As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. Psalm 42:1
My soul thirsts. Your soul thirsts. But often we misunderstand what it is thirsting for.
We feel the uneasiness in our souls and look to entertainment to ease the discomfort.
We experience the nag of conscience and try to mask it with the security of friendship.
We sense that our money is slipping through our fingers, so we work even harder to ensure that there is more in the bank.
But each of these is not what the soul is thirsting for.
My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God. Psalm 42:2
Our souls are thirsting, but we must recognize that they are thirsting for God. God is the drink that will quench the thirst. Relating with Him is what will satisfy.
We can have that relationship with Him only through the good news of Jesus.
Spend time today thinking about the character of God by talking to Him and reading the Bible.
