In the stillness of the night, we can become so aware of our great need of God to calm our fears, to still our hearts and minds with peace. We sleep and wait for the sun to rise knowing it holds coffee to quench our physical thirst, and a quiet time with God’s Word to quench our greater spiritual thirst.

Our thirst for God ebbs and flows throughout our lives, at times greater than other times yet always there.

O God, You are my God; I shall seek You earnestly; My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You, In a dry and weary land where there is no water.” (Psalm 63:1, NASB)

When David wrote this psalm, he was in a dry and weary land where no water could be found. While he may have been physically experiencing dehydration, he was also spiritually longing for God.

His desert experience caused him to learn he could no more live without a vibrant walk with God any more than he could go without a drink of water.

His physical thirst heightened his awareness of his spiritual thirst.

Upon once having a vision of Jesus, Julian of Norwich wrote:

“For he still has the same thirst and longing which he had upon the Cross, which desire, longing and thirst, as I see it, were in him from without beginning; and he will have this until the time that the last soul which will be saved has come up into his bliss. God’s thirst is to have [us], generally drawn into him …”

(from 4”“Day Journey with Julian of Norwich, Lisa E. Dahill, Editor, page 36)

Can we even imagine ”“ God thirsts for us.
