Discussion for Psalms 42:2

  • Jesse M Rodriguez on Psalms 42:2
    It got me to think, can I ask God for thirst and hunger towards Him?If so, what kind of relationship do I have if I have to ask?
  • Bill on Psalms 42:2
    For many saints and servants of God in our day, their so called Christian experience is pitifully characterized by shallowness, hollowness, and emptiness. This miserable spiritual existence has left their soul in much the same condition as a hunted animal Ps. 42 , a dehydrated body Ps. 63 , or a parched wasteland Ps. 143 . Instead of thriving they are only surviving with just a limited awareness of God at work in or through their life. In his classic book, The Pursuit of God, A.W. Tozer said it so well, The world is perishing for lack of the knowledge of God and the Church is famishing for want of His presence. cr. Tom Palmer Thirsting for God
