After using up their water supply, then began to dig under the sand in hopes of finding water.
But unfortunately none of them were able to find any, and none survived the ordeal.
Several years later, it was found out that there was indeed water just a few feet below the spot where they were digging. If they hadn't given up, they would've been able to drink fresh water to their heart's content.
The same can be said about doing good, particularly in relation to today's Scripture.
Whenever you are struggling with life, or having a bad break at your career, or having a difficult time with a relationship, you are simply experiencing a dry spell.
Don't quit. Dig. Rake in the soil and dig like there's no tomorrow because you never know when the Lord shall shower you with His favor and blessings, whose arrival into your life is only a matter of time.
Keep digging until you tap in to the well of the Lord's goodness!
