Yesterday, our church planting group met for a time of worship. I thoroughly enjoyed singing praise songs and hearing a great word from Psalm 63: O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you.
David wrote this Psalm during a dark time of fleeing his enemy. While it was written during such a time, David brings great hope for living with a future confident in knowing God.
Our leader, Sergei, shared 3 truths why people don’t thirst for God. The first reason could be that a person doesn’t have a regenerated heart. Secondly, sin in a believer’s life. Sin closes our eyes to the truth. Our priorities change and one may not have a desire to be with other believers. Lastly, sometimes a person doesn’t see the value of thirsting for God.
My heart was greatly challenged by Sergei’s words. I pray that our group will thirst after God’s heart for the center of Donetsk. I pray that we will be stirred to move out of our complacency. I pray we will see what God values in His creation. Lord, help me thirst for what is important to You.
