Thirsty for God?

Click here to listen to blog

Everything is finished! I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will freely give water from the life-giving fountain to everyone who is thirsty.  All who win the victory will be given these blessings. I will be their God, and they will be my people.

Revelation 21:6-7

Are you "thirsty for God" or do you want to be thirsty for God? In some parts of the world being thirsty for God is not something you even notice. When you have even the smallest desire for God you can satisfy it without anyone interfering.

But there are places, and you may be there yourself, where pursuing God is not encouraged or even officially allowed! If you run after God in those countries you must be careful because there are those who are ready to persecute you or even kill you for your faith in Jesus Christ.

When you are denied water your thirst grows even greater and when men attempt to deny you access to Jesus Christ your thirst for Him blossoms and grows! That is part of the reason that you will find greater faith in places where Christians are persecuted for their faith. With persecution comes greater thirst!

Never forget that Jesus will satisfy your thirst for Him! How much do you long for and thirst for Jesus Christ? The more you want Jesus, the more you will have of Him! Never be afraid of venturing out into the dry desert of this life, because Jesus will satisfy your thirst! He is an unending supply of life giving water!

"Lord Jesus, my life is empty without You, and my thirst for You grows every day. Satisfy me with Your life giving water, today and tomorrow and every day for Eternity. Praise Your Name forever. Amen."
