I liked number 9 the best. While it is hard to be patient and wait on the Lord, it is comforting to know that He gave us the desires of our hearts. Hey Christina, number 9 is definitely a personal one. Only the Lord can fulfill our expectations as we patiently wait on Him. Late answers from God..
Helps to earn many things within an individual… Beautiful experiencing time to know his ways n will….. Hey Shalini, delays are never denials from God. We experience strong faith by waiting upon the Lord ,right?

Oh Diana I needed these! This week has been hard with Satan trying to pull be backward.
5 Ways to Speak Life Into Someone
I have submersed myself in verses, prayer, and songs all week to combat the negative thoughts and doubt. This has been a great addition. I shared on my facebook page! Melissa, I can totally understand how stressful life can be especially with our enemy adding more fuel. Thank you for sharing these amazing truths; I needed these this morning as the enemy is working over time right now, but my God is bigger, and through Christ I can over come this, God bless you. I saw your link this morning at the Modest Monday Link Up.
Jennifer , God is much bigger and stronger than the storms the enemy will try to bring into your life. Thank you for visiting me. I loved this post, Diana!
Voice is my word for the year, and I have thought a lot about speaking life to others but not really considered speaking it to my own soul like this. I love all the verses you highlight but I think numbers 3 and 9 are particularly relevant for me right now.
Thanks for sharing this! Praise God for that. Julie, you are so right about speaking these truths into your own lives every day. How often we forget that God wants to revive us through His Word. I believe one of the times the Lord is closest to us is when we use our pain to minister to others. Prayers that God will open doors to new relationships. Thank you so much for your kind words.
It definitely spoke encouragement to my soul. I am so glad to have you visit me today and also comment. Adrienne , I praise the Lord that He lifted you up with these verses today. I can do all things through Christ Jesus that gives me strength is my all time favorite verse.
Needed to hear that this morning as i sit in standstill traffic due to an accident. I choose to focus on God. Prescott, these traffics in our lives can literally stop us during the rush hours of our day. I can rest and wait is my favorite. Great post, pinned to share with our Living Our Priorities community. Stopping by from By His Grace Bloggers. Thank you so much for allowing God to use you. Thank you for this. Reatta, your comment was so encouraging for me. It is so important to be filled first before we pour out to others. Let us continue to fill our lives with His Promises, and Word so that even the Devil will tremble Blessings and much prayers as you continue to glorify God.
Thank you so much for this list! The devil does have a good time attacking me and I need all the weapons I can to attack his lies. Anne, thank you for visiting me today. What a beautiful list. I have been needing something like this as I battle through anxiety.

Thank you for sharing it! Tiffany, I have prayed for you today as you battle anxiety. It can cripple our life and I am so glad these verses spoke life over your anxieties. April, your comments are a delight to read. So glad every time you visit me. These are so great!
There is such power in speaking the word over our lives! When we are depleted, we often feel out of control and may begin to act out, saying things we later regret. Or, we may start to respond to others out of fear or other negative thought or behavior patterns. When we react out of self, we are not being love to those around us. I desire for people to see the love of God flowing in and through me. I hope that when someone looks at my life, he or she will see Jesus and be greatly affected by His love in me.
But, if my love tank is empty, or even running low, then the ugly motivations of my heart will show themselves. My life will not be characterized by love, but by bitterness, judgment, anger, fear, jealously, greed, lust, pride or selfishness—to name just a few. What flows out of you?

Or, do they see a person who is only living for self? Greg Smalley also reminded us that it is human nature to miss the beauty that is right in front of us. You will be so blessed for doing so. Thanks for listening as I share my heart with you today. Abby Lewis has a degree in Health and Wellness and her massage therapy license. Thanks , I have just been looking for information approximately this subject for a while and yours is the greatest I have came upon till now. Thank you for engaging in the post and sharing your thoughts.
Jesus knows her whole story! Those were all just symptoms, but Jesus is going beneath all that. This woman came to the well that day weighed down by the reality of the deadness inside her. Like all of us, she had made herself god in place of the One who created her. God knows when and how to bring us face to face with the truth of who we are.
It is His kindness that leads us to turn to Him. Jesus is never easy on sin. He knew what it was going to cost Him. But His words do not condemn this woman. Rather He offers her life, forgiveness and freedom. Maybe she just wants to find out more about this man and just exactly what authority he does have.
She throws out to Him a long-debated religious argument the Jews and Samaritans had about where they should go to worship God. God is Spirit and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth. He who is called Christ; when that One comes, He will declare all things to us.
John writes that just at that moment, the disciples return.
To honor the image of God in every person
He revealed Himself to her. And He offered her eternal life, a living forever relationship with God, His Father! And so, in verse Did this really happen to me? Did I just see and speak to Messiah Himself, in person? She came to the well that day a woman dying of thirst. Her water pot was still empty, but her inner being was filled up with rivers of living water that would quench her thirst forever. Jesus spoke life into her; now His words of life will enable her to point others to Him. So what happens to her now? Did all her problems go away? She may have still gone to the well alone every day.
But I like to think that well was a special place to her now. Now, when she went to the well, she could recall in her heart the words Jesus had spoken to her. His strong, gentle voice of authority, so different from the voices of the world around her. Though others may not have valued her for who she was, it was at the well where she met Jesus, who knew everything about her and loved her anyway.
Instead of being a prisoner to the guilt and shame of her past, being at the well would remind her that Jesus Messiah, the Judge of all the earth, had set her free. It was true that abandonment and loneliness had been written with tears on pages of her story, but now she knows Jesus who promised He will never leave her or forsake her. His words of hope would continue to speak life into her soul giving her the strength and comfort she needed day by day.
All of us have a story. And, yes, even when we know Jesus, this world is a difficult place to live. In the way that Samaritan woman went to that well to fill her water pot every day, we can imagine the Bible as our well. Through these written words the Holy Spirit draws up His living water into our soul… words of life that will sustain us day after day. This is our place to go. He knows where and when we need to rest. He knows when we wander off, where to find us and just how to bring us home. All because we belong to HIM. We have times of joy and celebration at the well.
I would wander far away, I would lodge in the wilderness. I would hasten to my place of refuge from the stormy wind and tempest. It reminds me of this great little book written years ago, Hinds Feet on High Places. When we open our ears, His words of life bring peace. They comfort us and renew our hope, even in the midst of trouble. Is there a special page somewhere when Jesus spoke life into your spirit?
Are there chapters you love to go back and read again because of the joy written there? Some may be stained with your tears. But you might notice that some of those very same pages have a sweet fragrance as you read over them. Most of our stories include some blank pages too. When life and busyness kept us distracted and away from the well. And we learn again how pleasant it is to spend time at the well. Maybe you are hearing Jesus speak life into your heart right now, for the very first time.
Wherever you are, Jesus wants to speak words of life and truth to meet whatever we need in every moment. I hope it will be that your story will have page after page that read something like this: God , Jesus , life , water , words. You are commenting using your WordPress.

Of course, her focus is still on the water. But Jesus has got her thinking. What did He say? If you knew the gift of God…?

Who is this man? Listen to what my son wrote to me in an e-mail about that morning: This is what Jesus was offering to the woman at the well.
