Isaac dug out again the wells that were dug during the lifetime of his father Abraham. The Philistines had closed them up after Abraham’s death. Isaac gave them the same names his father had given them. Isaac’s servants dug wells in the valley and found a well there with fresh water.
Water gives life and we can not have life without water. We take our water for granted most of the time, but to get the water is hard work, and that is part of why we get a water bill each moth.
Some people still have wells that they depend on and must maintain. One thing that happens to wells is sand in the well water. It must be filtered or the faucets and appliances get clogged and the water will not flow.
Imagine that you had a well on your property that stopped flowing so long ago that you even forgot that it was there. Perhaps it stopped flowing during your father’s lifetime, when you were little, and buying water from others is the only life you have known. You now have a water pipe from your local municipality, that you pay for, to get your water, and you sometimes buy bottled water at the store.
Imagine that, not only are you paying for water, but the well water on your property has minerals in it that are very beneficial to anyone that drinks it. Everything encourages you to look the other way and not remember that the well, your well, your family’s well is there; in your back yard.
Now, keep this picture of wells in your mind and think about the idea of inheritance. God invented it. We each have one and our families have them, as well as the tribes we belong to. There is inheritance to be procured on all those levels. There is gold in them there hills.
Much of our inheritances have been lost, stolen, or hidden; for many reasons. God wants us to find our inheritances. That is the green light. All we have to do is some action. Our actions are seeking and searching. If you find something, it is because you searched, you went out and looked for it. You searched because you desired what you wanted to find.
We have to get it that there is more, from God, and then seek it. We might seek the well of God’s inheritance and find it. We might also have to clean out a well that we find. We might have to guard that well from the enemy.
