Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Christ? John 4:29
Here is a woman who was out at the well getting her water at the hottest time of day. Little did she know that she had appointment to meet with God this day and this very hour. She was a woman who was an outcast and a misfit because she was thirsty for love in all the wrong places. She was ostracized and avoided by the women of this town because of her lifestyle living with a her fifth man who was not her husband. Today was the day that she would be set free in her soul and in her mind. Today she was to receive water that would cause her to never thirst again because it came sprung from the well of everlasting life.
Are you thirsty? Are you thirsty for love or looking for satisfaction in your life? Do you want a drink from this well and never thirst again? Jesus says if anyone thirst, let them come unto Him, and He will give them drink. If you will trust Him and accept Him as your Savior, out of your belly (your heart) shall flow rivers of living water. He will wash and cleanse your heart of all sins and His Spirit will come and dwell within you.
For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. Isaiah 43:19 (NLT)
Our Father wants to do a new thing in our lives, but He can’t if we continue to be stuck in our past. We can allow discouragement and past failures keep us down. We keep replaying our past mistakes in our minds even though we have asked for forgiveness and God has forgiven us. He said as far as the east is from the west, this is how far He has removed our sins from us. If God can make dry land in the Red Sea, can He not make a road in the wilderness or rivers in a desert? We may think our life is over, but God says no. Look at Moses. He had status in Egypt by being a son of Pharaoh’s daughter. Yet he made one great mistake by killing a Egyptian who was beating on a Hebrew slave. He tried to hide it, but even his own people told on him. He lost everything. He became a shepherd in Midian and wandered in the wilderness for 40 years, but God was positioning him for his calling. God is positioning us. He is not through with us.
Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6
