Jesus said to her,” Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but those who drink of the water that I will give will never be thirsty. The water that I will give will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life.”
John 4: 13-14
Lord, you amaze me.
You approached the Samaritan woman – unheard of in your time – to asked her for her water.
You knew what would happen.
You knew her better than she knew herself.
You knew her sin.
Yet you still came to her in her place and time and spoke to her in a way she understood. You spoke about water to a thirsty person.
I know you approach me too in my place of need.
You come to me without me first asking. You are already here.
You know exactly what will be happening next in my journey.
You know me better than I know myself.
You know my sin.
Yet you still come to me here, in this place and in the perfect time when my heart will soften and I will hear your words with the ears of my heart.
I thirst for more of you, Lord. I am dry and parched for your message of hope and life.
I deeply crave that never-ending spring of life within me – one not only to satisfy me temporarily but for all eternity.
Gush into my life, Lord. Pour your wisdom into my heart. May I forever flow in your grace-filled stream of living water.
