Have you ever been really thirsty? July
Finally, between the seven green and eighth tee box, there it was. In the shade just under a tree, I beheld the most beautiful sight—a water cooler!
Thank you Father! I grabbed one of the tiny paper cups and filled it again and again. I felt my body had been deprived and now required lots of liquid to reverse the effects of the heat.
The psalmist compared physical thirst with spiritual thirst:
“As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for You, O God” Ps. 42:1.
His thirst was that of a desperate longing for God—the one and only living God. Do you long for something this world can’t provide?
This dissatisfaction is a thirst of the soul for God. Run to the One who alone can quench that thirst.
“He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness”
( Ps. 107:9 ).
Only Jesus, the Living Water, can satisfy the thirsty soul. Share a time when you were thirsty and sought God the Father.
See you next Sunday.
