Have you been drinking?

Friday, January 13, 2006 (7:43 am)

Judges 16:20 And she said, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And he awoke out of his sleep, and said, I will go out as at other times before, and shake myself. And he wist not that the LORD was departed from him.

My wife was feeling terrible earlier this week. For a few straight days, she was battling bouts of fatigue, nausea and dizziness and we couldn't figure out what was going on. Finally last night, she tried drinking a few glasses of water — lo and behold, the sickness left her instantly!

When tourists come to Israel, and especially to these southern parts where we live, one of the first things they're warned is to make certain they drink enough water. The climate here is very dry — it fools you into thinking it's not as hot as it really is. You might not even feel thirsty, and before you know it, you can collapse from dehydration.

Experts say that although thirst would seem to be a main indicator of dehydration, it is actually not. By the time one feels thirsty, he or she may very well already be dehydrated!

Could the same be true with us spiritually? How many of us are walking around spiritually dehydrated and we don't even realize it? Satan, the enemy of our souls, would love nothing more than to keep us very busy and unaware of our dire need for the living water of the Word, prayer, worship and Godly fellowship. But we need to be smarter and take time to drink enough of these important nutritious spiritual beverages, that we might be strong and ready to do the work of the Lord!

Let's examine ourselves today. Have we been drinking enough? Let's make sure we are! We don't want to collapse — there's so much work to be done!
