REDIGGING THE ANCIENT WELLS
 
In Genesis 26:18 it says, “and Isaac digged again the wells of water, which they had digged in the days of Abraham his father; for the Philistines had stopped them after the death of Abraham.”  There was a real enemy that hated Abraham and his descendants – the Philistines. They tried to stop everything that God wanted to do for Abraham and his family. The seed of the Philistines came down from Mizrain, who was in Ninevah, the evil city. The Philistines went to battle with Joshua, Samson, David, Saul, Hezekiah and more. They were a constant affliction to be dealt with. In the book of Judges 3:1-4 it says that God “left them to prove Israel.”  This enemy was used often by God to bring Israel under judgement for its sin. 
 
This enemy stopped the flow of water, which is so necessary to life. Can you even imagine not having any water? Medically speaking you can only go three or four days without water before you die. These wells were filled up by the enemy to bring death to Abraham’s seed. Isaac had continuous battles to re-dig these wells.
 
Water represents the word in a spiritual sense. Have you ever been spiritually dry? It is often worse than physical dryness. It comes from not drinking from the water of the word. Satan will always try to keep us from this water. He brings blockages through discouragement, and failures to keep us from “drinking” and being refreshed. I have met so many in this condition that are spiritually dry. If it only takes three or four days to die physically without water, it must affect us greatly spiritually also when we don’t drink of the word of God daily.
 
You didn’t get into that condition overnight. If change is to come, it takes time. First, we must acknowledge who is behind this dryness and spiritual blockage. Then we also have to take the blame ourselves for not seeing it as a stronghold when we stop drinking of the spiritual water. We must not believe Satan’s lies that we will never be refreshed by God again. We must trust God in the dry spell that He wants to bring us out and that He will bring us out.
 
We all go through dry spells, but we do not have to stay there. Maybe you are the one that God is calling to re-dig a well in your family’s lives. In doing so I believe you will see it spring up and refresh those that are parched for this water.
 
Isaac was determined to re-dig those ancient wells because he knew it meant survival. Yes, he fought many battles, but in Genesis 26:32 it says, “….We have found water.”  Don’t quit digging my friends. The water is there in the well and God will bring it forth!

THE JOY OF THE LORD
 
We have often sung the song “The Joy of the Lord is My Strength. ” We also speak it occasionally. The song itself is unfortunately taken to ridiculous and unbiblical shenanigans such as “if you want joy, you must clap for it” or “jump for it” or other such demonstrative actions. That has nothing to do with the “Joy of the Lord.”
 
The saying comes from Nehemiah 8:10, “for the joy of the LORD is your strength.”  It is the Hebrew Word “chedrah” which is used only twice out of the ninety times “joy” is used in the Old Testament. The other place is Ezra 6:16 where it says that those Jews who had returned to Jerusalem from Babylonian captivity and had just completed the rebuilding of the Temple and gathered together, that they “kept the dedication of this house (temple) of God with joy.”
 
The occasion of joy in Nehemiah 8:10 came when the priest Ezra brought out the “book of the law of Moses,” which was their “bible” of that time. He then read it to the congregation who were hearing the written word of God for the first time in their lifetime. The people wept when they heard how they had transgressed the law of Moses.
 
However, Nehemiah, Ezra, and the Levites said to them in Nehemiah 8:9-10, “this day is holy unto the LORD your God. Mourn not, nor weep…go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy unto our LORD, neither be ye sorry, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.”
 
Nehemiah 8:12 tells us that their joy came “because they understood the words (of the Lord) that were declared unto them.”
 
Joy: a glad feeling; a state of happiness, especially the bliss of heaven.
 
The “joy of the LORD” is a state of peace and contentment that comes from knowing the word of the Lord and that His word is true and for us and is within us. It is not mirth, giddiness, laughter, or exhilaration. It is our gladness that we are in Him. That glad confidence gives us strength. That is the meaning of “joy” in these two passages. It is found nowhere else in the O.T. In the N.T. it comes with the peace we have in Jesus for He is the “living word” within us.
 
Ira Stanphill’s song “Happiness is the Lord” sums it up in the chorus:
           
“Real joy is mine, no matter if teardrops start; I’ve found the secret, it’s Jesus in my heart.”

PROPHETIC WORD
 
Just as the eye of the hurricane gives a false security that all is well and that the storm is over, there is soon to come a transition that will deceive many. There will be a calming from storms, and many will perceive that it is the beginning of things back to normal. But, my children, it is a false peace. The eye of the storm is only a temporary place until the rest of the storm comes. And with that storm there will be much damage and much chaos like the earth has never seen. For I am in the storm to bring cleansing to the land. The land has been polluted with innocent blood and I must cleanse it. Just as in the natural you prepare for the rest of the storm; you must be prepared for what is ahead. It will seem as all is peace and safety, but sudden destruction will come swiftly. I would say that this is the time to enter into the ark of my peace and know that that is the only place that there is true safety from the storm. For as in the days of Noah, I shut him in with myself for the days preceding the wrath that came upon the earth. You must shut yourselves in my children, for in that place, the ark of my safety and the ark of my presence is the only place that true peace comes. I love you and want you to know that these days ahead will be hard for many that do not seek me. There will be cries and terror like you have never seen. So, come aside now, and enter in and be prepared for what is about to take place. The eye of the storm will come first, then the destruction. For those that dwell in me there will be peace saith the Lord.
