As a deer longs for a stream of cool water, so I long for you, O God.I thirst for you, the living God. When can I go and worship in your presence?
Water is essential to the survival of most living things. Drinking is inevitable. You either drink or you die and that’s how it works in our lives. Water is life both physically and spiritually. As believers, our lives are connected to the life of God and we need God to physically and spiritually stay alive and prosper. At the time of this scripture, God dwelt in the ark and the priests kept him hidden. But for you the New Testament believer, due to Christ, God is all around you with grace, mercy, revelation and his presence is not hidden. So please drink! No need to be thirsty. There's an abundance of life.
Thank you Lord that I can drink from your everlasting well of life and receive strength and grace in abundance because you have chosen me as a royal priest in the courts of heaven.
