Women's Daily Encouragement Blog

Strengthening Families Across the World through the encouragement of women in their high calling from God as wives, mothers and homemakers.

Posted by on in Women's Daily Encouragement Blog

WellDiggerThe early patriarchs dug wells to get their water. They couldn’t survive without a well. We also have to be well-diggers in our spiritual life. Isaiah 12:3 inspires us to draw water out of the wells of salvation. Not just one well. Do you notice the word is “wells”? Plural! There are wells for every need we have in Christ.

God’s wells are deep. Deeper than you’ll ever need. But many times we dig shallow wells. We dig a little bit into God, but we are too busy pursuing the things of this life to dig too deep. We look to other sources for our help and sustenance rather than pressing into God Himself.

And watch out. Even when you dig wells, the devil is around trying to fill them up and stop you receiving the water of life. Reading the story of Isaac in Genesis 26:15 it says: “For all the wells which his father’s servants had digged in the days of Abraham his father, the Philistines had STOPPED them, and FILLED THEM WITH EARTH.”

Dear wives and mothers of children, let’s guard our wells. Don’t let them fill up with the things of this life--earthly things, shallow things, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life. Too many Christians live shallow lives. Let’s go beyond the shallowneess and dig deep. Deep into Christ. Deep into His Word.

Let’s take our children deeper. Too many families live shallow lives. Are you satisfied for your children to live shallow lives, getting a little of the Bible here and there? They have a little bit of Christianity, but more influence from their video games and electronics. Or do you want them to become deeper in God. Do you want them to be true well-diggers? None of these things just happen. You have to teach them how to dig wells in God.

Sometimes you’ve got to dig out your wells. Get rid of all the mirky, dirty scum that’s settled on the top because the water is so shallow. Cast it out. Dig deeper.

God save us from being shallow and raising shallow-minded children. Amen.

Blessings to you today,

Nancy Campbell

NegativeMindOur thought life is our biggest temptation isn’t it? It’s so easy to allow negative thoughts, unbelieving thoughts, doubtful thoughts, depressing thoughts, self-pitying thoughts into our minds. And worry! The worst! We are consumed with worldly matters of this life. We spend more time thinking about material things and the things of this earth rather than things which are above (Colossians 3:1-3).

God asks us the question in Jeremiah 4:14: “How long shall thy vain thoughts LODGE WITHIN THEE?” It’s true that these kind of thoughts constantly come to our minds. But we don’t have to dwell on them. My girls call them their “bucket thoughts” which they constantly throw out!

More importantly, please watch that they don’t LODGE in your brain. These thoughts may come, but throw them out as soon as they come. Speak the Scriptures OUT LOUD just as Jesus did when the tempter came to him (Matthew 4:1-11). You have power to overcome through the blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony (which is also the Word of God). Read Revelation 12:11.

“Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (James 4:7).

Enjoy an overcoming day,

Nancy Campbell
