Quenching your thirst for Life

Psalm 42:7-8 “Deep calls unto deep at the noise of your waterfalls; all your waves and billows have gone over me.”

Since our bodies contain up to 60% of water, it is extremely important that we replenish it to ensure that it operates according to God's original design, purpose and plan. Can you remember the times that you have been so thirsty that it took more than an eight ounce glass of water to satisfy your thirst? Then you promised yourself that you would never again forget to drink water because the lack of it made you feel all tired and depleted.

The poet in this psalm wrote how they desired and longed deeply for the presence of God during a time of uncertainty and waiting on God. Sometimes in life we can become wrapped up in so many things at once that we can become dry and parched not only in our natural bodies but within our spirits. When this happens our spirit will begin to long for the very thing which help to keep it well watered and that is the presence of the living God. As the deep part of us (our spirit man) calls out unto deep (the presence of God) our once dry and parched spirit is then watered as we receive what is needed for our natural body to be replenished.

Now that we have entered into a new year, as well as a new decade, it is essential that we take the necessary steps to ensure that we keep a continual connection to our divine water source. The water which we receive from God is not only used to quench our thirsty spirits but it is also used to help quench the parched souls of those connected to us who may not know God.

So how do we keep a continual connection?

1. Give all your cares and concerns to God.

2. Ask God to reveal to you His divine purpose for your life.

3. Cut from your life those things or activities which have caused your spirit to become dry and parched.

4. Spend time daily meditating on the word of God.

5. Spend time in fellowship and prayer with God

6. Keep a song of praise and thanksgiving upon your lips.

As the living rivers in you stay connected to its true water source, God the Father, the living waters which flow up from out of your belly will never run dry and you will have overflow to help water others.

If you would like to know Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, please pray the following prayer:

I repent of all of my sins and right now I do confess that Jesus is the Son of God and that He died for the remission of my sins. I believe that Jesus died and was buried and rose again, and is now seated at the right hand of God in Heaven. I receive Him now as Lord of my life and now I commit to serve him for the rest of my days. It’s in Jesus’ name I do pray, Amen.

Welcome to the family of God!
