“Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and how inscrutable His ways!” Romans 11:33
It’s hard to imagine never thirsting again, isn’t it? Thirst will forever be a basic human need. Every morning when I wake up, I am parched, craving water, and run straight for the faucet. Life on this side of heaven will remain filled with all sorts of physical needs that will never fully be satisfied. We will continue to want and need all sorts of things until we take our final breath.
But then there is the soul. We were created for relationship with our Creator, and when that relationship is left untended or worse, non-existent, the pain of unmet longing and dissatisfaction is nearly unbearable. When tended to and nurtured in Christ’s love, our souls experience the unspeakable joy of true satisfaction, and what keeps us coming back for more is the depth of His matchless love, a well that never will run dry.
For each one of you staring down a difficult and seemingly impossible road ahead…for the one who can hardly bear the thought of tomorrow…for the one who has lost all hope for the future…for the empty, dry, weary, and burdened…for the defeated and tired…Jesus invites you today to meet Him at the well, a well with waters that will never run dry; a flood for your soul that will leave you forever satisfied while causing you to run back for more of Him because the one who has tasted and seen that the LORD is good will never cease to dive into the depths of His river.
Maybe you have sought satisfaction, significance, worth, and identity in everything but Jesus Christ. Today is the day to come to the Living Water and find rest for your soul. The riches and wisdom and knowledge of God surpass depths that we could even fathom. The more we come to know Him, the more we will want to know, and we’ll never have it all figured out until we see Him face to face. My prayer for you today is that Jesus would absolutely thrill you as you seek Him. I pray that as you take that first trembling step of faith toward His open, loving arms, you would experience the depths of His love for you in just one embrace and that you would never turn back.
