“Isaac dwelt by the well Lahai-roi.”


When I see the goodness of Jesus and all He has done for me, my very soul shall shout alleluia praise God for saving me.// It is good to praise the Lord alleluia. It is good to praise the Lord alleluia, it is good to praise the Lord alleluia, praise the Lord alleluia praise the Lord alleluia.

Gracious God we thank You, we bless Your Name, we worship You, we adore You for Your goodness and mercies in our lives. Thank You for another opportunity in your presence. Glorious God thank You, thank You, thank You now forever. We are grateful, we bow and reverence You from our heart.

Beloved, how are you doing? Hope great? Is prayer time, are you ready? Our Father answers us whenever we call and that is the confident we have that whenever we call on Him, He answers us. Today will not be an exception, He will answer us as we call. Praise God.

Beloved, how much we rely on God to answer us each time we call even when we breathe a prayer under our nose depends how well we know Him. Take for example a baby who yearn to be thrown up and catch midway as he/she is coming down is of confident that the thrower will always bring out his/her hand to catch him.

Now if we rely on God in same manner we will not be afraid when we pray but rather we will be confident that He is strong enough to bear us up from wherever we have fallen. We like the little child will demonstrate same when we pray. But how much we display this confident is relative to many things example how long do we study Him in His Word. How long we mediate on His Word. How much we are dispose to experiencing Him in our challenging times and situation not basing our belief only on what He did in other people’s life but also what we have experience of Him.

Beloved, our God is good and nothing can be sweeter than abiding in His presence. (Ps 73:28; 27:4).

All we are saying again to you is that the “Time” we spent with God determines how well we get to know Him. When we spend time with God, He renew us and bless us. Therefore, we must not neglect our quite time with God because as often as we do it, we draw water from the depth of His Being and we will be refreshed.

In our text today, beloved, we see Isaac dwelt by the well. Little wonder why he heard God when He told him to stay in land despite the famine in the land. Isaac sow and reap hundredfold in the land where famine is ravaging.

Beloved, in this month of advancement, we must stay more on the Word, mediate therein and very importantly, hear God speak to us. Remember we must not run ahead of Him, we must not start a project without hearing from Him because God will not prosper what He did not initiate. Praise God.

So it important we listen to hear, and if He is yet to speak, be still and wait on Him for He must surely speak. Oftentimes God leads us into His finish work, ours is to walk with faith and possess all He has done for us.

So let us learn to study, mediate, pray and wait to hear before we make a move. Our God is good; all the time.

Let’s discover more:

“Isaac dwelt by the well Lahai-roi.” Genesis 25:11


Hagar had once found deliverance there and Ishmael had drank from the water so graciously revealed by the God who liveth and seeth the sons of men; but this was a merely casual visit, such as worldlings pay to the Lord in times of need, when it serves their turn. They cry to Him in trouble, but forsake Him in prosperity.

Isaac dwelt there, and made the well of the living and all-seeing God his constant source of supply. The usual tenor of a man’s life, the dwelling of his soul, is the true test of his state. Perhaps the providential visitation experienced by Hagar struck Isaac’s mind, and led him to revere the place; its mystical name endeared it to him; his frequent musings by its brim at eventide made him familiar with the well; his meeting Rebecca there had made his spirit feel at home near the spot; but best of all, the fact that he there enjoyed fellowship with the living God, had made him select that hallowed ground for his dwelling.

Let us learn to live in the presence of the living God; let us pray the Holy Spirit that this day, and every other day, we may feel, “Thou God seest me.” May the Lord Jehovah be as a well to us, delightful, comforting, unfailing, springing up unto eternal life. The bottle of the creature cracks and dries up, but the well of the Creator never fails; happy is he who dwells at the well, and so has abundant and constant supplies near at hand.

The Lord has been a sure helper to others: His name is Shaddai, God All-sufficient; our hearts have often had most delightful intercourse with Him; through Him our soul has found her glorious Husband, the Lord Jesus; and in Him this day we live, and move, and have our being; let us, then, dwell in closest fellowship with Him.

Glorious Lord, constrain us that we may never leave Thee, but dwell by the well of the living God in Jesus Name. Amen.

Another study on Time in God’s department. I pray that it bless the reader in Jesus Name. let’s discover more:

 How Is It Going In The “Time With God” Department?



  • Rushed?
  • Shallow?
  • Dutiful?

Or do you have it under control with:

  • Quality time…
  • Regular time… At the level where the tap roots of your soul are being fed?
  1. M. Bounds cautions us that “TO BE LITTLE WITH GOD IS TO BE LITTLE FOR GOD.”

 Keep in mind: Satan’s strategy is to dull your spiritual hunger by playing upon your inclination towards:

  • Procrastination
  • Materialism
  • Sensuality
  • Over work

Take carelest any one of you be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.” (Hebrews 3:12, 13).

Let’s be honest enough to admit that basically we do exactly what we want to do, finding time for:

  • Golf
  • V.
  • Favored friends

And let’s be reminded that a casual approach to knowing God simply won’t cut it:

 “You shall seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah 29:1)

Passion and pursuit are the criteria for knowing God. Are you man or woman enough to rise to and sustain the challenge?

Let us in our prayer closet today ask God to help us to seek Him as we will find Him when we seek Him with our heart. Praise God.

Father hear us and bless us as we tabernacle in your Presence today. Help us to seek you early and dwell in Presence as to be bless. May it please You to answer us and teach us from your Holy Book as we search through. Praise the Lord.

Beloved is time to pray, seek and you shall find. Praise God. You will like Hagar exclaim “Thou God seest me.”

Remain ever bless in the Lord
