Psa 42v2 – Desperately Thirsty

The hike up the mountain was longer than we expected, and as the day wore on and the sun beat down, our water supplies were quickly depleted. Soon finding water was all we could think about. The baking sun was relentless and our mouths were parched. I could think of nothing else – not the beauty of our surroundings, not the majestic mountains, only, “Where can we find water?” Finally, we came upon a moss-covered cliff with water trickling down its cool surface. With joy, we pressed our faces against the cliff, letting the cool water drip into our thirsty mouths. Licking water off a mossy cliff wouldn’t be my normal choice, but this is the sweetest, most delicious water when you are desperately thirsty. Think of a time when you were desperately thirsty, and all you wanted was the delicious taste of refreshing water. Now take that memory and replace it with a desperate thirst for God. “My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?” (Psalms 42:2). This should be our desire for God. A desire so needful, so desperate, we can think of nothing else but, “When can I go and meet you, God?” 🌱 Open Bible –
