SCRIPTURE READING | JOHN 4: 3-28
“There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.” (John 4: 7)
In our Focal Scripture, Jesus demanded water from the woman of Samaria. Jesus had nothing with which to draw water; the woman of Samaria had something with which to draw water. She was in a position where she could provide what Jesus needed. She had a physical resource, and Jesus demanded that she use it to fulfill a divine purpose.
Friend, God says, use your resources to serve a divine purpose. Use your position in life to advance the course of God’s kingdom. Use your career to make Jesus proud. Use your business to fulfill a divine purpose that will make Jesus glad. Use your skills to do something for the Lord. Use what you have in your hands to fulfill what is in the heart of the Lord.
Jesus had options if He wanted water; He only gave the woman of Samaria a chance to give water to God. When God wants you to do something for Him, it’s not because He doesn’t have options; it’s because He wants to use your effort and sacrifice to bless you. If your finances are called into action in the house of God, it’s a platform for your increase.
If the woman of Samaria refused to grant Jesus’ request, Jesus had nothing to lose, but it was the woman of Samaria who would lose a chance for a divine encounter. If you fail to use your physical platform to serve a divine purpose, take note, God has nothing to lose, but you would eventually be the biggest loser.
Use what you have to serve God; don’t walk away when God makes a demand on what you have; use you physical platform to fulfill a divine purpose.
Proverbs 11 vs. 25 says: “The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.”
PRAY WITH ME
Lord, my physical platform must serve a divine purpose, in Jesus’ name!
