God's Overflow
"For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks" – Luke 6:45

Time to Walk Away?

1 Now Jesus learned that the Pharisees had heard that he was gaining and baptizing more disciples than John—2 although in fact it was not Jesus who baptized, but his disciples.3 So he left Judea and went back once more to Galilee (into the story of the Samaritan woman at the well) – John 4:1-3

Jesus knew when it was time to move on. The situation Jesus found Himself in with the Pharisees, as shown in v 1-2, wasn’t going to end well. He wasn’t going to be able to convince the Pharisees of something they had already decided to believe against. He decided to move on from the situation… and what happened next? He met the Samaritan woman at the well.

We have to know when to walk away in a situation that is not beneficial in our lives. If it’s going to cause more issues and not end well, it’s best to remove yourself from the issue. If you’re talking to a wall or someone with a hardened heart, there are times when you will have to walk away.

Jesus walked away and was brought into another major encounter that changed the lives of many. When you walk away from your situation, you just may be put into a position to do the same. What do you need to walk away from?
