31 Days of Seeing God in the Mess of Real Life

Day 5 – of earthly water and heavenly water…

 

day-5

So it’s been raining a lot here – massive understatement right there!

We have water everywhere. My nephew has water like a river flowing down his driveway!

I guess it makes the grass green. So what did I read in my morning devotions – John 4 where Jesus meets up with Samaritan woman at the well.

The topic is all about water. Boy does God like showing up everyday!

Jesus answered and said to her – Everyone who drinks of this water will get thirsty again and again. Anyone who drinks the water I give will never thirst – not ever. The water I give will be an artesian spring within, gushing fountains of endless life John 4:13-14

The Samaritan woman’s focus was on the earthly water – that was why she was there – to draw physical water. Jesus jumps right into the conversation comparing earthly things with heavenly things again.

He had a great offer for her – heavenly water that does the same thing that earthly water does but it satisfies you for longer – like forever.

If I focus on earthly satisfactions I will never fully be satisfied.

If I focus on heavenly satisfactions I will always, at all times, forever be satisfied.

Dear God,

Please help me to experience this living water today – welling up and flowing over.

Please open my eyes to heavenly things today. Help me to perceive when you are visiting me.

In the Name of Jesus – Amen – so be it!

I would love to hear how you discover God in your messy real everyday life too – please leave a comment
