Wells of salvation

Isaiah 12:1-6
1. And in that day thou shalt say, O LORD, I will praise thee: though thou wast angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortedst me.
2. Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.
3. Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.
4. And in that day shall ye say, Praise the LORD, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted.
5. Sing unto the LORD; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth.
6. Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee.

The Lord is my strength, I will not be afraid. We shall draw water from the wells of salvation. Isn’t that beautiful? It isn’t just one drink and we are done, left to wait for death to enter in. We get to draw water from the wells of salvation. We get to go back over and over again. We get to enjoy our salvation and the presence of the Lord as oft as we care to draw the water.
