Thirst For God

Today's Scripture

“As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God” - (Psalm 42:1).

Thoughts for Today

Quenching our thirst comes quite easily for most of us. Our minds tell us we need water, so we find the nearest source of water and drink. But do we apply this same principle to our spiritual lives?

Everything in life can become routine, even our relationship with God. At times, we may not feel like we are teeming with life.

We feel the thirst for God, but what are we doing about it? Sometimes, we look to sources other than God Himself; and while they may divert our attention, our thirst for Him remains.

Our bodies are designed to let us know when we need to replenish our internal water supply. Our mouths become dry and our brain quickly alerts us to the problem. We also have signals that tell us we need spiritual water—when life feels empty, when we are filled with fear and anxiety, and when we do not love God, our neighbors or ourselves.

But what is our response? Those who remain thirsty do so because they forget where the well is. They forget there is an unending source of refreshment and revitalization found in relationship with God.

The longer we remain numb to the problem, the larger the problem grows. We may know we are thirsty for God, but if we make no effort to pursue the fountain of life found in an intimate relationship with the Savior, we are robbing ourselves of one of the most refreshing moments in life.

No matter how long we have been away from God’s presence, He welcomes us back.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, help me to be sensitive to Your Holy Spirit, and to recognize You are the only Source that quenches my thirst. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Thursday and God Bless you.
