God, You are my God; I eagerly seek You.
I thirst for You;
my body faints for You
in a land that is dry, desolate, and without water.
You satisfy me as with rich food;
my mouth will praise You with joyful lips.
Psalm 63: 1, 5 HCSB
You’ve been on the road all day. You ran out of water hours ago, and you barely grabbed a bite of breakfast before heading out this morning. As you pull off the highway your mouth waters as you salivate on thoughts of a big, juicy steak, creamy potatoes, a fresh salad and a giant glass of iced tea. Just think about that dessert menu! Five-layer chocolate cake, Bourbon pecan pie, creme brule’…
Do you seek God in this way? During the dry, parched seasons do you try to fill the emptiness with controlling your food, whether healthy or not, buying clothes, or decorating and re-decorating your home? Perhaps you escape to gaming, books, or social media.
Let God be that escape. Run to Him first thing in the morning to see what He has for you today. Let Him whisper to your heart, breathe life, quench your thirst and fill your hunger with his satisfying Word. During the stress-filled day when you are tempted to seek refuge in pleasures offering only, fleeting comfort take a few moments, instead, to meditate on His message and praise Him for who He is and the amazing things He has done. He invites you to dine with Him today at His banquet table. Will you accept His invitation?
