Praying for you, knowing that our God is faithful and His Word true.
So, the question this week is are we thirsty? Thirsty for His presence. Thirsty for His Word. Thirsty for a move of God in the Body of Christ and across our land. Are we thirsty for Him. Are we satisfied or are we desperate? The measure of our thirst will determine the measure of our seeking after God. The measure of our seeking after Him will be the measure of His presence in our lives. Yesterday we were meditating on Psalm 42! and Psalm 63! and Psalm 84! and as we meditate on these Psalms I believe we will become more thirsty for His true presence. Isaiah 43:3 gives insight on the conditions necessary for the Lord to saturate us. "For I will pour water on him who is thirsty, and floods on the dry ground." He does not necessarily saturate those who are content.
Remember what Jesus said in Matthew 5:6? "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled. Our thirst precedes our being filled by Him. I love His promise in Isaiah 41:17-18 concerning the poor and needy who are thirsty. Apart from Him we are indeed poor and needy. In Him is all. But here is the promise for the thirsty! This is so exciting! In verse 17, it says "I the God of Israel will not forsake them. I will open rivers in desolate heights, and fountains in the midst of the vallleys; I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water." God responds to the cry of thirsty people and brings water to the desolate places, floods to the parched places. Wherever you have any lack, any desolation, any dry areas of your life, begin to thirst after God like never before and He will cause floods, and rivers, and springs! And if you have no thirst, ask Him and He will begin to create a thirst in you. He is wanting to make desolate places fruitful. He is the living water.
