O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
Diving into God’s Word daily and enriching your relationship with Him through prayer allows God’s strength to flow freely throughout your life. Like Jeremiah 17:8 illustrates, you will be “like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water.” You will be prepared for trials and struggles when they come. The alternative is to be stranded in a dry desert where anxiety and fear reside. Enrich your spiritual life by watering it with prayer and God’s Word on a daily basis.
