Deep Wells

by Brett Fuller

PROVERBS 20:5 says, “A plan in the heart of a man is like deep water, but a man of understanding draws it out.” In Africa, where sometimes drought is common, water is mined by drilling “bore holes.” These deep wells are sometimes thousands of feet beneath the surface. Obviously it requires more than shovel and a strong back to tap into these reserves. It takes people who both know where the water is and how to get it out.

Deep within the soul of every person is the understanding that he/she has been put on the earth for a specific reason. That reason eludes most people and unfortunately, too many breathe their last still thirsting for their ultimate purpose; but it doesn’t have to be that way. Relational connectivity is intended to be both a supply for friendship and a clarifier of destiny. We all need that person who sees the plan of God within us and possesses the requisite understanding to draw it out? If you are privileged to have someone like this, renew your interest for their input. If you lack this gift, pray and ask the Father to bring such a one into your life so you can live right and live well…
