O God, you are my God; I earnestly search for you. My soul thirsts for you; my whole body longs for you in this parched and weary land where there is no water.I have seen you in your sanctuary and gazed upon your power and glory. Your unfailing love is better than life itself; how I praise you! Psalm 63:1-3
Soul thirst. A parched and dry heart. Weariness that comes from the onslaught of the world's demands. The only answer to that kind of thirst is God. Time in His Word and on your knees. Once we catch a glimpse of how absolutely wonderful God is, we want more. He gives us unfailing love, protection, shelter, and He never lets us go.
Because you are my helper, I sing for joy in the shadow of your wings. I cling to you; your strong right hand holds me securely. Psalm 63:7-8. NLTThirsty? Soak up the life sustaining rain of God's presence. The weariness, anxiety, sorrow, and anything else that has dried up your soul will be replaced with His joy. It's not a one time event, or just when you're in trouble. It's everyday living with Jesus.
Jesus replied, "If you only knew the gift God has for you and who you are speaking to, you would ask me, and I would give you living water."
"But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life." John 4:10, 14 NLT
