TSB Devotional: When Reality Beckons

“15. The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw. 16. Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband…”
(John 4: 15-16)

That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.

In our Focal Scripture, Jesus had already promised that He could give living water that was superior to the physical water at the well. The reality also was that He had nothing physical with which to draw water. The woman of Samaria challenged Jesus to do what He said He would do.

When she made her demand, Jesus asked her to go and call her husband. Jesus had nothing physical with which to draw water, and He entered into divine revelation to ask a question that silenced the Samaritan woman. Jesus faced a reality check, there was a challenge for Him to do what He said He could do, and He delved into divine revelation.

There are times when our confessions and realities are miles apart. Sometimes, after believing God for the impossible, the enemy reminds us of impossibilities that can’t be wished away. Sometimes, our faith seems like a fantasy that may never become a reality.

Friend, when reality beckons, switch into the realm of divine revelation. When circumstances make it seem like your faith and belief will fetch you nothing, and when your faith is miles apart from your reality, ask God to open your spiritual eyes to see what others haven’t seen. Ask God for a divine revelation that will shut up the naysayers.

Jesus dismantled a reality that was against Him through a divine revelation. Ask God for a divine revelation that will silence every reality that is against you.

Isaiah 50 vs. 7 says: “For the Lord GOD will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed.”

Pray With Me: Lord, when I’m faced with uncomfortable realities, grant me divine revelations that will bail me out, in Jesus’ name!
