Deer seek ponds and lakes, not only to drink but also to feed upon aquatic vegetation. Wading in deep water also gives them protection against stinging insects.
Ps 63: 1
You are my God. I worship you. In my heart, I long for you, as I would long for a stream in a scorching desert.
If only our hearts truly did seek him like a deer seeks water.. Our soul should seek YHWH's protection from the stinging darts satan throws at us, our soul should long to feed on his word daily..
