Have you ever heard those commercials about water? They begin to show water that is being poured out and they amplify the sound and try to get you to be thirsty. Then they begin to talk about how much of the human body is water, the percentage is never the same, but it is always a large percentage. The simple fact is, water is necessary for life. If you have ever exerted a lot of energy on a hot day Im sure you became acutely aware of that fact. Just like you thirsted for a drink on that hot day, we as Christians are supposed to thirst after God.

Psalm 63:1 says, 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. Think about a desert, and how much you would want water if you were stranded out there for a while. Have you ever desired God like you would have craved that life giving water? Just like our physical beings need water to survive, our spirit being needs Christ in order to live unto righteousness.

I would like to encourage you, seek after God. Ask Him to give you a sincere desire to know Him. God promises to be found by those who seek Him. Those who truly want a close relationship with Him, He will come close to. It is a good thing to obtain salvation from the Lord, but it is far better to know Him and to seek after Him. Let us seek God. Let us recognize Him as the true giver of life and the sustainer of our souls.

I stretch forth my hands unto thee: my soul thirsteth after thee, as a thirsty land. Selah. – Psalm 143:6
