There is a hunger and a thirst for God which not too many people experience. It’s a place where we come to the end of ourselves. It’s a place where we are looking for satisfaction and we can’t seem to find it in our marriage, our resources, neither our riches. In fact, it really doesn’t matter how much money you have because after you get enough stuff in your life that’s all you have is stuff, and there still remains a void in the depths of your heart. King David got that way. Here is a man that had it all, yet he found all that he had not to be nearly enough to fill the void in his life. Thus, he said “O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is (Psalm 63:1).” Thus, saints of God if we are really going to do something for God; if we are really going to see our homes, communities, workplace and even our houses of worship change for real we are going to have to get thirsty for the presence of God in our lives; because sometimes it’s the thirst and hunger that we have for him that will determine whether we are going to press on for him or quit right in the middle of the battle. Often it’s the thirst that gives us the will and the zeal to keep going even when everything in us is telling us to quit. It’s the thirst for him that keeps us going even when everyone else around us, (even those who we thought were pillars of the gospel) are falling by the way side. Therefore, we must have a King David experience if we plan to stay on the battle field of our Lord and not only survive but thrive in the game of Christian living.
God Bless You
