Psalm 143:6 KJV
I stretch forth my hands unto thee: my soul thirsteth after thee, as a thirsty land. Selah.
When I was young I lived in a compound house and like some of the other children, would take turns to sweep the main compound when it got dirty.
To keep the dust from rising while sweeping, it was prudent to sprinkle some water on the compound first.
When temperatures were very high a little water on the ground almost vanishes. The ground quickly swallows up all the water as if no amount could satisfy it.
David in this Psalm compares his desire for the LORD to a dry piece of land in need of water. To quench this land requires not small amounts but a total dousing with water.
True desire is no lip service, nor is it public display of showmanship. It is a genuineness to seek Him deep within your heart, which culminates into actions that inspire onlookers.
I pray for a ‘thirsty-land-desire’ in your search for Him in Spirit and in Truth.
Have a blessed day.
