Quenching the Thirst Within


“But whoever drinks from the water that I will give him will never get thirsty again—ever! In fact, the water I will give him will become a well of water springing up within him for eternal life.” - John 4:14


My youngest daughter and I recently ventured out on a three-day backpacking trip. Our biggest concern was finding water on our second day. We had a water-purifying pump with us, but if we didn't find any water, the pump would be useless.

Days before the trip, I had prayed that we would find enough water to get us through. When we made it to our camping area, we found a water hole that was 2'x1' with about eight inches of water in it. We had enough water for the evening, but we weren't sure we’d have enough for the next day. That night we were hit with a thunderstorm, and it rained through the night. The next morning, we found that our water hole had become a raging brook. We even had a hard time crossing it!

God is good all the time! Not only does He supply our every need above and beyond what we need or deserve, but He also gives us the living water that is necessary for eternal life. He sustains us here on earth with water to quench our thirst and equips us with His living water so we will never thirst again!

Today, trust the Lord to meet all of your needs, both physical and spiritual. Take Him at His Word (Philippians 4:19) when He says that He will supply all of your needs according to His riches in glory.

  1. Have you ever been so thirsty you didn't think you could go on? What did you do?
  2. Where do you turn when you are down and out?
  3. When faced with a tough challenge, do you turn to the Lord first?
