TOPIC: Desperate Hunger For God
SCRIPTURE: And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret. – Luke 5:1
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Where hunger is lacking, life is empty.
From our anchor Scripture, the Bible makes it clear that people pressed upon Jesus to hear the Word of God. While He was teaching, there was a great multitude of people who were hungry for God’s Word. It was not the need for miracles of healing, financial provision or food that brought them to Jesus but desperate hunger to hear God’s Word.
It is important to know that God does not ignore the desires of the desperate. When a man or woman is hungry for God, God never undermines that hunger (Matthew 5:6).
Your level of hunger for God, therefore, determines your degree of satisfaction in God. We are not satisfied with God at the same rate because our levels of hunger differ. When men are deficient in their hunger for God, they become spiritually frustrated. Many Christians are spiritually frustrated because they lack the hunger for God.
Psalm 81:10 says, ‘I am the Lord thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide and I will fill it.’
Where hunger is lacking, life is empty.
I prophesy a deep and unquenchable hunger for God’s Word in your life.
Remember this: Where hunger is lacking, life is empty.
1. Get rid of any form of arrival mentality in your spiritual walk with God.
2. Be permanently hungry for God.
