Many people spend their entire life either searching for the one personal relationship that will cure the pain in their soul, or in trying to make someone in their life give them the love, attention, affirmation, and approval they long for.
What we fail to understand is this. The deepest need in our life isn’t a need for relationships with people. It is our aching need for a relationship with God, our Creator.
There is a lady in the Bible who learned this lesson from Jesus. John 4 tells the story of the Samaritan woman and her interaction with Jesus Christ at a well. She went to the well to fetch water and met Jesus there. He told her about living water—a spiritual water that would satisfy the deepest longing in her soul.
This lady had spent her adult life looking for love and soul satisfaction in the wrong places. She had been married 5 times and was living with a man who wasn’t her husband. Her relationship history points to lots of failure and pain.
When she met Jesus, she found satisfaction that none of her human relationships could ever give her. She discovered that there was a hole in her soul that only God could fill.
The same is true for you. There’s a hole in your soul that only God can fill. Open your life to the living water only Jesus can give. You’ll find the satisfaction that no person or thing can provide.
