Purposeful Pursuit ~ Part Two

I love David’s words in Psalm 63:1. Hear his heart. It says, “O God, You are my God; early will I seek You; my soul thirsts for You; my flesh longs for You in a dry and thirsty land where there is no water.” 

He wrote another. Psalm 42:1-1 says, “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. When shall I come and appear before God?” Do you thirst for the Lord? If not, I encourage you to pray one of
Tozer’s prayer. “Lord, I want to thirst to thirst for You.” 

It doesn’t matter why you have no thirst. Don’t get caught up on that. Pursue the Lord through words that awaken longing. “I want to want You. I desire to desire You. I thirst to be thirsty still.” O Lord, awaken our hearts in purposeful pursuit to know You through intimate communion.
