Day 4 and I’m excited — I know that day 4 usually starts bringing the breakthroughs. Breakthrough the hunger barrier, breakthrough in the Word, revelation, restoration, repentance …..
Today as I’m reading John chapter 4 it’s the story of the Samaritan woman at the well. We all know this story pretty well, the disciples went into town to buy food and Jesus stayed back, he was sitting at Jacobs well and have an encounter with this woman… it’s a fantastic story about HIM being the Messiah and salvation.
When the disciples get back with the food they find him energized and having this encounter with this woman. Makes me laugh none of the disciples had the guts to say what they were feeling… WHY IS HE WITH A SAMARITAN???? Any way they come back with food and tell Jesus “Rabbi, eat something” and Jesus response to them is basically no, I’m good…. they talk to each other asking “did someone bring him food while we were gone?” and Jesus explained:
“My nourishment comes from doing the will of God, who sent me, and from finishing his work….”
THERE IT IS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
As humans we eat, most of us eat when we do not even need to eat and for the most part most of us are all over weight and in not such good health from it. We eat to satisfy, to fulfill, to try and bring some type of satisfaction or happiness. Jesus said….
1. Nourishment comes for doing the will of God. The will of God as we all know is to love him with all we have, allowing Him to love us, and telling the world about it. SO, seek nourishment with Him. Know, live and walk out this in our lives daily. FEED YOUR SPIRIT-MAN, not your stomach. We will be healthy, have strength and probably eat right for the rest of our lives.
2. And finishing his work. Don’t check out, finish the work that you start with him, listen to his voice, his calling and GET out there. You will be nourished by finishing the work he has giving you!!!!
Such a good word today!!!!
