Pant For God

1 As a deer pants for flowing streams, so pants my soul for you, O God. ~ Psalms 42:1

David compared his desire to God to a deer panting for water. Is that the Church today? We get so caught up in the tv shows, Hollywood, and the rich and famous that we seem to think that they are our best friends, and we are prepared to fight tooth and nail to defend them.

Christians are prepared to get up at 3 O’Clock in the morning to watch the royal wedding but can’t get up at 10 a.m. to go to church. The world and all of its delicacies are constantly trying to woo us over. We see them driving the nice cars, and some have their own Learjet. They live in huge mansions with exquisite Olympic pools and beautiful gardens. And it’s easy to get lost in all the noise.

Our soul often pants for the world instead of for God. We allow our flesh to guide us instead of the Holy Spirit. When we seek after the world, it’s like running miles and miles on end for life and then stopping to drink poison from the person you’re running from. The world doesn’t want what’s best for you; it takes evil and dresses it up as beauty. Everything we do here on earth decides where and how we will spend eternity. Don’t allow the world to deceive you; only God has the living water to end your thirst.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Pant For God.
