“Now Jacob’s well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.”
(John 4: 6)

In the course of Jesus’ journey to Galilee, He was wearied by His journey and He went and sat on Jacob’s well. Jesus was tired and He found succor in a well. The well seemed to soothe Jesus’ weariness. Whatever impact Jesus’ journey had on Him seemed to find solution when He sat at the well.

Friend, regardless of what life throws at you, always stop at the well. When the battles and challenges of life weaken and batter you, stop at the well. When unanswered prayers want to discourage you, stop at the well. When you are knocked out by the conspiracies of men, look for the ‘well’ and stop there.

A well is a water source; in Ephesians 5 vs. 26, water is compared to God’s word. When life wearies and knocks you out, turn to God’s word and it will give you hope. When men turn against you, turn to God’s word and it will give you an escape route. When problems seem unending, embrace God’s word and it will help you end the trouble; when faced with battles you can’t fight by yourself, turn to God’s word and in it, you will find victory over the enemy.


When you peep into God’s word, you will see light at the end of the tunnel, you will see that all hope is not lost, you will discover that God being on your side is more than everyone against you, you will see that your troubles have an end, you will see that your limitations can’t stop you, and you’ll see that whatever can weary you isn’t strong enough to stop you.

Whatever happens, never forget to stop at the well. Whatever you face, never forget what God’s word says concerning you. When you have no other place to stop, stop at the well.

Pray With Me: Lord, I choose to turn to Your word when I am wearied by life’s journey, in Jesus’ name!

Good morning to you.
I wish you God’s divine touch in today’s service.
Happy Sunday.
