“…there was no water for the people to drink. So they quarreled with Moses, and said, ‘Give us water to drink.’ Moses replied, ‘Why do you quarrel with me? Why do you put the LORD to the test?’”Exodus 17:1b-2
Only the Lord can quench your spiritual thirst. While on their desert journey, the Israelites drank water from the rock Moses had struck. Centuries later Paul showed how that points us to Jesus. “For they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ” (1 Corinthians 10:4). The Rock of our salvation turns our desert into a refreshing oasis.
Even in the desert Christ quenches our thirst. Let the dry spells come and go; our Oasis never runs dry.
