In the pages of this book we will explore Isaac’s process of seeking to find and discover for himself the God of his father Abraham. Our foundational Scripture for this book is found in Genesis 26: Then Isaac dug again the wells of water which had been dug in the days of his father Abraham, for the Philistines had stopped them up after the death of Abraham; and he gave them the same names which his father had given them. Genesis 26:18-19
We will explore the journey of discovery experienced by Isaac. From that journey we will consider in our own lives the journey of discovering the provision of God our Father for ourselves. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’ John 7:38 The promise is that from within will flow the nourishing, provisional and spiritual waters from God. For some reading this, you can remember how those waters flowed in your father or mother. You can remember a time when you enjoyed those waters, and there is something inside of you that wants to dig and re-discover those waters again today in your own life. Like Isaac, however, the digging and searching for what you remember is not going to be an easy journey. But for the one who continues to the end, you will discover, like Isaac, the blessing and presence of God. And you will discover the beauty of God, making the personal connection in your life that declares He is your God and not just the God of those who have gone before you. So let us embark on this journey together as we just keep digging.
