I have never been a big drinker. But, I’m not talking about that type of drinking today. I am basically chronically dehydrated because I just don’t drink throughout the day. Every once in a while, I get the overwhelming desire to drink all the water I can get my hands on. My body is craving it.
In the same way I find myself not drinking enough water on a daily basis, I find that I do not meditate with the Lord enough daily. I think I can get by on a few sips here and there, when in reality I’m still dehydrated. Then all of a sudden, I get the overwhelming urge to be with God in prayer, in His word or worship. My spirit craves Him. I have no choice but to fulfill this need of Him and I always walk away revived.
His word is literally water for the soul. It’s refreshing, cleansing and filling. He quenches every thirst we have and all we have to do is let Him.
“Jesus answered and said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will thirst again; but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.” John 4:13-14
