God calls Himself “the Spring of living water” (Jeremiah 2:13). He is saying, “I am the Source of Life.”
Jesus said, “if anyone thirsts let Him come to Me and drink. He who believes in me, as the scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water…” (John 7:37-38)
And He said, “…the water I give will become in them a spring of living water continually welling up to eternal life.” (John 4:14)
It’s the Holy Spirit in our spirit, continually flowing in and through our lives. Holy Spirit dwells IN us.
Digging our well is complete surrender to Holy Spirit, responding to His every word. This makes more and more room for Him in our lives. When we allow Him to remove all the clutter that pollutes and muddies our well: negative emotions, past hurt, unforgiveness, wrong thinking, doubt, fear… He replaces it with more of Himself and our well will be clean and clear and pure and refreshing and life-giving… A source of life not only for ourselves, but for everyone else who comes into our world.
