    Simon Peter said to them, 'I'm going fishing.' They told him, 'We are also coming with you.' They immediately went out, and entered into the boat. That night, they caught nothing. But when day had already come, Jesus stood on the beach, yet the disciples didn't know that it was Jesus. John 21:3 WEBP...

The Hidden Well

  • God heard the voice of the boy. The angel of God called to Hagar out of the sky, and said to her, 'What troubles you, Hagar? Don't be afraid. For God has heard the voice of the boy where he is. Get up, lift up the boy, and hold him with your hand. For I will make him a great nation.' God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water. She went, filled the container with water, and gave the boy a drink. Gen. 21:19 WEB

    Hagar wandered in the desert of Beersheba with her son, rejected, alone, despised, homeless, and now an outcast. Finally, she ran out of water and when all hope was gone, with her son about to die of thirst, she sat down and wept bitterly. God heard the boy crying and opened her eyes to see a well of water that was near her.

    There was plenty of water near by, but Hagar could not see it. Their cry caused God to open her eyes and to be able to see what was around her. We can have 20/20 vision and still be blind (Rev 3:17). God is our ultimate source, not what we are able to see or obtain with our own eyes and strength.

    God will hear your cry too, and there may be a well of water right beside you as you walk through your own personal desert. Sometimes He can make a little go a long way. Cry out to the Lord and put your trust in Him, for it is He that causes the blind to see.

    Prayer: Father, please open my eyes to see the resources around me. Help me put what You have already given me to the best use. Help me make the right decisions and give me wisdom in life management, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

David and Dianna Wylesedited: April 3, 2016 Amen! Thank you... I seem to be in that desert place... IDK... I know it's all a lie from satan and yet... I am in this moment of dispair that is a challenge at best to redirect! I have been telling the great deciever to get out of my head for a couple days and I can see it is his lies but feel them just the same. I can not understand for the life of me how I can know without a doubt and be able to count blessings one by one and still can't shake feelings I know are lies? Depression and Satan are EVIL. I am so done feeling like a burden to those around me over this stupid depression! Father HELP ME NOW!!!!Only you can make it stop! Only you can calm this child right now.There is no storm!  It's all a lie! I am provided for! I am safe and secure! I am loved and accepted! I am held by you Father! I am blessed I am Blessed I am Blessed! Amen... Sorry! It's only a moment and it's all ok. Thank you for  this message. Pastor's Prayer: Father, please open my eyes to see the resources around me. Help me put what You have already given me to the best use. Help me make the right decisions and give me wisdom in life management, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.         Dianna

Twila Stierwalt When Jesus died and His Father raised him from the dead, sasan was fatietly woonded. Faith in God is belief in action. Satan has no power over you, believing this is so important. Feelings lie to you,the truth sets you free.

Kath Paro
Kath Paro Dion~ Your messages are always right on time.  God, my Higher Power told me to seek others to the answers to the evils that plagued my mind for several days.  The water was right in front of me, all I had to do was open my eyes and ask.  By doing this, the evil was dispelled of and I was able to rest peacefully.  Thank you for helping me see and seek this hidden well.

Karen Pasquinelli Amen!!  Thank you for this message.  I have an envelope sitting next to me with an application for an apartment in California, but I think it is with nursing care which is not needed.  Since, I am unsure I will check the place out carefully online, then I will know for sure.  Maybe it is both and rent will be affordable, then I will fill it out and send it in.
