How

Only Jesus can do immeasurably more | Call my friend, Faith ...

Joining with the #Five Minute Friday group of writers to write on a one word prompt for 5 minutes. Today’s prompt is: How

In my Ladies’ Bible Study we have been studying the Woman at the Well in Samaria and when Jesus offers her living water she is puzzled. How would He get this water, where would it come from? He had no bucket and the well was deep – two obstacles stood in His way, two impossibilities.

Jesus replied, “If you only knew the gift God has for you and who you are speaking to, you would ask me, and I would give you living water.

”11“But sir, you don’t have a rope or a bucket,” she said, “and this well is very deep. Where would you get this living water?

John 4:11

But with God all things are possible! His ways are Higher than our ways, His thoughts Higher than our thoughts! We may not know how He will do something, we may not know where our supply may come from, but we can trust the one who promised that He could and would supply all our needs and that He would be with us.

We may be facing some obstacles, there may be impossibilities in the way BUT God! We may not not the “hows, whys or wherefores,” but we may know the Great I AM, the God who will provide us with living water from Himself, the very source of life.

He will open the way and provide the means, we don’t know how and we don’t know when, but we trust His Word, we trust Him.

  1. I love your application of the question HOW? Sometimes I ask God this too, and He answers me much like Jesus answered the woman at the well: You don’t even understand what I’m talking about. And also like this encounter, He patiently explains and leads me back closer to Him until I have everything I need. I pray I respond like the Samaritan woman, telling others about my encounters with God.

  2. Great post; I needed to read this now, because night is falling and for me, that’s scary…chest pain and shortness of breath come with any doze, and deep sleep doesn’t happen.

    How will I get through the next hours? With God, and that’s it.
