When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?” John 4:7 NIV
Here Jesus initiates the conversation with the Samaritan woman with a question for her, seeking help from her.
Do you seek help from others? We were not meant to go it alone in living our lives. We all need help from others.
Quite often when we seek the Lord in prayer it is not too long before we have a request for Him. But what about when He talks to us? Do we truly listen to what He has to say, or are we just seeking answers to our questions? Fulfillment of our requests is only a portion of what our communication with the Lord needs to be. We must really listen to Him, try to understand, and obey that which He asks of us.
