I come to Jesus.
I believe in Jesus.
So how can I be hungry? hungry for God?
I have an insatiable appetite for my God.
God reminds me of His Ways.
My heart hungers for the taste of the One Who loves me so. His love is always waiting for me. That insatiable hunger that can never seem to be filled to the brim because I am who I am, this human being.
I hunger for His touch. I want to know He is right here. (He is, Linda. He is with you always…I remind myself.)
I hunger for His very Presence. He tells me He is in my life; He never leaves me nor forsakes me.
I hunger because I look to the world for the fulfillment of that which only God can give me completely.
God has so much more to give to me than I can possibly know.
Know then in your heart that, as a man disciplines his son, the Lord your God disciplines you. So you shall keep the commandments of the Lord your God by walking in his ways and by fearing him. Deuteronomy 8:5-6
Only God can quench the hunger and the thirst with His Living Waters, with His Love, with Himself. He calls me to be obedient. He will discipline me. He humbles me. I may be hungry, but He will quench my hunger with Himself. (Only God, Linda.)
For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, flowing out in the valleys and hills, a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive trees and honey, a land in which you will eat bread without scarcity, in which you will lack nothing, a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills you can dig copper. Deuteronomy 8:7-9
The LORD my God leads me into abundance of life, of living, as I follow His ways, walk in obedience to His Voice.
Jesus knew… He knew God’s commandments … the Truth. Jesus’ obedience is sure. His relationship with His Father brought Him through the temptation. I eat the Word. I devour His Truth. I learn of His Ways. I will not hunger nor thirst as I live by the Word.
Your words were found, and I ate them, and Your words became to me a joy and the delight of my heart, for I am called by Your name, O LORD, God of hosts. Jeremiah 15:16
And you shall eat and be full, and you shall bless the Lord your God for the good land he has given you. Deuteronomy 8:10
I shall not live by bread alone, LORD. I come to You with a hunger and thirst for You, for only You, knowing that You are my Fulfillment. Forgive me when I look to the world for that filling. Forgive me for my disobedience, for my closed eyes and ears. You have promised to take me into Your Promised Land. I want to eat from Your abundance, from Your Word. I want to bless You, my Abba. AsI thirst and hunger for more, I know You are already filling me because You love me. And I love You, Sweet LORD. Amen.
