As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for You, O God.” — Psalm 42:1 NKJV

Since Easter has helped us focus on Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross I though it would be timely to consider a closer relationship with Jesus.

Do you know what it is like to be really thirsty and not be able to get water? This was the case with our savior as He hung on the cross.

I picture the deer as it runs through the forest seeking water to quench its thirst. It eagerly laps it up when it comes upon the flowing brook.

The longer I go without drinking of His presence the thirstier I become. Then when I finally break through to His perceived presence I can drink of His presence and am refreshed and watered. Then I have water to pour out to others.

Let us resolve to run to Him with our spiritual thirst just as the deer runs to the water brook to satisfy its physical thirst. I always want to drink deeply of the living water God provided in Jesus.

PRAYER: Lord, help me to always be aware of my need to drink deeply of the spiritual water you generously provide. Give me many opportunities to share this living water with others through Christ Jesus. Amen.
