True Satisfaction in Spiritual Hunger (Morning)
Isaiah 58:11 The LORD will guide you continually, And satisfy your soul in drought, And strengthen your bones; You shall be like a watered garden, And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.
Thirst is the natural way our body of saying that we need liquid especially water. If this biological response is nullified, we will die a mere moment after were being born, unable to feel thirst. Our daily intake of water is continuously updated. Back in the 90s, scientists said that humans need at least two liters of water. Right now it’s been proven to be wrong because of daily activities and body mass. Drinking enough water also benefits your skin, cardiovascular health, and emotional stability. Drinking water is of such paramount importance, we must drink water even if we do not thirst.
Right now, how many of us cannot feel our spiritual life is thirsty. How should I know? You ask. Listening to sermons and go to Sunday service just as formalities. Have no passion left. When you have troubles, you go to your friends, watching movies, shopping, eating, or else. Those may provide some ease of mind, but it’s just temporarily ineffective solutions. After that, you’ll face your troubles once again, even worse than before. It’s important to understand the root of your troubles and act accordingly.
There’s only one kind of thirst that could be eternally quenched and satisfied. Our thirst for God is far more beneficial and important. When we face spiritual drought, we want Him to send a torrential downpour to our lives. As a barren deserted land, our hearts are ready to greet Him. We want more and more. This means you’ll provide time to come into His presence and feel His grace surrounds you.
There’s only ONE KIND OF THIRST that could be eternally quenched, that is THE THIRST FOR GOD.
1. When did the last time you feel the unquenchable thirst for God? What made you so?
2. In your opinion, why our thirst for Him could be eternally quenched?
3. After reading today’s rhema, what are your commitments to improve this “thirst”?
“Good Father, truly we are grateful because of You. Only within Your proximity only we can feel calm and peaceful. Satisfy our thirst for You and Your grace. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.”
