Hunger For God
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
How much do you want God? We are so quick to ask God for His blessings and His breakthroughs but are you willing to pay the price for the breakthrough. Even though God’s grace and love are freely given, there are areas of God that can only be accessed through consecration. One thing that I feel people fail to understand is that everything that God does and everything that Christ died for was to bring the whole entire world back into a close relationship with God. We so easily forget how humans used to live in Eden and what it was like to not experience God’s presence but live in it. Christ has called you and me to live in His presence not experience it or have an encounter with it, but to live, permanently live in it every second of our lives.
I won’t lie to you it isn’t easy, but God never said it would be easy, in fact, He told us that the road is narrow and few find it. Why? because it is in our nature to choose the easy option, and living for Christ is by no means easy. Nevertheless, we have grace, grace which will sustain us and pick us up when we fall. We have a God who is with us until the end. But to see this amaze God that I live for and relentlessly write about, you have to want Him. You have to hunger and thirst for Him and to get to a place where you live in His presence 247.
If you don’t feel like you want God enough or you feel like you need to love Him more, then start there. Start by praying for a deeper hunger and thirst for Christ. Jesus clearly states that it is those who hunger and thirst after righteousness, which are the things of God, who will be filled. See, God gave me a revelation about that scripture, that in order to be hunger you must be empty first. You cannot be hungry for God when you are already filled with things which are not of Him. So, you need to empty yourself out in order to be hungry so that God can fill you up and Give you more of Him.
