Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 45

45. Sir, you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep (John 4:11).

How like us to expect that God is limited to the same resources that we can see. But Jesus has no need for her bucket or even the well that her daily life depends on. And when He sets out to change her life, He has no need of such natural implements either. We easily forget that we serve the God who created the Universe out of nothing. In our circumstances, we look around for the tools we need, the staff, the weapons, etc. But God is greater than we know and He has no need of starter material. What He does look for is our faith that He can and will be sufficient for our need.
