Worship at the Well

Genesis 26:23-25

From there (open spaces) he (Isaac) went up to Beersheba, and the LORD appeared to him that night and said, “I am the God of your father Abraham. Do not be afraid, for I am with you. I will bless you and multiply your offspring because of My servant Abraham.” So he built an altar there, worshiped the LORD, and pitched his tent there. Isaac’s slaves also dug a well there.

Isaac returned to the land of his childhood as the famine ended, and he found God to be as faithful to him as He was to his father, Abraham. God had promised to bless Abraham’s descendants, and this promise spilled over onto Isaac as God’s promised son. Isaac’s blessing was not in the well; his blessing was in the presence of God. Because God was with him, wherever he dug a well, he found water.

We have a tendency to think that a blessing comes from a certain place. When we have a good job, we tend to stay there as long as we are blessed, and we often forget that God is the source of our blessing and not a job. When we move, God moves with us. For this reason, we can let go of things, people, and places in order to hold onto God’s presence. If God starts a new chapter in our lives, He will be there with us. Trying to go back to the former chapter because you feel more comfortable there will not work. God knows just how to make you uncomfortable so you will move with Him.

Isaac’s response to God’s promise was the correct response. Any time we sense God’s presence, we should worship Him. Simply acknowledge Him for who He is, and place your trust in Him. He is with you, and He is working in your life even when you can’t see it. Don’t be afraid to try new things because God is with you. God can bring water from any place as long as we worship Him.

Have a blessed day!
