“but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life." (John 4:14)
Over the years I’ve learned to wait on the Lord with a peace beyond human understanding. That doesn’t mean I’m not wanting a fast response, but if the Lord doesn’t answer to direct me in the direction He chooses I know that there is a reason. There can actually be many reasons and often one of those reasons is that I’m not quite ready to go there yet or I’m expecting to go in another direction and would miss His response. He knows my every thought and intent of my heart even more so than I do. “O LORD, You have searched me and known me. You know when I sit down and when I rise up; You understand my thought from afar. You scrutinize my path and my lying down, and are intimately acquainted with all my ways. even before there is a word on my tongue, behold, O LORD, You know it all.” (Psalm 139:1-4) Sometimes I am just not there...do you know what I mean? I am physically where I am supposed to be but not mentally. When I am mentally not where I’m needed to be I miss what the Holy Spirit wants to share with me.
