I cannot see it…

“Sir,” the woman said, “you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water?”  John 4:11Traditional well in Senegal, Tambacounda region

The Samaritan woman talking to Jesus was confused.  How in the world could one could get water without a rope and a bucket (or a pot)?!  Yet Jesus had clearly said that He had water and she could have some of it.  She was perplexed.

I think I must be like her sometimes – it seems like I limit the work of God, I hesitate in obedience, because I cannot imagine how in the world He would do it.  Yes Lord, I hear You clearly – but how in the world are You going to do that? How?  I cannot see it.

I am convicted that I must obey what I hear clearly, and let God sort out the how… After all, He is the Lord of the Universe and the owner of the cattle on a thousand hills.
