“My soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;” — Psalm 63:1b

God has the answer for a thirsty soul!

“He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.) — Jesus (John 7:38-39)

Jesus has now been glorified and the Holy Spirit is available for the asking.

Two Additional Thoughts:

  1. Why settle for a canteen when whole river is offered?
  2. Wanting is not the same as asking

Thirsty Soul

“As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.” – Psalm 42:1-2a

There are things, once awakened, that cause a yearning for satisfaction that the unawakened can’t understand.

Experiencing God is like that. It causes a thirst, a good thirst, that God satisfies and that makes all other thirsts pale in comparison. It’s like when a child learns to ride a bike, the old tricycle is retired and never desired again!
