“As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for You, O God.” Psalm 42:1 (NIV)

 Imagine that you’ve been out in the hot desert sun all day long without a drop of water and you finally come to a fresh stream and take in that wonderful, clear, soothing water. That is how the psalmist in Psalm 42 felt about hearing from the Lord. We also should be like this deer he mentioned. We should crave the living water of the Lord as much as we crave and need water for survival. Whether we feel downcast and disturbed like the psalmist or if we are experiencing God’s greatest blessings, we should put our hope in God and thank Him for the things He has done. Not only should we cast our cares on Him, but we should also seek Him in joy and in despair, for He is our water of life (John 4:13-14).


  1. Yes, we definitely should crave God's presence in our life as the first necessity of our soul. Unfortunately, we tend to go chasing after everything else.

    1. Very true, we get caught up in the demands of the day and forget what's most important. Thanks for stopping by :)
