“And he moved from there and dug another well, and they did not quarrel over it. So he called its name Rehoboth, because he said, “For now the LORD has made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land.”
-Quarrel in Hebrew is written as kwor’-el which means conflict, strife, squabble, dispute, contention or a noisy dispute usually marked by anger.
-There was a famine in Canaan beside that which Abraham had experienced, & he move to Gerar where Abimelech was the king of Philistines. As Isaac dug wells, the Philistines quarreled him & took over his wells, but God encouraged him by assuring him protection. It came a time after Isaac had dug many wells & went through a multitude of challenges when he found water & named the well Rehoboth for the Lord had made room for them to be fruitful. God blessed Isaac fulfilling the promise He had made to his father Abraham & he reaped a hundred fold in the land, began to be prosperous, continued to prosper & became very prosperous, then moved to Beersheba (the well of the covenant) where he made an altar & worshipped God. Through Christ we receive the promise of the Abrahamic covenant, Davidic covenant, eternal covenant, covenant of peace & many other promises through grace. In the same way Isaac went through trials, tribulations & quarrels through the famine, we also have our fair share of trials. Through trials we get more dependent on Gods’ grace & our faith in Him is strengthened. Through faith; we also partake of Gods’ blessings as the seeds of Abraham & co-heirs with Christ as we move from one glory to the next & positively impart other people’s lives.
We rejoice in Your everlasting love for us Jesus, thank You for this far You have brought us & cover us with Your blood. Many are the wells we dig in relationships & marriage, health, work & finances, family & friendship, leadership & vision & many other wells Lord, guide us so that we may bear much fruit in the land. Strengthen us Father to cast out all doubt from our hearts at the wake of high fuel prices, high cost of living, pressures of life, slow business, delay in answers to prayer & many other uncertainties Lord; for You are our Father & Provider. Increase & encourage us even as we overcome all these challenges through Your grace. Make room for us to be fruitful in all things Lord so that we may begin to prosper, continue to prosper & become very prosperous, all for Your glory. Merciful Father; bring all our prayer intentions & heart desires to pass according to Your will; for Your promises never fail. Amen
