Daily Manna

Daily Manna - Oct16




“Therefore with joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.” (Isa.12:3)

Yes. Will not they be happy, when those who thirst find wells and draw water? The Lord opened the eyes of Hagar when Ishmael was about to die due to thirsty in the wilderness.  She saw a well of water, went and filled a skin with water and gave the lad a drink. When she found the well, with how much joy she would have drawn water from it. The water of that well gave life to the lad. The living water Jesus alone is the well of salvation to us. With joy, let us draw the salvation that He gives.

The Lord gave water to the Israelites by asking Moses to smite the rock (Num.21:16). He said, “Gather the people together, and I will give them water,” and asked them to dig up a well. When the leaders, the nation’s nobles, the lawgiver with their staves dug the well with one mind, the well sprang up. They drew from the dug wells with joy. They sang happily. It was true that David desired the water of the well at the gate of Bethlehem. But when three mighty men went in jeopardy of their lives and gave the water in his hand, he poured it out to the Lord and got a name of digging a well that was poured out (II Sam.23:15-17). Moreover, do we know that there is an Open Fountain for the house of David and for the inhabitants of Jerusalem, for sin and for uncleanness? Today, let us accept the salvation of Jesus, Who opened and gave His body as an open fountain. With joy, let us draw water from the wells of salvation. Amen.

Prayer: O Our Living Water and Living Fountain! Quench my thirst with the living water and give me joy. Bless me. Amen!
