When you are thirsty, I mean, really thirsty, nothing will satisfy but something to drink. When you wake up and parched, you must have something to drink.
When you are exercising and finish, your body demands something to drink.
After certain foods, your mouth is dry, and you must have something to drink.
It’s almost like our body says to us – you will get me something to drink! I am thirsty! I must have something to drink!
Listen to the words of Psalm 42 this morning:
As the deer longs for streams of water,
so I long for you, O God.
I thirst for God, the living God.
When can I go and stand before him?
The Psalmist says that he thirst for God. I think that’s a very powerful image. He is craving God. He must have God. His life and soul demand God.
And nothing will satisfy but God. Nothing will sooth and give life but God. In our lives, we have cravings. In our lives, we have needs. In our lives, there are things that we want, things that we think that we want or need.
Today, in this passage, we see our need. We see what we desperately need. We see what it comes down to. We see what we are actually craving and actually needing.
God. We are thirsty today. We are thirsty for Him.
And today, and each day, only He will satisfy. Today, are you thirsty for Him? Are you thirsty for life?
Today, may you walk deeper with Him than ever. And in Him may you find your thirst satisfied.
