“As the hart pants and longs for the water brooks, so I pant and long for You, O God. My inner self thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and behold the face of God?” Psalm 42: 1-2 (AMP)
There are many times in life when we find ourselves in a place where it’s dry and barren. We long and crave for the water brooks of God – just to have our dry, parched lips moistened with the living water. As if in a desert longing to find some cool, refreshing water, we long to quench our thirst by drinking deeply from it.
It’s in these times that God comes and refreshes us, and by this refreshing there comes a growth. But often we need to be in this place of desperation before we can truly hunger and thirst after God – and cry out to Him with all our hearts.
We don’t have the same desperation when we’re happily going through life, so God allows these desert time experiences that causes us to pant, crave and long for the water brooks of God. If you need refreshing today, come to Him and drink deeply and you will be satisfied.
In the desert times of life
Receive the water that satisfies
