Y’Shua will literally interrupt your iniquity to expose who He is to you. You don’t believe me; just ask the Samaritan Woman He spoke to at the well in John 4.
Today I am coming to encourage all of you who are standing for your love ones who are still out in the world of sin. This morning in prayer, God began to deal with me regarding the woman at the well. The Holy Spirit pointed out that she was not seeking an encounter with God when the Messiah showed up and spoke into her life.
Think about the setting, here it is the middle of the day and she has picked this very time to go to the well so as to NOT encounter anyone else as she draws her water. The respectable women of the area would arise early in the morning to draw water while it is still cool and they can visit with their friends as they together make their way through the streets to the well.
Ah but this woman was not considered to be respectable and to avoid all the whispers and stares and downright mean treatment of the others, she chose to go when she would be alone. Don’t let anyone fool you, they may say they don’t care what others may think about what they are doing, the lifestyle they have chosen or even their blatant disrespect for the things of God, but they care. They have just walked so long under condemnation that their defense mechanism has kicked in and they have developed this hardness that says “I don’t care”. Take it from me, I know this first hand!
So here she is minding her own business when this Judean man who shouldn’t be talking to her anyway is making conversation. 9 The Samaritan woman therefore saith unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, who am a Samaritan woman? (For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.)
Then to compound things Christ flips the script and tells her by right, she should be asking Him for something to drink. Now again, that defense mechanism kicks in and she gets a bit smart with Him like really who do you think you are. 11 The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: whence then hast thou that living water? 12 Art thou greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his sons, and his cattle?
Don’t get discouraged when the person you are laboring in prayer for does not respond in a favorable way to your sharing the gospel with them. Trust me; all is well; just let the Lord take the opportune time to reveal Himself. When He does, he will tell them all about themselves and will make a lasting impression on them. 19 The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet…..28 So the woman left her waterpot, and went away into the city, and saith to the people, 29 Come, see a man, who told me all things that ever I did: can this be the Christ?
It is not your job to convert your love one, leave that God. He knows exactly what it is going to take to get them to take note of their life and to yield ALL to Him. You just keep praying and believing and He will do the rest.
Your sons and daughters, husband or wife, mother or farther, sister or brother for whom you have been crying out to Elohim for is coming in, don’t be moved by what you hear or see, stand on the promise of God. Acts 16:30-31 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
30 Then, leading them outside, he said, “Men, what must I do to be saved?” 31 They said, “Trust in the Lord Yeshua, and you will be saved — you and your household!”
