Today’s Scripture(s) – Psalm 42:1-2, 5,11
“As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God? … Why are thou cast down, O my soul? And why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance. … Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.”
How thirsty are you for the Lord your God? A hart is a deer, sometimes the deer has to run and run and run through open space, through the woods. What is the deer running from? The deer is running from a predator, seeking to take his life. I imagine at those times that the deer must run for his life that he becomes excruciatingly thirsty and he pants trying to find pure water, the deer roams through the wood looking, searching for water to quench his thirst. Is your thirst for the Lord like this? Are you thirsting for the Lord so much so that your cry is …’when shall I come and appear before God’? I went to sleep last night saying to the Lord ‘I need you Lord, I need you so much’ and I awoke this morning with the same words on my lips and with the presence of the Lord surrounding me. Did you know that you can ask the Lord to increase your thirst for Him? Did you know that you can ask the Lord to increase your desire to know Him more, to know Him better? Did you know that you can ask the Lord to increase your determination to seek His face, to seek Him out? Are you aware that if you ask the Lord to do these things that He most assuredly will do them for you? It is He who gives us the desire to want to be in His presence. It is He who gives us the desire to study His word. It is He who gives us the desire to pant after Him. All we have to do is ask, ask believing that He will do it and you will appear before God the Father. The Psalmist says “….I will yet praise him for the help of his countenance.” Countenance is the face; one’s visage, and ‘Countenance’ is also – approval or favor; encouragement and support. Don’t allow your soul to be cast down Righteous One’s, you who seek to do the will of the Father, you who seek to obey His commands, you who love Him with all your heart and with all your might. Don’t allow your soul to be cast down Righteous One’s, you who love Him with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your being. Don’t allow your soul to be cast down Righteous One’s, you that thirsts, you that pant after Him like the deer pants after the water brook. Hope in the Lord and know, believe and trust that the face of the Lord God is shining on you because you have made Jesus His only begotten Son, Lord of your life and the face of God the Father is shining on you with approval, with encouragement and with His unmerited favor. Praise Him for He is your help and He is the health of your countenance and He is your God!

If You Have Not Made Jesus Lord Of Your Life Pray This Prayer:
Today Lord, right this very minute I acknowledge that I am a sinner and I need a Savior. Your word says that there is no other name under heaven by which a man or woman can be saved and that name is Jesus. Today I repent of every sin that I have ever committed, I repent of every sin that I have done and I ask you Jesus to come into my life and be my Lord and Savior. I believe that you Lord Jesus shed your precious blood and died for my sins, I am willing to turn from sin and live a life that is holy and pleasing in your sight. I now invite you Christ Jesus to come into my heart and live in me and be my personal Savior. I ask that you would fill me with your precious Holy Spirit, lead and guide me in this life Lord Jesus. Thank you for saving my soul. Amen.
