Water From Heaven


This a painting of Hagar, see her empty vessel. Although I don’t see Ishmael anywhere. When Hagar had a child with Abraham, with Sarah’s consent, she managed to improve her status or so she thought.

While there were repeated arguments and frustration after the birth of Isaac, things turned bitter and she was driven from camp. With her son, she was soon out of water but believed God saw her and was visited by the Angel of the Lord. So probably, no wings.

It is my opinion this was Jesus, Himself as He appeared many times in the Old Testament. Even as one of the angels who visited Sarah. She was given water and told to return and do as she was told, probably not what she expected.

Many times, we too, can go astray but Jesus will direct us to water in our deserts or wildernesses. And of course, the Holy Spirit causes rivers of living waters to flow, and that can prevent the roaming as well. He will quench our thirst if we do not quench His Spirit.

Another reason to be immersed in His love.
