Deep waters . . . that is how the Bible describes the words of the mouths of men. They can be deep waters. You hear what they are saying - but do you fully understand what they really mean. The times where I thought I knew what someone was saying - and found out later I did not yet know as I should have known are more than I care to remember. This is why miscommunication happens so often. It is because many of us are very deep wells. We say something out loud - but the meaning of what we've said lays much deeper within us. To try to fully understand it we'd really have to take an expedition into the deep recesses of our minds and our souls.
The fountain of wise is much different. It is a bubbling brook. God offers to us much wisdom in the Scriptures. Contrary to what some people say - the vast majority of this wisdom is easy to grasp. The Bible is not a hidden document that requires some kind of decoder to understand. It is plainly written and says very plain things in very plain language. There is a beautiful Scripture that helps us understand how God's Word comes to us as a bubbling brook. In John 7 Jesus said that if we thirsted and drank from Him, out of our innermost being would flow rivers of living water. Then we read that this is the ministry which the Holy Spirit would bring to our lives. Do you realize that God has given you a teacher, the Holy Spirit, who desires to be rivers of living water in your life? Do you realize that God wants to have His wisdom flow in rivers of living water from you - and within you? There is a fountain of wisdom the Lord wants to manifest in and through you - a bubbling brook of water that will refresh your soul and grant you wisdom when you need it during your day. Learn to turn to the Lord for that wisdom - for grace to deal with decisions and difficult situations in your life. It will not be like one drawing water from a deep well - but rather will be the Lord working by His Spirit - bubbling up the wisdom you need from the Scriptures - and giving you the guidance you need for each and every situation. James put it this way, "If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God and it will be given to him." Turn to God with all your questions and decisions - then trust Him to grant you that bubbling brook of wisdom as His Spirit brings His Word to your mind.
