My soul thirsts for God – Devotional for the third day of Lent

My soul thirsts for God Devotional for the third day of Lent

The third day of Lent is when we can step back from our busy lives and focus on our relationship with God. In Psalm 42:2, the psalmist expresses a deep longing for God. This is a familiar feeling during Lent as we strive to draw closer to God through prayer, fasting, and other spiritual practices.

Devotional for the 3rd day of Lent

“My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?” (Psalm 42:2)

The psalmist’s words are both inspiring and comforting. They remind us that it’s okay to feel a longing for God, especially during struggle or uncertainty. This longing is a sign of our spiritual thirst, a desire to connect with something greater than ourselves.

Devotional for every day here: Daily Devotional

When the psalmist asks, “When can I go and meet with God?” it’s a reminder that God is always present and available to us. We don’t have to wait for a specific time or place to connect with God. We can meet with God anytime, anywhere, through prayer, meditation, or simply by being present.

We can use this time during Lent to deepen our spiritual practice and draw closer to God. This may involve setting aside time for daily prayer or meditation, attending church services, or volunteering in our communities. Whatever practices we choose should be meaningful and help us connect with God on a deeper level.

As we journey through Lent, let us remember the words of Psalm 42:2 and embrace our spiritual thirst. Let us seek opportunities to meet with God and deepen our relationship. And let us trust that God is always with us, guiding us on our journey and comforting us in times of need.
