O God, you are my God,earnestly I seek you;my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you,
in a dry and weary land where there is no water. (Psalm 63:1 NIV84)
The Psalmist at this point is in a dry and weary land where there is no water. I asked my self if that was me,what would be the FIRST thing that I would seek, thirst and long for?
Honestly, I would earnestly seek water, thirst for water and long for water FIRST.
But the Psalmist here says that in a place where there is no water, He will muster up all his remaining strength left to seek God FIRST.
It makes sense, because Jesus says in Mathew 6:33 to seek Him FIRST…but without a constant reminder, wouldn’t this be hard to do?
Be reminded: Thirst for God FIRST. You will be satisfied with His presence, and every good thing will surely follow.
