I love the picture spiritually of thirsting. I don’t know why, but it is something I can totally relate to. I go through seasons where I am content with being complacent. But then other seasons, like the one I’m entering into righ tnow in my life, I can feel myself thirsting for God. A true yearning to know Him intimately, to need Him, to run to Him. I think the heavier the complacent patch we go through, the further we travel from Him, the more apparent the thirst is.
Unfortunately, one thing I have to work on is when I thirst for God, I scan my bookshelves looking for just the right book to inspire me. A book written by a great author to teach and convict me. Why don’t I just pick up my BIble instead and read from THE Author? In thr thirst, the Word of God is the quenching water. It nourishes, soothes, and saturates our soul.
