Spring Wells

Just as Jesus is King of kings and Lord of lords, so His Word is the Water of waters.

What is a “springing well?”  It is one in which the water comes not from a reservoir of water beneath the ground, but from a spring that lies hidden beneath the surface of the earth.  What does this say about the water of life that is within every believer in God’s kingdom?  Volumes, my friend, volumes.  But allow me to briefly address that well of water that in within you that is “a well of water springing up into everlasting life.”  Stop for a moment to singularly consider these words of Jesus regarding the life of God within every believer.  Consider what Jesus said.

The believer should “never thirst again.”  Yet how many believers today seem to be so dry in their walk, witness, and work for the kingdom of God?  This should not be, for within each believer is “a well of water springing up into everlasting life.”  If we were considering a well drawing from a reservoir, we might understand how some might eventually run dry.  But we are NOT considering a reservoir, but a “well of water springing up into everlasting life.”  Though it may seem redundant to say it again and again, it truly cannot be overstressed.  The life we have in us is ETERNAL.  The “well of water” we have in us is “springing up into everlasting life.”  This everlasting springing is ETERNAL!

And what’s more, this is an ETERNAL WELL that springs eternal bringing the life of God within every believer.  But this is NOT the “rivers of living water” of which Jesus spoke that do not spring up within us, but flow out from us.  Dear one, there is a difference between a “well” and “rivers.”  The “well” within us is certainly springing up bringing life, but there are also “rivers” that should be flowing out of us that flow forth with power.  A well will not turn the dynamos of a hydroelectric dam, but a river will.  Imagine what “rivers” will do.  And those “rivers,” if flowing unimpeded, will enable us to enjoy the life springing up from the “well.”  But we must have the “well” before the “rivers” begin to flow.  Make sure your spring is clear and springing up freely.  There is power waiting.

So the Well Is Deep

NOTHING from God is less than “good and perfect.”  The trouble comes from how we handle it.

I’ve a question for you.  From where does “every good and perfect gift” come?  They all come “from above,” “down from the Father of lights.”  And since GodNEVER changes, it is His will to do that for you ALL the time, EVERY time.  If it doesn’t happen, it’s not God’s fault.  I see great implication in that as to the supernatural ability my Father has to supply “all my need.”  When I am at my deepest point of need, it is easily swallowed up by the depth of Father’s provision.  Oh how deep His provision must be that at man’s very best, God’s “good and perfect giftALWAYScomes down.”

In the incident from our Text for Today, the Samaritan woman at the well in Sychar tried to use natural reason to correct Jesus, telling Him the well was deep, and He had nothing with which to draw water from the well.  Oh dear saint, He who made the water certainly has the capacity to bring it forth whenever, wherever, and to whomever it is needful.  And if you need it, He WILL bring it forth if you believe.  Do not fret if the well, the situation you face, the valley in which you find yourself, is deep. Yes, the well may be deep, and you may have not rope or vessel.  But if Jesus is there at the well with you, take heart.  Refreshing water is about to spring forth, and rivers are about to flow out of your belly.  With Him there is NEVER a shortage.

But guard yourself against one of the prevailing spirits of our age; that of PIOUS SUPERIORITY.  It is seen in fallen Christian leaders.  They put their thinking, plans, and desires above those of God.  This spirit is very cunning.  It manifests toward the believer the moment he fails to believe in God’s ability.  At that moment, he declares that God is impoverished.  While we know that any such notion is ludicrous, actions like those I describe shout to the world that the church is a losing cause and God has no real solution.  My friend, your troubles, circumstances, and situations in life may be deep indeed, but the depth of God swallows it all, leaving no trace of the difficulty that seemed so deep.  Your well may be deep, but His well is deeper, and it is with your joy that draw from His well of salvation, and drawing from His well will indeed keep your joy full.
