Lately I have had a deeper thirsts for God. I don't know how to really describe it but I want more. Not just a sip to wash down whatever food I am eating but I thirst for Him to the point I want a stream of water that over flows my mouth to where I can't even contain it. I want so much of God that it flows out my lips and down my chin and others can't help but notice. I want more of Him! In this dry and thirsty land I need more of Him! As David wrote this Psalm I can hear his desperation, I can feel his passion and sense His greatest desire. "Lord hear my prayers, uphold me with your righteous right hand, POUR OUT YOUR Spirit upon me. I praise you today!"
O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary,
beholding your power and glory.
Because your steadfast love is better than life,
my lips will praise you.
So I will bless you as long as I live;
in your name I will lift up my hands.
My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food,
and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips, when I remember you upon my bed,
and meditate on you in the watches of the night;
for you have been my help,
and in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy.
My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me.
