Have you been so thirsty that you are just dying for a nice refreshing drink of water? God will put in our heart a great desire for His word, if we ask Him. It could be that the nice refreshing drink of water is a thirst for a close walk with Jesus. I have been there, wandering around, wondering what was missing in my life, and not being satisfied with anything until I heard a still small voice in my mind telling me, 'you need Me, talk to Me and I will talk to you through My word.' Nothing in this world satisfies like the word of God. Let's check it out and see if I'm right.
Psalm 36:8 "They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of Thy house, and Thou shalt make them drink of the river of Thy pleasures."
Isaiah 55:1 "Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money, come ye, buy, and eat: yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price."
Matthew 5:6 "Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness for they shall be filled."
John 4:14 "but whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life."
John 7:37 "In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto Me, and drink."
Revelation 7:16 "They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat."
Revelation 22:17 "And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is thirsty come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely."
God loves us and wants us to come to Him and be satisfied. There is no other place to go to receive the kind of blessings He has to offer. You can search the world over and you will not find the peace and wholeness that you are thirsting for until you come to Him in complete surrender and then He provides the peace that passes all understanding. Do I understand how this takes place? No. Do I understand that it does take place? Yes. Am I perfect? By no means, I don't claim to be but I do know by experience that He answers my prayers and also keeps His promises. How about studying some of His promises tomorrow and I will share how He has dealt with me in such a loving way, I have no doubt that He is quenching my dying thirst for the water of life.
