More Than Bread Devotional for 8/11/11

Psalm 63:1
O God, you are my God,
earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you,
my body longs for you,
in a dry and weary land
where there is no water.

How much do you seek God? Do you seek him desperately? Earnestly?  With a large part of the country in severe drought, some know well the vital importance of water.  David wrote this Psalm while he was in the desert.  I will confess, sometimes I don’t drink as much water as is recommended.  I use other liquids to get me by.  This week I have been sick and water has become a much higher priority.  I think we do the same thing with God sometimes.  We need to seek God in a way that acknowledges that we can’t survive without Him and not just go to Him when we have exhausted other options.  Are you trying to make it by without God, or are you seeking Him earnestly for your survival?
