Streams of Water

"As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God."  Psalm 42:1

Have you ever seen a starving wild deer? - Maybe in the dead of winter?  They become very unpredictable and make the most unusual noises - huffing, snorting, wheezing and gasping.  I'm not sure if this is the "panting" that this verse talks about but it certainly has stuck in my mind.  Extreme thirst.  This isn't very pleasant to think about but it is a good comparison and it shows us what a thirsty soul is - It's that extreme yearning to be with God, that necessity that we feel deep down in our soul.

Water is a necessity - not just a desire but a need.  Experts say that humans can go 4 to 6 weeks without food - but water is a whole different story.  You'd be lucky to live 1 week without water - hydration is the key to life.  God is our living water - He is the key to our soul.

Let's satisfy our spiritual thirst by spending time with God through prayer, reading the Bible and fellowship.
