I lift my hands to you in prayer. I thirst for you as parched land thirsts for rain.” Psalm 143:6 (NLT)
You know when you’re really thirsty and you know you can’t get anything to drink for a while? What’s the one thing you think about—water. And lots of it. Just the other day I was in this situation where I was so thirsty but couldn’t get something to drink for another hour. And all I could think about was desperately wanting to literally drink a gallon of water. Honestly, in those situations I feel like I’ll never fully quench my thirst.
Do you ever wonder why sometimes we don’t feel that same way with our relationship with God? After all that’s what I want my relationship with Him to be about. I have to want more of Him, I have to need more of Him, because without Him there is no joy or peace or grace. I want my thirst for God to be so great that I want it to consume my thoughts and actions from the time I wake up in the morning to the time I go to sleep at night.
Praying, worshipping, and reading the word all help with becoming thirsty for God. Praying can be done anywhere and at any time. Worshipping Jesus can be done to music or it can be your own words. And no matter how many times you read the bible there is always something new to learn and discover.
Being thirsty for God has never been more satisfying!
