Thirsting for God New
Hunger and Thirst desires we cannot put out of our minds, no matter what time of day or night! Some of us have been hungry at all hours of the night or at work, while watching a movie it doesn’t’ matter when we know we food or water!
That is what we as a Christians we as a church need to be again!
Psalm 63:1–8 (KJV 1900)
1 O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: My soul thirsteth for thee, My flesh longeth for thee In a dry and thirsty land, where no water is; 2 To see thy power and thy glory, So as I have seen thee in the sanctuary. 3 Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, My lips shall praise thee. 4 Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name. 5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; And my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips: 6 When I remember thee upon my bed, And meditate on thee in the night watches. 7 Because thou hast been my help, Therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice. 8 My soul followeth hard after thee: Thy right hand upholdeth me.
