What kind of life is satisfying? We usually think that if we make a difference in this world that our life will have meaning and purpose. Well, that is good and true. However, it is not that we did our job well, as important as it is – it’s also not that we helped someone, which is really important. Scripture tells us that it is when we please our Father in heaven in WHATEVER we say or do. Our purpose in life is to glorify our Father God.
Did we pray and have fellowship with the Lord today? Did we read His Word and gain insight for our spiritual walk? If we didn't, we will not grow in the things of the Lord. If we are not drinking from the River of Life, which is Jesus, then we won't be of much use to anyone or ourselves.
We all need to be refreshed in the Lord whether we are a new Christian or one that has walked in Christianity for a while. "My inner self thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and behold the face of God?" -Psalm 42:2
You remember the song - Fill My Cup Lord. "Fill my cup Lord, I lift it up Lord, come and quench this thirsting of my soul." A cup is nothing!!! I decided to hold up a BUCKET! I want to be filled up, spilled out and overflowing. I don't want any more dryness and emptiness.
"Oh God, You are my God, earnestly will I seek you; my inner self thirsts for You, my flesh longs and is faint for You, in a dry and weary land where no water is." -Psalm 63:1 (Amplified Bible)
You want a satisfying life? Let's drink until we are full. Jesus said that if we are thirsty, He alone could satisfy the deepest longing of our souls. "Jesus answered, "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 4:13,14 (NIV)
