Separation from God usually comes in two phases. First we start to stray. Little by little we start to forsake fellowship, fail to meditate in His word and spend less and less time in prayer. Good things take us from the more important matters, urgent begins to replace the best. How subtle the path takes us. We end up farther and farther from home, away from the spiritual milieu that once fed our soul.
Second we not only stray, we actually find a new home. Jeremiah says not only do we forsake the spring of living water; we actually go out and dig our own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold any water. They look great on the outside but are empty on the inside.
“We make sure the outside looks good, but inside we are empty, and unfulfilled. Quit filling yourself with things that make you empty, approval of others, acceptance, drink the water💧 that fills the thirst- living water.”
Where are you today? Are you straying farther and farther from God? Have you actually moved away and found other interests that take top priority in your life? Stop! Go no farther. Turn back. Come to your Heavenly Father today and ask Him to cleanse your heart and put a new thirst in your soul leading you back to the spring of living water.
Father, forgive me for straying from You. I have forsaken Your living waters and have attempted to quench my own thirst. I admit that I am still thirsty. I know that only You can satisfy and I ask Lord that You would fill my cup today with Your life giving presence. In Jesus’ Mighty name. AMEN
