The Bible tells us about a woman who was tired of going to the well every day. In reading of the account we know that she was speaking of physical thirst, but we also come to realize that she was searching for more than that. Jesus saw her heart and told her that . . .
In Matthew 5: 6 we read,
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled.
The woman at the well accepted the words of Jesus and many believed in Him because of her testimony. They obviously saw the new life in her. When the thirst in our soul takes us to the Living Water we find the spring that keeps on giving. Yes, we still need to drink, but it is right there . . . . strength, guidance and comfort in prayer and in God's Word as we worship Him in spirit and in truth.
Lord, you see the dry lips, the parched hearts in our souls, the thirst we have tried to quench in all the wrong places. Take our cup and fill it up to overflow.
