Are You Thirsty?

Are you thirsty?

Like really, really thirsty? The type of thirst where your mouth is parched and you would do anything for a tall glass of iced water? Like the type of thirst you watch play out in the movies. The scene is set with a man stumbling lost through the desert. For days he has been moving across the arid landscape and is desperate for water. In the distance, he spots what he is longing—an oasis with a gleaming watery pool. Recharged and renewed by hope, he sprints ahead only to discover that which we already knew—it was a mirage.

Are you thirsty yet? I don’t know about you, but I could really use an iced cold Coca-Cola about now. Most of us have probably never been in a situation like that, but David shares of a similar thirst in the book of Psalms.

O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; 

my soul thirsts for you; 

my flesh faints for you, 

as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.

 Ps 63:1 (ESV)

 So, I ask again, are you thirsty? Not for a tall glass of ice water, but for God. Maybe you desire a relationship with Him, but you don’t know where to start. Start crying out to Him. Maybe you have a developing relationship with Him. Continue crying out to Him. Maybe you have a solid relationship with Him. Be reminded to cry out to Him. David gives us a great example of how to start, continue, and have a solid relationship with God. Talk with Him…PRAY!

As the Global Week of Student Prayer begins September 23, be reminded to pray. We desire for each of us to have a personal relationship with Jesus, and prayer is essential. In fact, we believe this is such an important reminder that Cornerstone Church is hosting a Worship Night for middle school, high school and college students throughout the valley to kick off the Global Week of Student Prayer. Please be praying for this event and spread the word to any and all who may be interested. There will be games, giveaways, prayer, and worship featuring Zion Worship. It will be a night challenging students to pray together as a valley. The Worship Night is at Cornerstone Church in the Worship Center on Sunday, September 23 at 6pm.
