“As the deer pants for streams of water,
so my soul pants for you, my God.
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
When can I go and meet with God?” Psalms 42:1-2
Before I got together with my Scripture Dig sisters in Pigeon Forge this past week, a friend of mine had mentioned that she recently prayed for a group of ladies that they would be “hungry” to hear from God.
I love that!
In fact, I began praying along those same lines for those we were going to minister to. God did a work in that place that only He could do as He sewed the pieces of our individual talks together. Many were hungry. Many were thirsty. We were both.
As we look at our lives and the seasons we are in, we stand in need to hear from the Living God – to see Him do a work in our lives – in our hearts – in our midst. Yet we seldom are really hungry for God. Often times we try to quench our thirst for Him with service and busyness.
But it is God alone who can satisfy the hunger and the thirst of our hearts.
So, today, sweet friend, I want to encourage you to wrap yourself up in the arms of your Heavenly Father! Bask in the greatness of who He is.
After exclaiming that his own heart panted for God like a thirsty dear pants for water, the psalmist asked, “When can I go and meet with God?”
Right now, sweet friend! Right now!
So turn off your computer, your telephone, your ipod and your world and spend some time at the Savior’s feet! You won’t ever regret one second in His presence!
He is amazing!
