“When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I the Lord will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them.” ~ Isaiah 41:17 (KJV)
I have been so needy the past couple of weeks. I have felt as if there was something just beyond my reach that would help me see many things in a new and different light. A much better perspective. Just plain – dry and thirsty!
The water I need is flowing from the heart of God. It is a fountain which will never dry up. I can drink from this fountain freely because I am His child. This fountain is the Lord, Jesus Christ!
We are all poor and needy at some time in our lives. We could be going through a particularly difficult situation, burned out with life, or just not know which way to turn on the road we’re traveling. God will hear our cry!
He will not forsake us – but we do have to cry out to Him. We have to become desperate for Him. We have to seek His face and talk to Him continually. Jesus does not get tired of hearing from us. Guess what? There is nothing to big OR to small that He does not want to be involved in. He is our Father.
My prayer is that I always remember where to go when I become needy…that I drink from the fountain of Christ all the time…that I become a living witness to what the ‘water’ of Christ can do for this world. How about you?
