Wells have always been places of great importance. They have great significance in today’s physical world as well as in the spiritual world. Naturally speaking one cannot live without water. If you live in an arid, dry area, you can expect to find water through the process of well digging. In the Bible, there were many wells (fountains) that were dug. One story that comes quickly to mind is the story of when Hagar met the angel at the fountain (well or spring of water).
“But the Angel of the Lord found her by a spring of water in the wilderness on the road to Shur. “ – Gen 16:7
In Genesis 26:18, Isaac dug again the wells his father dug.
“And Isaac dug again the wells of water which had been dug in the days of Abraham his father, for the Philistines had stopped them after the death of Abraham; and he gave them the names by which his father had called them.” – Gen 26:18
When it came time for Isaac to have a wife, his father sent his most trusted servant to seek one from Abraham’s family. Consider this fact… Rebekah was found at the well. The well represents life’s sustaining power and the place of answered prayer.
Look at Gen 24:13 – 16:
“See, I stand here by the well of water, and the daughters of the men of the city are coming to draw water.
And let it so be that the girl to whom I say, I pray you, let down your jar that I may drink, and she replies, Drink, and I will give your camels drink also–let her be the one whom You have selected and appointed and indicated for Your servant Isaac [to be a wife to him]; and by it I shall know that You have shown kindness and faithfulness to my master.
Before he had finished speaking, behold, out came Rebekah, who was the daughter of Bethuel son of Milcah, who was the wife of Nahor the brother of Abraham, with her water jar on her shoulder.
And the girl was very beautiful and attractive, chaste and modest, and unmarried. And she went down to the well, filled her water jar, and came up.”
In John Chapter 4, we find Jesus meeting the Samaritan woman who was at the well in the noonday. This was a time of day that was hot and uncomfortable. Most women drew water early or in the evening of the day. This woman, who was an outcast, made her way to the well unobstructed and unhindered by others. She came at such a time as that she would avoid others. But there, she met Jesus at an appointed time. Jesus extends to her an opportunity to receive a drink from the Well of Living Water, where she would thirst spiritually no more. The woman who was thinking naturally was perplexed as she saw that Jesus had nothing to draw water with from the well. She further goes on to indicate that the well was deep.
“She said to Him, Sir, You have nothing to draw with [no drawing bucket] and the well is deep; how then can You provide living water? [Where do You get Your living water?] – Joh 4:11
The spiritual well Jesus was referring to is one where if she accepted Him as the Gift of God, He would give her ‘Water’ that was literally alive by the Spirit of God. ‘The Water’ would ensure she would never be dry in her spirit again. The Water that He offered her would quench the thirst of a seeking and searching soul.
When a person has received the Gift of Jesus Christ as Savior, great joy becomes resident within their spirit. This joy allows them to draw the Living Water out of the Wells of Salvation.
“Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.” – Isa 12:3
As noted, the woman at the well states that the well is deep. What a true statement that was, for the Wells of God are deep. Very deep indeed! They offer a vast reservoir that will never run dry. Whatever we may need in the way of forgiveness, love, joy, peace, health, strength, power, redemption, rejuvenation, sanctification, holiness, and the list goes on and on. They can be found in the Wells of Living Water.
Our spirit man is also a well. As we learn to praise the Lord and seek Him, everything that we need will come up and flow out of this living well. Let us drink today from that well. Let us praise Him, for He has supplied each and every need abundantly!
“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:19
With every praise, every song and every prayer, you dip into the Well of Salvation and pull up a fresh drink of Living Water.
“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” – Ephesians 3:20-21
May God’s Grace Abundantly Reign In Your Life!

“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.”
According to the Scripture, Romans 8:28 says- “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.” The questions is, how do all these things work out to our benefit? God is a “God that declares “The End” from “The Beginning”. However, we must understand that He is also a God of process. There is a process that takes from the beginning unto the end.
