 12:1-6

Think about the “day” that is coming for the believer.  Consider that there will be no day like “that day.”  Even though there was a day that we were at enmity with God, through Christ, we are brought near to Him by the precious blood of His only begotten Son.  Now we who were far away from the household of faith are comforted by Him.  He is our salvation and in Him we will never be afraid.  He is our strength and our reason to sing the songs of praise unto Him and of Him.

Now we can draw water from the wells of salvation.  The word for “wells” is also translated “fountains” and “springs.”  In the mountains of eastern Arizona on the Apache Indian Reservation there is a pipe that comes out of the ground.  Out of that pipe comes the clearest, cleanest and freshest spring water that you will ever find.  People stop there and wait in line to fill their water jugs—some with many jugs—just to get some of this water.  I have been one of those waiting in line to fill mine.  This water is cold and refreshing because it comes from deep in the ground.

However, the water from the well of salvation comes from throne of God and is provided by His marvelous grace.  One can come to the well of salvation thirsty, dry and parched from the barrenness of life and will be immediately refreshed and overjoyed through the water of life.  As Jesus told the woman at the well in Sychar, the water that I will give you shall satisfy your thirst and you will never thirst again because it is living water.

If you find yourself spiritually parched then why don’t you go again to the “well of salvation” and partake of the water through which you will never thirst again.  Then you will have a song in your heart and will proclaim the goodness of the Lord because He will give you joy beyond measure. Amen and amen.

Beyond Understanding

It is not possible for me to fathom God.  I can understand some of what He does but with the limited ability of my mind and the limits of my lifespan I cannot comprehend eternity or God who has no beginning.
