John 4:33 So the disciples began to say to one another, "Nobody has brought Him anything to eat, has he?"
The Lord Jesus, being wearied from His journey, was sitting by Jacob’s well. His disciples had gone to the city to buy food, indicating that the Lord must indeed be hungry. There He meets a Samaritan woman. It was the will of God that He should speak to her and save her. He does what God has willed Him to do. His disciples subsequently return with the food and request Him to eat. But He says to them, “I have food to eat which you do not know about.” They then think that someone else must have brought Him food. Consequently, He plainly tells them, “The food which I have is to do the will of Him who sent me, and to accomplish His work.”

Eph 3:16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man.

His work should make us full instead of empty and hungry. Each time we labor we should feel full. If we find that we are hungry, something must be wrong. It is an indication that we should examine what we are doing. If we walk according to God’s will and not our own will, we should be strengthened. There are many external needs that are very compelling and outside persuasion is often very strong. We can find ourselves very busy doing many good things but there is only one thing that will truly satisfy us and build us up in the inner man. Let His Spirit bear witness with ours that we have truly touched His life in all that we undertake. We must do God’s will in order to be satisfied.

John 4:34 Jesus said to them, "My food is to do the will of Him who sent me, and to finish His work.
