I Prayed have prayed
Dear God, cause a well of hope to spring up in Your people as we sing to You! Please cause an unexplainable hope and faith to arise now, across this world. We ask in Jesus name. Amen.

Recently the Lord reminded me of an article I had once read by Dave Kubal.  As I revisited the article, the Lord spoke to my heart, giving me instruction for the Body of Christ and its intercessors. Dave’s article was an encouragement indeed.  In it, he spoke of God restoring the wellsprings of our nation. He described how the Summerhouse, a well and an update to the Capitol grounds in the 1800’s, became a place of refreshment and rest to those visiting. He then shared a Word the Lord gave him…

“I heard that the wellsprings of this nation being drawn upon by godly leaders, in turn restoring freedom and godly values. In the physical or natural realm, we are seeing evidence of what God is doing in the natural (spiritual) realm. He is fixing and restoring and rebuilding those foundational springs that are welling up in our nation. God is restoring the wellsprings of our nation.” (Dave Kubal)

As I read these words, I felt very much like Mary when she visited Elizabeth while they were both with child.  This amazing prophetic promise, about to be birthed, jumped in my spirit.  God immediately spoke to me and said, “Spring up o well!” I quickly grabbed my Bible and turned to the scripture Numbers 21:16-18.

And from thence they went to Beer: that is the well whereof the Lord spake unto Moses, Gather the people together, and I will give them water. Then Israel sang this song, Spring up, O well; sing ye unto it: The princes digged the well, the nobles of the people digged it, by the direction of the lawgiver, with their staves. And from the wilderness they went to Mattanah.

In the Strong’s Concordance, the word, ‘princes’ talks about leaders, rulers, and those in authority. Even more interesting is the word ‘lawgiver’ which means by decree, or something decreed.

Job 22:28 says, “Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.”

This story in the book of Numbers was the first time the children of Israel had sung (which is a form of a decree) since crossing the Red Sea in Exodus 15. Although they sang to the Lord after He destroyed their enemies in the Red Sea, afterwards they forgot His mighty works. And they could do nothing but murmur and complain as they continued their journey through the wilderness.

As we reflect on the story in Numbers, we find when they were again in desperate need, this time for water, their Deliverer once again spoke and brought deliverance. And once again, they began to sing.

Israel, in its entirety, sang to this well, decreeing what God had said to it.  “Spring up, o well!”  They sang based solely on the Word and direction of God.  As they did, the well sprang up and they had plentiful water to drink and in which to water their animals.

How does this apply to the word from Dave Kubal?

God is saying, “I will restore the wellsprings of this nation.”  The wellsprings of our nation are the wells that were established by our leaders and those in authority over our nation – just like the scripture in Numbers 21.  It doesn’t take much to see those wells have been stopped up from the many years of sin, deception, and evil leadership of our nation. But God. He is reestablishing those wells and restoring them back to a place that will provide refreshment and a place to rest for the people of this great land.

This is exciting news. So, what is our part?  What do we do to help establish this promise God has spoken to restore our wells?  I believe the instruction the Lord gave me for the Body of Christ, is the same as we see in Numbers 21. Sing! Sing to the wells! “Spring up o well!!!”

The people of Israel sang to the well before it was dug…before they drank water…before they saw the fulfillment of the promise. We must do the same thing.

Are you ready to once again drink from the wells of freedom, godly values, rest, and refreshment in our nation?  If so, I encourage you today to begin to sing to those wells. Sing!  Sing aloud.  Sing in your heart. Whatever else you do, sing…. Decree to those wells through song… “Spring up o well!” As those wells spring up, may we all drink from the restored wells of freedom, rest, refreshment, and godly values in this wonderful America once again…just as He promised.

In keeping with this word from the Lord, please share your favorite psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit in the comments.

Psalm 150
1 Praise the Lord.[a]

Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens.
2 Praise him for his acts of power;
praise him for his surpassing greatness.
3 Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
praise him with the harp and lyre,
4 praise him with timbrel and dancing,
praise him with the strings and pipe,
5 praise him with the clash of cymbals,
praise him with resounding cymbals.

6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.

Praise the Lord!

I read this aloud earlier today, 2x and I likely will again a few more times before the day is over.

Colossians 3.16
Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God
Born of his Spirit, washed in His blood
This is my story, this is my song
Praising my Savior all the day long
This is my story, this is my song
Praising my Savior all the day long
Perfect submission, perfect delight
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight
Angels descending bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love
This is my story, this is my song
Praising my Savior all the day long
This is my story, this is my song
Praising my Savior all the day long
Praising my Savior all the day long

Psalm 121: “I lift up my eyes to the hills, from whence comets my help? My help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth…”- He will keep us, protect us and preserve us from evil for evermore. Despite small setbacks, He is there and He will not desert us! God, revive your hope in us!

Just this past Sunday in church, we sang the song “Sovereign Over Us.” Here is a small portion of this truly wonderful song:
“ Even what the enemy means for evil
You turn it for our good
You turn it for our good and for Your glory
Even in the valley, You are faithful
You’re working for our good
You′re working for our good and for Your glory

Your plans are still to prosper
You have not forgotten us
You’re with us in the fire and the flood
You′re faithful forever
Perfect in love
You are sovereign over us”

I raise a hallelujah
In the presence of my enemies
I raise a hallelujah
Louder than the unbelief
I raise a hallelujah

My weapon is a melody
I raise a hallelujah
Heaven comes to fight for me

Spring up o well, this desert is dry, our bones are like those in Ezekiel’s valley. Speak to us Holy Spirit and we shall be renewed and brought to Life as an exceedingly great army. Open the flood gates of heaven, let it Rain!
