“If you knew the generosity of God and who I am, you would be asking me for a drink, and I would give you fresh, living water.” John 4:10 MSG
While the woman of Samaria and I have many differences, we have one thing in common. I, too, find myself from time to time running on empty. In the busyness of work demands, kids’ activities, ministry needs, and even the excitement of opportunity; I sometimes wake up and realize, I am so dry and thirsty.
Invariably, when I examine myself, the reason for the dryness of spirit can be traced to one thing. I’m not drinking freely of the Water of Life. I’m neglecting my Bible Study. I’m rushing through my prayer time. I am simply sitting by the water; I am not drinking from it.
I’m not listening to the voice of the Lord because I’m just too busy to be still.
At those times I carve out quiet interludes to confess my sins, read, meditate, pray, listen, and just drink Him in.
Thank you, dear God, for giving us today. You are my living water from the well that never runs dry.
