Spring up, O well

“There the Israelites sang this song:

“’Spring up, O well!
    Yes, sing its praises!'” ~ Numbers 21:17, NLT

“Jesus answered her, ‘Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again. But whoever drinks the water that I give him will never be thirsty again. But the water that I give him will become in him a spring of water [satisfying his thirst for God] welling up [continually flowing, bubbling within him] to eternal life.’” ~ John 4:13-14, AMP

Spring Up, O Well

Lord, even though You are my peace, my sure place, the One who orders my steps … I find myself overwhelmed. I need You to spring up, O well.

I recognize I’m trying to do everything myself, in my own strength, in my own way. That’s where the problem is, isn’t it? That’s why I’m dry and parched — thirsty for Your living water.

Spring up O well

It is abundantly available to me, Lord. Why, O why, would I choose to do things myself? Why would I choose the hard way over the blessed way?

Please forgive me. Spring up, O well — I’m ready to drink from Your life-giving resources. Spring up, O well and overflow into all the weary and worn places of my soul.

Let me drink long from Your well of living water. Saturate me from Your exhilarating fountain. Anoint me with a fresh anointing to do Your will, to accomplish the work of my heart and hands.

Fresh anointing.

Renewed strength and resolve.

Refreshed soul.

Spring up, O well of God and make me whole again.

In the Name of Jesus I pray,

Amen — let it be so
