I have such feeling time to time. I just long to feel Him more closely, see Him.
So i wondered, when my thirst become so strong, that i cry, how to get ride of that feeling, what is it?
So, that is what i feel sometimes:
As a deer pants for flowing streams,
so pants my soul for you, O God.
My soul thirsts for God,
for the living God.
O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you;
my flesh faints for you,
as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
Then one day i started to read Psalm’s again, from the beginning. And i wonder, still wonder, how blind i really am? There is answer and it’s working :
Blessed is the man
who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners,
nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
but his delight is in the law of the Lord, (BIBLE now)
and on his law he meditates day and night.
He is like a tree
planted by streams of water
that yields its fruit in its season,
and its leaf does not wither.
So – be aware, what you are doing and… READ BIBLE.
When i started to read Bible more often again, that feeling of thirst slowly go away. Sometimes get’s stronger, for a while.
I often did start to search something from internet posts, when i felt thirsty. That is how it ended – so far , almost always.
For the fool speaks folly,
and his heart is busy with iniquity,
to practice ungodliness,
to utter error concerning the Lord,
to leave the craving of the hungry unsatisfied,
and to deprive the thirsty of drink.
Thing is – even with good attend to do good: people, who just fantasy and say – Look that happened to me! – are insane, hoping , that LIE can become water of life.
You can’t deceive God. HE MAKE YOUR”S WORDS INTO WATER OF LIFE! If you lie, even with good reason, your’s words will be soon “to leave the craving of the hungry unsatisfied, and to deprive the thirsty of drink.” i just couldn’t figure out, why i feel bad, when reading those posts. Yes i tried to warn them, stop them, but i didnt succeed.
Don’t do it, please, if you care. Don’t lie, even if you mean it for good reason. Lie NEVER help, build up, or what ever, LIE ALWAYS DESTROY! even if readers don’t know, you are lying.
If you thirsty – read Bible, talk with God – if you already know how and wait for Him – He’s answers are always so amazing ❤
