Prattville Dragoons SCV Camp 1524 Chaplain's Column for July 2017

A Thirst for God
Psalm 63:1-8
     A personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ has the potential to be more intimately satisfying than any earthly connection. King David recorded his experience in Psalm 63. Our heavenly Father wants to have a loving bond with us just as He did with David.
     Making a firm commitment to know Him is the first step, which takes priority above all other matters. David described his passion to know God as an intense thirst. The apostle Paul likened his dedication in pursuing the Lord to a race. When we pledge ourselves to the lordship of Christ and seek after Him with our hearts and minds, we will find our souls becoming satisfied.
     When we resolve to follow after the Lord, our next step is to spend time in His Word. The Bible is God’s revelation of Himself and His plan for the world. Making time to read and meditate on Scripture is essential for every believer. That’s how we learn who God is, how He works, and what He desires for us and for the body of Christ.     Dedicating time to knowing and experiencing God is a critical step toward a satisfying walk with Him. Begin today by making a pledge to pursue Him more diligently and taking time in your schedule for regular study and prayer. Your heavenly Father is waiting to meet with you.

     Let’s remember those on our prayer list and others that you can think of who need a touch by our Heavenly Father.
