Thirst

As Christians we should try our hardest to resist the thirst of temptation as we go through our daily trials. It is not easy, but such is the life of a Christian. There are an unlimited amount of things you can thirst for. You can thirst for food, for water, for people, for money, for attention, for validation, for relationships (romantic and/or platonic), luxurious materialistic things, wellbeing, a beautiful house, your dream car, a good job; the list goes on and on and on. It seems like it never stops, but in the lengthy list of things to thirst for, nothing comes close nor is more rewarding than to thirst after God and His good news.

To thirst for or after something means to desire it, to be attracted to it. When a person thirsts over something, they feel that it is capable of quenching them, that it will satisfy and bring pleasure to them. When we chase after the thirsts of the world and finally grasp them, we may feel satisfaction, but only for a transient period of time. We run time and time again to experience something ever so fleeting. We work so hard to be immersed in our desires just to lose that pleasure and be left feeling emptier than before. That’s the problem with thirsting for the world - it may make you feel like the luckiest person on Earth until your depression becomes crippling. Thirsting after God doesn’t leave you in such a state. To be honest, it’s more difficult to thirst after God than after the physical, worldly aspects of life, but the benefit of thirsting after God is that you will never thirst again. He is our water, he is our bread, he makes us full. With Jesus, you’ll never be dissatisfied. At the same time, you can never be too full of Jesus; that’s the beauty of Him.The outcomes of longing for the Lord are always eternal unlike when you long for the world. It will never leave you feeling empty or worse than your previous condition. Thirsting for God doesn’t fill you just to drain you shortly afterwards., it fills you up with no need to replenish you later on because it lasts forever, in other words, the effects are everlasting. Whenever you may feel the need to be pleasured, don’t look to the world, look to God who is waiting to fill you up with a happiness, peace, and satisfaction that can’t be matched. And it’s totally free to claim. Isn’t that amazing?
