Obey Your Thirst

Posted on Oct 6, 2015 by Brian Seewald


"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled." Matthew 5:6

Have you ever been so thirsty that anything would "satisfy"? Many of us, in the physical, walk around dehydrated every day and we don't even know it. We often fill the craving with what our body really doesn't need. Many of us are restistant to the one thing our body needs and craves: water. The same is true in our spiritual journey. Our soul is constantly thirsty. We don't even realize what we are craving for. We replace it with the things of this world, when what our soul really needs can only be found in the well of God!  Isaiah 58:11 reveals, "The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail." We thirst for the truth. We hunger for the presence of the Lord. We crave these things because we are made in His image. It is time we obey our thirst.
