From Fear Not by Max Lucado
If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.– John 7:37-38
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.– Psalm 42:1-2
I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts.– Revelation 21:6
You Maker wired you with thirst–a "low-fluid indicator." Let your fluid level grow low, and watch the signals flare. Dry mouth. Thick tongue. Deprive your body of necessary fluid, and your body will tell you.
Deprive your soul of spiritual water, and your soul will tell you. Dehydrated hearts send desperate messages. Snarling tempers. Waves of worry. Growling mastadons of guilt and fear. You think God wants you to live with these? Hopelessness. Sleeplessness. Irritability. Insecurity. These are symptoms of a drynesss deep within.
Treat your soul as you treat your thirst. Flood your heart with a good swallow of water.
Where do you find water for the soul? Jesus gave an answer: "If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water" (John 7:37-38).
