This Psalm is for anyone going through a trial that leaves you feeling separated from God’s presence. For any who have tasted that living water, a season of spiritual dryness can feel like a vast desert.
Encourage yourself. Talk to yourself like the Psalmist did. Speak faith. Put your hope in God. You will be in His presence again!
God often teaches us the value of His mercies by causing us to feel the want of them. Thirst teaches us the value of water and hunger the value of food. So spiritual hunger and thirst teach us the immense value of His presence.
