Thirst for the Best

This last summer I enjoyed making iced coffee at home. I love my decaf hazelnut with sweetened hazelnut creamer. Yum! When it finally cools down in this desert location, I’ll likely turn to the warmer edition to appease the taste buds.

The problem is I rarely can get enough of the tasty treat. The flavor is so good, I could drink glass after glass, but no one needs that many calories, or if caffeinated, that much caffeine.

Have you experienced this kind of craving for something you can’t get enough of? Scripture teaches that this is how we are to yearn for the Lord. Psalm 42:1 says, “As a deer longs for flowing streams, so I long for you, O God. I thirst for God, the living God.”

How often throughout our week do we long to just sit and be refreshed? Probably daily. Sometimes, multiple times a day! Face it, this world wears us down and we need replenished.

Jesus offered Himself as our remedy. “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. The one who believes in me, as the Scripture has said, will have streams of living water flow from deep within him” (John 7:37b-38). Jesus was teaching that the Holy Spirit would live inside to satisfy believers.

So, let’s spend time with Him. Share our thoughts, worries, and fears. Be still and listen for His Spirit’s leading or encouraging Word. Experience His peace that is beyond all understanding. Take a few minutes to soak in His refreshing Presence and drink from the well that never runs dry.
