John 7:38 (ESV); Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’”
The Bible is not random in its allegories, names, places or events. God, the grandmaster of design seeks to show us a pattern through these precepts, verses and lines.
For example, the Bible gives us instances of how some of the matriarchs of the Bible met the patriarchs. It is no mistake that some of these meetings happened by wells. The first is Rebecca. She met the servant of Abraham, in his quest for a wife for Isaac at a well (Genesis 24). Jacob met Rachel at a well (Genesis 29). The same pattern is repeated in the life of Moses and Zipporah who met at a well (Exodus 2).
What is God telling the Church through this repetition?
The women in these stories represent the helper, the Holy Spirit in the New Testament. The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to not only introduce you to the wells of the Spirit but also to help you draw from the bottomless depths of God.
In 1 Corinthians 2:10 (AMP), the Bible says, “for the Spirit searches all things [diligently], even [sounding and measuring] the [profound] depths of God [the divine counsels and things far beyond human understanding].”
This pattern in scripture teaches us that no intimacy with God can ever be achieved without the aid of the Holy Spirit. May your life of communion be defined by this understanding.

GOLDEN NUGGET: The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to not only introduce you to the wells of the Spirit but also to help you draw from the bottomless depths of God.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for Your Spirit in me. I live in His overflow. In me are more than just wells, but rivers of living water. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
