Thirsty for Him

“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.

Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading; 1 Samuel 25-26, Psalm 63, and Matthew 9.

How hard am I chasing God?

If God is my God, then I need to be chasing Him with fervor.

I want to know Him better.  I want to know what He’s all about.  I want to make sure that I am doing what He wants, because His Ways are the best ways.

Our relationship must not be casual.  I fear that often it is.  I tune Him in and out.  I move on to other gods, often without realizing it.

I often write about rightly representing God.  I can’t do that unless my relationship to Him in tight.

It is said that “apart from Him I can do nothing.”  For me, apart from Him I can do plenty, none of which is ultimately a good thing.  The whisperer (Satan) encourages independent thinking.  He tells me that I can handle things.  He tells me that my chosen ways are good.  All lies!  And how often do I act on them.

My pursuit of God must be ongoing.  It needs to be at the thirst-and-water level.

“Lord, I love You.  Help me to tighten my connection to You.  May it be ongoing and not occasional.  I need You every second.  Please stir my thirst for You.  Parch me when I am away from You, so that I will realize my need of You.  Direct my path, I beg.”

Are you thirsty for Him?
