Are You Thirsty Today?

O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is. (Psalm 63:1)
We thirst for God much more than we realize.
Without knowing it, we thirst for more awareness of His rich presence in our lives.
We can strive to satisfy this soul thirst with a sense of control by planning our futures, making decisions too early, and with worldly pleasures. If we find our minds idle, there are plenty of distractions to fill it.
This soul thirst can only be satisfied by the living water of the one true living God.
When we are caught up in the whirlwind of the world’s fast paced lifestyle, we will soon find ourselves beyond parched.
This is when we must pause and remember to be present.
The Lord longs for you to be present in His presence.
This is where His presence awaits you continually.
When you choose to put aside tasks awaiting to be done and turn your attention towards Him, He rejoices!
Are you thirsty today?
If you’ve felt burnt out and parched in your spirit, the Lord wants to quench that thirst and refresh you with His abundant source of strength, peace and joy. Without Him, we are bound to faint in the dry and desolate land that is the world.
Allow Him to lead you beside still waters, and restore your innermost being with His love!
I felt this was a powerful devotion. I pray as you read it you are encouraged to allow Him to lead you and restore you.
Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord!
