Most of us are unaware we are distracted at the well. We feel because we arrived at the location of the well’ we are connected with God. But in reality, we are farther than we think. We are disconnected and disengaged. Our bellies are full but our souls are empty. We spend a large amount of time planning; and loose real-time with God. And we are disappointed when we spend time with God because it doesn’t go according to our plans. Sometimes we leave God out of things. I’m guilty of this very thing and even why God lead me to write this. We fall in love with the idea of Relationship with God vs having an intimate one with him. We turn on Youtube playing sermon after sermon and end up entertained. Something which once taught; becomes too familiar and we don’t gain what was once considered jewels of wisdom. Worship music satisfies the craving of sound in an empty space. We pray meatless prayers just to cross off morning affairs. God is crying out waiting to greet us. He wants his children back focused on him. He wants us to get back our KEYS to the kingdom. He wants our heads more in the bible than in ideas. He wants us to sings songs made from our hearts to him ( Psalm 92:1). There something so special about finding the words to express our love to him. God doesn’t want the one touch of a button kind of love. He wants the seek me with your whole heart kind of pursue. He wants us to come with a heart of expectation. Are you distracted at the Well friend? Its time to get back focused?
If you haven’t accepted Jesus in your heart and you would like to, here’s a prayer you can pray and get connected to a local church.
Lord Jesus, for too long I’ve kept you out of my life. I know that I am a sinner and that I cannot save myself. No longer will I close the door when I hear you knocking. By faith, I gratefully receive your gift of salvation. I am ready to trust you as my Lord and Savior. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for coming to earth. I believe you are the Son of God who died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead on the third day. Thank you for bearing my sins and giving me the gift of eternal life. I believe your words are true. Come into my heart, Lord Jesus, and be my Savior. Amen. This prayer is from Dr.Ray Pritchard found
