O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; Psalms 63:1
Spiritually there is no water in the world. The world has nothing to offer me at all. I know that I have to seek God first, rise early and seek Him, for my soul cannot live without the life giving water my Father provides. My soul cannot live without Him it longs to be in fellowship with Him. 2Cor:5:6: Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: God made me to be in relationship with Him, I need Him to provide me with the living water, and bread for my existence It cannot be found weekly in a church, it has to be sought everyday. There are times in my life when I was so thirsty and dry, I would cry out to my Father for a touch from Him. God has allowed these times in my life to show me where my help comes from. Who provides the bread of life and the life giving water to drink. Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness. Isaiah 55: 1,2
The world is a big place, its noisy, dry and barren, I am not of the world, but the demands it places on me as I sojourn cause dryness in my soul. I cannot always hear His voice calling to me, I have to remember that He is the source of all that I need. I need to seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all things will be added to me. Early will I seek Him so I may be an oasis in the midst of a dry and barren world.
