‘You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.’ Psalm 63, verse 1
Powerful words from the pen of the Psalmist. What is conjoured up in your mind as you read? I think that words cannot even begin to express what is in the heart of the writer of the Psalm; but he tries to express what is deep in his soul. How does it make you feel as you read his cry of longing?
Nothing is held back. Faith and trust in a seemingly impossible situation is what drives his heart and soul to have such assurance, which almost seems a little over the top.
The parched land is no barrier, not even if it feels a little like that in our own hearts. Water in the desert…refreshment for the soul, poured out, running over, even in the seemingly most difficult moments.
Steal a moment or moments today to read the words of the Psalmist and be prepared for the answer you might not expect!
