Have you ever been so thirsty that you keep drinking soda or juice but no matter
how much you drink somehow the thirst does not get satisfied; then you reach for a bottle of water and it taste so refreshing and is satisfying, then you discover that your body was craving water all along? Jesus said in John 6:35, "I am the Bread of Life. Come every day to me and you will never be hungry. Believe in me and you will never be thirsty." We all have that longing, yearning, hunger for God, sometimes we even feel empty like we're missing something. As we begin to search, looking to satisfy that hunger and to fill those void places, the enemy comes along and dupes us with his counterfeit, which leads us down a wide road of misery and unhappiness still yet feeling hungry and thirsty. Each and everyone of us are wired with a deep desire and need for God that only He can meet, there is no substitute. David in Psalms 42:1-2A declares, "As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God." That inner yearning that's taking place on the inside of us, is our deep desire to be with God. Many times we do not realize that it's God we are craving until we get ourselves all jammed up chasing after the wrong things. Let me tell you today, that just how your body can only be satisfied by water when you are thirsty, is the same way our deep yearning and thirst can only be satisfied by God. Today let Jesus be your first choice. Let Him be the top priority in your life. Allow him to quench that thirst, satisfy that hunger and fill the void places in your life. Jesus has everything you need. He said "Whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him, will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life" (John 4:14). Come on, will you trust Him with your life today? He is the thirst quencher.
