Our Great Inexhaustible Well

They that are delivered from the noise of archers in the places of drawing water, there shall they rehearse the righteous acts of the LORD -Judges 5:11

Our text tells us of wells cleared from the foe, and speaks of those who “are delivered from the noise of archers in the places of drawing water.”

We thank God that we who are the children of the Most High, have wells to go to. The world is a wilderness; say what we will of it, we cannot make it into anything else. “This is not our rest; it is polluted.” We are passing through the desert of earth to the Promised Land of heaven, but we praise God that we have wells to drink of on the road. As Israel drank at Elim, and as the patriarchs drank at Beersheba, so have we wells of salvation, out of which we joyfully draw the living water. Our great inexhaustible well is the Lord Jesus Christ. He is, indeed, the great “deep that lieth under,” the “deep that coucheth beneath,” the secret spring and source from which the crystal streams of life flow, through the wells of instrumentality and ordinance. “All my fresh springs are in Thee.” Whenever we come to the Lord Jesus Christ, we drink and are refreshed. No thirst can abide where He is. “He that drinketh of the water that I shall give him,” saith He, “shall never thirst.” Glory be to His name, we know the truth of this-

“I came to Jesus, and I drank
Of that life-giving stream;
My thirst was quenched, my soul revived,
And now I live in Him.”

As often as we muse upon His person, commune with Him in holy fellowship, think of His wounds, triumph in His ascension, and long for His second advent, so often doth our spirit drink of the water of the well of Bethlehem, and we lift up our head. ~ C.H. Spurgeon
