ARE YOU HUNGRY?


ARE YOU HUNGRY?

Matthew 5:6 (NKJV) “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.”

Are you hungry for the things of God?   Do you thirst for Him and His Word?  We, as born-again Christians, need an attitude of hungering after God and the things of God. We need to have a burning desire for Him.  Then, as this passage says, we will be filled.

Look at the Psalmist as he hungers for God, and God alone.  When we hunger like this, everything else comes in line.  We will be filled.

Psalms 42:1-2 As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for You, O God. 2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God?

Psalms 63:1 O God, You are my God; early will I seek You; my soul thirsts for You; my flesh longs for You in a dry and thirsty land where there is no water.

Psalms 27:4-6 One thing I have desired of the LORD, that will I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in His temple. 5 For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock. 6 And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me; therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD.

Psalms 27:8 When You said, “Seek My face,” my heart said to You, “Your face, LORD, I will seek.”

When we get really hungry for God our Father, and the things of God, look out!  WE WILL BE FILLED!

So today, talk to your Heavenly Father and tell Him that you want this hunger, and ask Him how you can keep it in your life.  Do not settle for anything less, because He is our everything.

Confession: Today, I declare that God my Father is my everything.  He is my life and my love.  Today, I want to be so filled with Him, through Jesus Christ the Son.
