4Some wandered in the wilderness, lost and homeless. 5Hungry and thirsty, they nearly died. 6“Lord, help!” they cried in their trouble, and he rescued them from their distress. 7He led them straight to safety, to a city where they could live. 8Let them praise the Lord for his great love and for the wonderful things he has done for them. 9For he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.Psalm 107:4-7
Some of the Israelites literally wandered in sandy deserts without food when the Lord rescued them and brought them back to Jerusalem.
I have never wandered in a desert nor been so physically thirsty or hungry that I thought I would die. I know. We say we are going to die. We aren’t.
But I have been in a spiritual wasteland, lost and homeless, so hungry and thirsty for spiritual refreshment that my soul was dying. I needed help! I cried out to the Lord and he delivered me. He led me to a place I call home, a place I found the nutrition I needed, a place my hunger and thirst were satisfied. He filled me with good things and satisfied the longings of my heart. Praise the Lord for his great love!
In the New Testament, Jesus said it like this:
6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.Matthew 5:6
Are you wandering in a spiritually desolate place, without adequate nutrition? Cry out to the Lord for help. He will lead you to a place you can call home, to a place that supplies the refreshment you need!
