I don’t know about where you live but here in North Alabama, it’s hot. I mean h.o.t. HOT. I cannot get enough to drink. I stay thirsty. Can anyone relate?
The truth is though, we should stay thirsty spiritually too. Consider these verses from the Psalms:
O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water. Psalm 63:1
I stretch out my hands to you; my soul thirsts for you like a parched land. Psalm 143:6
Often I believe we miss the depths God has for us in knowing Him and growing in Him because we fail to ask Him to make us thirsty.
We’ll end this week with one final truth about thirsting for God:
Keep thirsting! The more we long for Him, the more He reveals Himself to us.
Today, can I just simply offer you a challenge … When you feel thirsty physically, will you pray for a spiritual thirst as well?
