The Apostle John tells us of Jesus’ encounter with the Samaritan woman.

“Therefore, when the Lord knew that the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John (though Jesus Himself did not baptize, but His disciples), He left Judea and departed again to Galilee. But He needed to go through Samaria.
A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give Me a drink.” For His disciples had gone away into the city to buy food.
Then the woman of Samaria said to Him, “How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?” For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.
Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.” John 4:1-4,7-10

Notice how John said,

“But He needed to go through Samaria.” John 4:4

Jesus could have gone through any other route but is it not so beautiful that Jesus felt it in His heart that He needed to go through Samaria, a land foreign to the Jews, a people estranged from them, take a route that Jews themselves would purposefully avoid at that time, just because there was a woman there who needed to meet Him and receive His grace?

This is exactly what Jesus is doing today. He needs pass your way. It is written,

“He has made all things beautiful in its time.” Ecclesiastes 3:11

And He needs pass your way because He wants to give you the His source of nourishment that will never leave you thirsty again for,

“Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.” John 4:13-14

Today is His time. This is His season for you. Jesus needs pass your way and is doing so right now. Will you stop and let Him minister to you? Will you let Him give you the living waters which will quench your every thirst?
