Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 02/19/12

This week’s scripture is from Psalms:

“I remember the days of old;
I meditate on all Your works;
I muse on the work of Your hands.
I spread out my hands to You;
My soul longs for You like a thirsty land.”
          (Psalm 143:5-6)

Blessed be the soul that is thirsty, that longs for God, for it will be filled. For a river of Living Waters flows from beneath the throne of God: a river of life, a purifying flood, a cleansing stream, a revitalizing flow that brings life to a dry soul. Soak up the waters like a parched land soaks up the gentle rain from heaven. Immerse yourself beneath the flood and let the waters flow over you. Drink deep of the water of life; be filled with the Holy Spirit; be refreshed and restored, for the water He gives becomes a fountain springing up into eternal life. Lift up your hands, praise the Lord, and soak in His presence.

May the Lord bless you to thirst for Him, and for your soul to be refreshed in Him.
