Day 63: Be blessed
We all know what it’s like to be thirsty.
After some exercise or bathing in the sun thirst strikes and water is needed.
Our bodies according to some estimates are 80% fluid – and we need this, because if we stop drinking suddenly coherent thoughts vanish, skin grows clammy, and vital organs wrinkle. Deprive your body of water and it’ll soon tell you.
Equally, dehydrated hearts send messages around the body too. So many people are experiencing worry, guilt and fear, hopelessness, loneliness and insecurity. The reason being is that thirst is consuming them.
Treat your heart the way you treat your thirst. Take a drink. Where do you find water for the soul? Jesus gave the answer in John 7:37-38
‘if anyone is thirsty let him come and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.’
Even when like David all around you is a desert, you can come to God right now and drink from Him. Let God penetrate the very core of your life. Let Him come deep inside, into the inner workings of your life. Don’t long for church, meetings, activities, doings, but Him alone.
Thirst after Him, drink from Him and be blessed.
