Daily Scripture

‘O God, you are my God; eagerly I seek you; my soul is a thirst for you.’ (Psalm 63:1)

Daily Reflection

Remember back to those lovely warm sunny days of the summer; when you were outside, working in the garden. You longed for a drink of water to quench your thirst. You went to the kitchen, got a glass, turned on the tap, filled it, and drank. And you felt better; not just because your thirst had been quenched, but because your whole body had been rehydrated. The water had taken away the dryness in your throat; but it had done more than that: the chemical balance of your whole body had been put right. Knowing God does the same for each of us. He satisfies us when we thirst for him; he affects our whole life. He is as easy to find as turning on a tap: pray; read the Bible; praise God – and you will be satisfied. “Your loving-kindness is better than life itself and so my lips shall praise you.” (Psalm 63:4)
