Therefore with joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. (Isa 12:3)
This Scripture has always fascinated and intrigued me. This is beautiful language from the heart of our Savior God.
Here is what I hear when I read this passage:
“With great jubilation and rejoicing, I shall pull forth the knowledge of God’s love, goodness, and power from the never-ending source of blessings within me. (That source is Jesus Christ, the Lord.)” Wow! What a powerful confession and testimony!
Deep within God’s wells of salvation, we shall experience the cool water of God’s grace, strength and joy. This will refresh and strengthen our hearts and motivate us to praise and give thanks to our God.
On another level, we all know that water is necessary to sustain life. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. (Joh 14:6) We cannot have eternal life without Him. We can’t experience the blessings of God upon the righteous except through Jesus. He is the mediator and connection between God the Father and mankind. (1 Tim 2:5; Heb 8:6) The Word reminds us that Jesus lives to make intercession for us! (Heb 7:25)
The term “wells of salvation” indicate an ever-flowing, enduring, and unfailing supply of water. Jesus is not only the fountain but the water of life itself!
“. . . but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.” (John 4:14)
“He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” (John 7:38)
Take a little time to think about the “wells of salvation” that Christ has placed within you. Consider that they were put there to not only bless, heal, and to prosper YOU; but also to bless, heal, and to prosper ALL with whom you come in contact! You are a Christ-carrier so allow Him to operate through you.
