Are You Thirsty?

Are You Thirsty?

“Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters…” Isaiah 55:1

Have you ever been extremely parched and in great need of water? How did you feel? Did you find yourself consumed with thoughts of negativity and your great need for relief? What happened after you were given a drink of water? Was one glass enough to quench your thirst or did you crave more?

Life in the flesh can be full of parchment and dryness. Where do we go to quench our thirst from our struggles and receive renewal, guidance and love? Do you need a fountain of love that never runs dry? You will find that fountain, overflowing abundantly, at the foot of the cross where Jesus gave His life for your eternal salvation. The fountain is a gift – it is free!

As we seek Christ in our spiritual dehydration and develop a closer walk, He quenches our thirst. But then what happens? The more we drink from His source, the more we want…..just like that first glass of water. His fountain overflows daily and washes over our worries, pains, and sorrows and loves us unconditionally.

Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.” John 6:35

God loves YOU! He wants to quench your thirst and meet your every need. His desire is that you never thirst again, so come to His W-E-L-L!
W – Receive His Work
E – Receive His Energy
L – Receive His Lordship
L – Receive His Love


The Prayer of the Thirsty

Lord, I come thirsty.
I come to drink, to receive.
I receive your work on the cross and in your resurrection.
My sins are pardoned, and my death is defeated.
I receive your energy.
Empowered by your Holy Spirit, I can do all things through Christ, who gives me strength.
I receive your lordship, I belong to you.
Nothing comes to me that hasn’t passed through you.
And I receive your love.
Nothing can separate me from your love.

From the book, “Come Thirsty”, by Max Lucado
