The Wrong Well

32
I stood at the bathroom sink slowly brushing my teeth, dazed. What’s wrong with me? I asked the Lord. Why can’t I hear you today? Why do I feel like this? I was numb today at times. And sad when I wasn’t numb. No joy. As I continued brushing my teeth, frustrated at the lack of response from the Lord though I sought Him, what I studied this morning came back to me. The woman at the well. And then I saw what happened to me today. I had stood at the wrong well. I repented, finished brushing my teeth, and the joy was back. God’s well of love, hope, joy, peace, light, grace, forgiveness, and so very much more had not gone anywhere at all. I had wandered away from His well, and the Lord showed me exactly what I had done. I had gone to the wrong well.

I had returned to the world today to answer my thirst. I had gone to the world with old expectations. I had held up my cup to the world and wondered why my cup ran empty. I had yoked myself once more with the world – instead of being yoked to the Lord. And as the day wound down to a close, I wondered why I was thirsty. I wondered why I was spiritually dehydrated. I had gone back to a very old place that God had told me to leave behind, my cup in hand, waiting, waiting, for what would not come. Until I sought the Lord tonight, and He gently, lovingly, mercifully drew me back to Himself. My Lord, whose well never runs dry. 
Oh Lord how I thirst for you. I thank you for your endless mercy. For your grace. For your love that fills up my cup until I can’t see the cup at all, it overflows out into the world all around. Forgive me for going back there. Thank you for filling me once more. Thank you that your well never runs dry, and you keep my cup overflowing so long as I yoke myself to Jesus and hold out my heart to be filled by you. I love you, my Lord! 

“Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies : thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.” Psalm 23:5 KJV

“As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.” Psalm 42:1 KJV

“The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well isdeep: from whence then hast thou that living water? 12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob,which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle? 13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: 14 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.” John 4:11-14 KJV

“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden , and I will give you rest . 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke iseasy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 KJV
