Daily Devotion: Digging Wells

Bible Reading: Genesis 26:18-32

Key Verse: Verse 32 – "And it came to pass the same day, that Isaac's servants came, and told him concerning the well which they had digged, and said unto him, We have found water."

Key Words: We have found water

A newspaper dated June 13, 1862, made the following report. "The army of Mississippi has taken a position near Tupelo, about fifty miles south of Corinth. It is stated that this is the first point at which a sufficient supply of water could be obtained. About one hundred wells have already been dug and more are being dug daily.”

Well-digging was also done in the days of Abraham and Isaac; ever since Hagar, in the wilderness of Beersheba, saw a well of water and filled her bottle (Genesis 21:19); ever since Abraham reproved Abimelech because of a well of water which Abimelech’s servants had violently taken away (Genesis 21:25).
Wells have not always been the same size.
Wells have not always been the same depth.
Wells have not always been the same age.
Wells have not always been dug the same way.
But water, H2O, has always been the same. It is refreshing for one’s thirst and it is comforting for those who need comfort on that hot summer day, but spiritual water is even more refreshing to the soul.

John 4:13-14, “Jesus answered and said unto her, whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him, shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.”
