Jesus Was There First

The story of Jesus meeting the Samaritan woman at the well is fairly much known most of us but I discovered something new when I read John 4:6 again. New revelations are always coming to us from the Bible. We will never exhaust it.

‘Jacob’s well was there and Jesus, tired as He was from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about noon. ‘

He didn’t approach the well and find the woman there, Jesus was there first. Then the Samaritan woman came along to draw her water from the well. Being God He knew that the woman would be coming along.

In our lives we find that Jesus is there first, intentionally. He is waiting for us to show up. That gives me confidence.
