Genesis 26:18 “And Isaac digged again the wells of water, which they had digged in the days of Abraham his father; for the Philistines had stopped them after the death of Abraham: and he called their names after the names by which his father had called them.”
Genesis 26:19 “And Isaac’s servants digged in the valley, and found there a well of springing water.”
There is a salient truth and wisdom hidden deep in our focal scripture for the day which I call mentoring. Isaac didn’t just start digging wells, he dug at the exact location his father had dug several years before.
Not only that, he called the names of those wells by the same names his father had called them. What a wisdom! Isaac was indeed very smart. I guessed that while growing up, he must have taken note of the details of those wells, probably asked his father while he dug at those locations and why he called them those names.
I guessed his father must have told him, they dug at those locations because they had probably done a “geological survey” and discovered water there. His father probably told him the meaning of the names of those wells as well.
Names have spiritual implications. Names are words and words convey spirits and by implication the spirits behind those names went into action to make sure the wells have water.
John 6:63 “It is the spirit that quickeneth the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.”
Isaac learnt all these principles from his dad and carefully document them. When his own famine arose, he didn’t stress himself, he just went to the exact latitude and longitude of the wells and began to dig.
Without those details it would have been difficult because the wells have been covered and environmental conditions would have made them almost impossible to locate.
Isaac dug at the exact locations and called the wells by the same names. That was wisdom on display.
