“Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters…” Isaiah 55:1
“Thirsty?”, I asked on of the teen boys hiking with my husband and I in Red Rock Canyon in Colorado Springs the other day. We’d been climbing boulders and rock formations for hours. Colorado Springs was melting in an unusual heat wave that afternoon with temps soaring to 101.
He should have been VERY thirsy, but, “Nope.”, was his reply.
Nope?! hmmmm…. I remembered what I’d read that when a body is in the habit of not drinking water very often, it loses it’s ability to feel thirst. And by the time the poor-drinking-habited person feels thirsty? tsk, tsk, tsk — they’re way dehydrated.
How’s your drinking habits? Spiritually, that is. Do you drink often from the well of the Word? Or are you dehydrated? Drinking often develops your desire to drink. The more you read the Bible the more you’ll want to.
Pray and ask God to develop your thirst….
“..like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation” 1 Peter 2:2
“…Jesus, tired as he was from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about the sixth hour. When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, ‘Will you give me a drink?’ The Samaritan woman said to him, ‘You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?’ (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.
Jesus answered her, ‘If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.’ ‘Sir,’ the woman said, ‘you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water?’
Jesus answered, ‘Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.’ “ John 4: 6-10, :13-16
