Thirsting for Him

It is amazing what kids sponge up. In our family devotions we are going through the Psalms together. When we started at Psalm 1, it is written about a tree that was planted by a river and it brings about much fruit there, God will not allow its leafs to wither; this tree is a symbol of a man who delights in the law of the Lord and meditates on it day and night. I made a big deal about that tree and explained how God is like the stream. God has no wants or needs; He is free! He needs nothing from us. But God absolutely takes pleasure in one thing from us and that is to drink from His everlasting waters. And if we drink faithfully like the tree by the river, we will never wither, God will sustain us; we will prosper under God's hand.

It has been days since we shared that time in God's words and yet everytime Trinity sees a tree without all its leaves, she says, "God's tree has all of its leaves!" and Misty tells her, "Yes, honey, we are like that tree if we thirst for God and drink of Him"


Psalm 1
1Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
2But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
3And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
4The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
5Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
