Day 8 - Talking too Much to See the Obvious | February Devotional in the Gospel of John

John 4:25 The woman said to Him, “I know that Messiah is coming” (who is called Christ). “When He comes, He will tell us all things.” 26 Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am He.

The Samaritan woman had a lengthy encounter with Jesus Christ. She experienced His wisdom, knowledge, compassion, and prophetic insights (“You’ve had five husbands and the man you are with now is not your husband"). She heard Jesus teach about the living water which was Himself.

After all of that, she did not recognize who He was, “I know Messiah is coming...“ Jesus had to tell her, “I am He,” because in all of her talking and sharing opinions, she was unable to see the obvious.

That would be like me talking to a person in a white coat with a stethoscope around his neck, sharing precise knowledge about medicine and physiology, hearing me say, “If only we had a doctor around here!”

Reflection question: In what ways have you failed to see God‘s hand within the same circumstances that concern you?
