Drink Deep

In Great Britain we don’t suffer from the severe drought which affect so many parts of the world. When I lived near London it sometimes didn’t rain for a number of weeks. Then my garden became parched, plants wilted and everything was crying out for rain.

Then the day comes when the skies darken, the temperature lowers, the heavens are opened and the rain slashes down. The earth can be heard soaking up the moisture with a thankful sigh and even the birds seems to sing a fuller song.

Spiritually we can suffer from drought as well. When we neglect to read our Bibles, talk to God or worship with other Christians, our lives can become dry and thirsty. It is then we need to repent, return to God and drink deep of His promises.
