Day 108 Readings – Psalms 17, 35, 54, and 63
You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water. Psalm 63:1 NIV
We often say things like “I am thirsty” or “I’m starving” but unless you have gone without food or water or witnessed those that have – my guess is that we really have no understanding of thirst or hunger.
This is a Psalm of David’s when he was in the Desert of Judah.
I suppose you gain an new understanding of thirst when you spend time in a desert.
David’s new understanding of thirst and his desire for water helped him gain perspective on his desire to seek after God.
There is a part of us that longs (thirsts/hungers) to know God.
Have you sought after God? or are you still waiting for Him to come to you?
Don’t go thirsty …
