Jacob’s well was there, and Jesus, tired as he was from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about noon. John 4:6 NIV
We must remember that Jesus faced the same limitations within a human body as anyone else. He tired from His daily ministry and from traveling distances. It should also be noted that in the Judea/Samaria area it can get very warm during the noon time hour, even during winter months. The heat also would have tired our Lord. Thus, He decided to stop for a rest, as His disciples traveled onward to buy provisions. He stopped by Jacob’s well, preparing the way for a conversation with a Samaritan woman.
When you feel weak, realize that our Lord did also feel weakness in body. Belonging to Christ does not mean that our physical limitations change, but it does mean that we now have spiritual insight that we did not possess before. Stop and rest in the Lord!
