The Holy Spirit is showing me that many of you have been digging wells for so long, but you have become discouraged because you have not experienced a breakthrough. The Lord says,"Don't give up. I have ancient wells to be opened to you. I have an abundance of fresh water to be released to you. Don't drink the stagnant water from the past, but come and receive fresh and living water."
Then He took me to the book of Genesis chapter 26:18 where Isaac reopened the wells that had been dug in the time of his father Abraham, which the Philistines had stopped up after Abraham died. I see this as an analogy of Isaac wanting to drink from the wells that his father had drank from. He wanted to rediscover the secrets to his father's spiritual strength and his personal relationship with God.
Although Isaac's servants discovered fresh water when they dug the wells, they came upon opposition as the herdsmen of Gerar quarreled with Isaac's herdsmen, saying, "The water is ours" (see Genesis 26:19-20). The first two wells which they dug were called Esek and Sitnah, which means contention and enmity. Some of you have come against people who are trying to stop up your wells with contention and enmity. They want what is rightfully yours but they will not succeed.
Then he moved from there and dug another well, and they did not quarrel over it. So he called its name Rehoboth, because he said, "For now the Lord has made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land" (see verse 22). As they went on, the Lord appeared to him and said, "Do not fear. I am with you. I will bless you and multiply your descendants for My servant Abraham's sake" (see verse 24).
Many of you are crying out to the Lord because you are in such a dry spell. You need that anointing that you've once had, and long for His presence. The Lord says to those of you who are barren and dry, "The ancient wells are being dug once again and you will be replenished. You will receive such an abundance that you will never be spiritually famished again. I desire to pour into your life more than you can ever imagine. Your wells will be overflowing.
"This water that I am releasing is not ordinary water, but it is living water that will bring breakthrough to areas of your lives that you have not been able to be set free from. It will be a cleansing stream of purified water that will not only bring refreshing and renewing to you, but you will also refresh and restore others. Don't settle for less, for I have an abundance to release to whosoever will receive," says the Lord.
Genesis 26:19-25 Also Isaac's servants dug in the valley, and found a well of running water there. But the herdsmen of Gerar quarreled with Isaac's herdsmen, saying, "The water is ours." So he called the name of the well Esek, because they quarreled with him. Then they dug another well, and they quarreled over that one also. So he called its name Sitnah. And he moved from there and dug another well, and they did not quarrel over it. So he called its name Rehoboth because he said, "For now the Lord has made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land."
Then he went up from there to Beersheba. And the Lord appeared to him the same night and said, "I am the God of your father Abraham; do not fear, for I am with you. I will bless you and multiply your descendants for My servant Abraham's sake." So he built an altar there and called on the name of the Lord, and he pitched his tent there; and there Isaac's servants dug a well.
John 4:10 Jesus answered and said to her, "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, 'Give Me a drink,' you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water."
