Thirsty Worship

August 4, 2011

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?

    I think the trials of life often magnify my thirst and make me want more.

    Thanks for the challenge. I’ve been thirsty all week. 🙂
    I live here in the desert of Arizona, so being thirsty physically is a norm for me.
    One of my favorite verses is Isaiah 58:11 – The LORD will guide you always. He will supply your needs in a sun scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.

    Loved your posts this week Teri Lynne!
