At the well.
God sees me. God hears me. God loves me.
This is a refrain that has been constantly through my prayers for the last five years.
God has let me know in very real way that He—the God of the Universe, the Creator, the Great I AM—sees little old me. That He hears my prayers. That He cares.
Like Hagar who met God at a desperate place, a desolate place, God has proven Himself over and over to me that He is the God who sees me.
As the old saints used to say, “I just can’t tell it all…” But I know that God has called me to tell it. To testify, to edify, to encourage others. To let others know that He has also heard their cry. That He sees you. He hears you. He loves you.
Yesterday, my brother, Pastor K. Edward Copeland, taught a Sunday School lesson on “Well Theology: The Theology of Thirst” and spoke on how God met Hagar at the well in the book of Genesis twice during her time of desperation, anxiety, hopelessness.
God spoke to me that it was time to go to this space, At the Well, again and write.
The “Well Theology” lesson reminds us that God sees us, He hears us and He loves us. He meets us at the well—at our point of need and gives us more than we bargain for. And He blesses us not just for us but for our children, and their children and their children. For our posterity. The greatest blessing is His Presence.
After Sunday school, my morning devotional reading from “Jesus Calling” was about Hagar. Talk about confirmation.
“There is no place so desolate that you cannot find Me there…No set of circumstances could ever isolate you from My loving Presence. Not only do I see you always; I see you as a redeemed saint, gloriously radiant in My righteousness.”
Then the Sunday sermon was “Restoration is on the Way.”
God is restoring me at the well—literally and figuratively. He’s resurrecting dead things. He’s healing. He’s working it out for my good because I love Him and I am calling on His Name.
Take courage today. God sees everything. He knows everything. He is with you. He is living Water. He will give you what you need at the well.
