What quenches your thirst?

We have been so blessed the past couple of days! The Thirst Conference began in this area Sunday night. Some of you may be totally confused about what I am talking about. This is one component of Life Action Ministries....and one that has a huge impact on the lives of Christians. One of our road teams (the White Team) travels the U.S. going from church to church sharing their burden for revival. Their conferences are a little different than what came to our church in 2004 and 2006. This team is not quite as large. They basically have a praise team instead of a full group of singers....but what a blessing!!
So, last night Trent really got serious with us and asked us some pretty hard questions. We were made to worship and whether we realize it or not...we are worshipping something...all day! The question is....what?? As Christians we know what the answer should be....but is it?? Are we filling our days worshipping God or are we allowing something else to quench our thirst? Some of those things (and yes, some of these artificial substitutes apply to my life as well) might be....approval, money, job, children, sports, marriage, divorce, houses, cars, acceptance, reputation, religion, gambling, even American Idol....anything that you "worship" instead of worshipping Almighty God!
Whatever you run to when you are thirsty reveals what you worship.
Will you allow your thirst to drive you to God...or drive you crazy???

"If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, 'Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.'"
