Jesus's encounter with the Samaritan woman who came down to the well to draw water in the heat of the day by about mid-day, she came hiding from all due to her failed life, yet met the Savior waiting for her.
The aftereffect of sin is weariness and brokenness and we even though desire to get out of it often get more into it and thus become completely lost and broken, yet even when in our failure we would ever desire to come out and seek help, God is waiting to deliver us, He has a future for us, He has hope for us.
"but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.” John 4:14 (NKJV)
God encouraged the Samaritan woman telling her that her usual way of sin will ruin her, however the living water from God will bless her and make her a blessing for others too.
Jesus knows us and thus He says...
"Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. " Matthew 11:28 (NKJV)
God knows our weary state, God knows our weaknesses and thus He desires to comfort us, He desires to give us rest.
God has a great and awesome plan for our life, even today irrespective of whatever situation we might be in, God wants to let us know this....
"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. " Jeremiah 29:11 (NKJV)
Thus, let not our heart be discouraged, rather let's hope in the Lord, for with Him we have hope at all times as in Him we have a loving God Who is all able to deliver us and lead us blissfully.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
