A Soul that Thirsteth for God

Psalm 63:1

“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.”

I/span>n this world, believers will feel like they are in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is. The temptations and trials of this world make us very weary and troubled. Hardships we have to endure daily may leave us grievously depressed and desperate for some relief and rest.

But we can turn to our God. Each of us must say like the psalmist, “O God, Thou art my God.” He is our God in this dry and thirsty land. The wisest thing to do when we are weary and troubled is to draw near to God. Seek the Lord at once.

Let us say to God, “Early will I seek Thee.” Make no delay. Make a dash for the divine comfort and strength available before God’s throne of grace. Do not be afraid to cry out to God. Our heavenly Father loves to hear His children cry to Him all the day long. Jesus, our Saviour and Lord, will attend to you. He will send His Comforter, the Holy Spirit, to aid you.

Never be satisfied with the earthly things. They cannot quench the thirst of our souls. Don’t live away from God in this dry and thirsty land. Go to the Lord always in prayer, and depend on Him every moment of your life.
