“As the deer pants for flowing streams, so pants my soul for you, O God.” Psalm 42:1
Think of the last time you were so thirsty that you just couldn’t go on without a drink. This isn’t something with which we Americans are very familiar, but it is the kind of thirst expressed here by David - a desperation for the living God to intervene in his messy life. O, how Psalm 42 speaks to my heart! David ends his soul’s deep cry for help with this truth... HOPE IN GOD! He is our salvation and will come through for us without fail. Cry out to Him and believe!
