Week Twelve –  The Woman at the Well
Psalm 16 – Every Woman’s Journey
By Carri Pratt 
“You reveal the path of life to me;
in Your presence is abundant joy;
in Your right hand are eternal pleasures.” Psalm 16:11

The Samaritan woman at the well was probably having a typical day doing housework, cooking, coming to the well for some water. What was not typical was the person she would meet. Her life was about to be changed for eternity, and she did not even know it.

That very day, Jesus “reveal(ed) the path of life to (her)” Psalm 16:11a and “in (His) presence (there was) abundant joy!” Psalm 16:11b

When we encounter Jesus we are changed forever.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away, and look, new things have come.” 2 Corinthians 5:17

Jesus can change all people who call on His name,
Accept Him as Savior,  
Believe He is the Son of God,
Confess by repenting and turning from sin,
and embracing Jesus as Lord of your life. 
This is the Good News and it is very Good!

 “Jesus said, “Everyone who drinks from this water will get thirsty again. But whoever drinks from the water that I will give him will never get thirsty again—ever! In fact, the water I will give him will become a well of water springing up within him for eternal life.” John 4:13-14 

Challenge:  Be merry this Christmas Season because God sent His one and only Son to the earth to bring you JOY!

This concludes “Psalm 16 – Every Woman’s Journey.” Thank you so much for taking this journey with us.  Remember that Jesus is always there for you. Simply put your FAITH in Him and take time to be with Him.

God Bless You Ladies!

Your Sister In Christ Jesus,

Isaiah prophesied the encounter we can all experience when he wrote, “with joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.” Isaiah 12:3

Let’s take a look at where we have been:
Psalm 16
Confidence in the Lord
A Davidic Miktam.
Protect me, God, for I take refuge in You. (Rahab)

I said to Yahweh, “You are my Lord;
I have nothing good besides You.” (Eve)

As for the holy people who are in the land,
they are the noble ones.
All my delight is in them. (Mary, mother of Jesus)

The sorrows of those who take another god
for themselves will multiply;
I will not pour out their drink offerings of blood,
and I will not speak their names with my lips. (Miriam)
Lord, You are my portion
and my cup of blessing;
You hold my future. (Esther)

The boundary lines have fallen for me
in pleasant places;
indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. (Ruth)
I will praise the Lord who counsels me—
even at night my conscience instructs me. (Proverbs 31 Woman)

I keep the Lord in mind always.
Because He is at my right hand,
I will not be shaken. (Deborah)
Therefore my heart is glad
and my spirit rejoices;
my body also rests securely. (Priscilla)

10 For You will not abandon me to Sheol;
You will not allow Your Faithful One to see decay. (Mary Magdelene)

11 You reveal the path of life to me;
in Your presence is abundant joy;
in Your right hand are eternal pleasures. (Woman at the Well)
