Day 38: Thirsting For His Presence

“As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God.”

Psalm 42:1 NIV

Are you thirsty today for His presence? Do you need a touch from Heaven? Do you want to walk in a greater anointing upon your life?

Jesus said, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink” (John 7:37b NIV). He is the Source. It is up to you to come to Him, admitting in surrender that He alone can fill your life with all the fullness of God.

“You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water. I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory. Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands. I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you.”

Psalm 63:1-5 NIV

As your fellowship with God increases, He will draw you into a deeper, closer, and greater walk with Him, anointing you with a power that will help you live a life of joy, freedom, liberty, deliverance, and glory that only God Almighty can give!

Walking in our Lord’s presence is a daily process. We must come to Christ Jesus each day to be filled again. Life’s trials and situations will cause you to leak out the power with which you have been filled. 

Daily fellowship with the Lord is the key to abundant living. Jesus Himself promised, “I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows)” (John 10:10 AMP). And as you move into God’s abundance, there is a river to go to where you will never thirst again. In His presence, you will find all you will ever need. In Christ Jesus, you are fully accepted, fully redeemed, and fully forgiven.

When you are thirsty, spend time in God’s presence. Get alone with Him wherever you are. He is the only one who can fill you and satisfy your soul.
