A rumbling in the tummy would be easy to satisfy for some. But, what of the hunger for something greater?
All hungering is not bad. All hunger shows there is a lack somewhere that needs to be filled. All hunger says I have something in me that needs to be satisfied.
For that, I say, hunger on! For only when one is truly starving for more than what they currently possess do they allow that gnawing desire to push them to find a source of fulfillment.
Who doesn’t want a life characterized by fulfillment? Who doesn’t want to feel completely satisfied? Especially when it comes to our spiritual walk; a walk that says, in everything I have Lord, if You’re not in it, then I am empty. My life is nothing.
If the hunger is for more of the glitter and gold of this life then it is truly to be better without. For that hunger can drive you to places and things that will leave your soul starving. But, my friends, if it is more of Him that’s your desire, come, partake, and be satisfied for “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled,” (Matthew 5:6).
Let your desire drive you toward God. Let Him be the only quencher of your longing for everything.
Run! Grab Him that is the Bread of Life (John 6:35), and eat. Take your fill and don’t stop till you look at Him through the eyes of eternity, and say, now soul, you are full. For you have taken of Him fully and fully you shall live forevermore.
Father God, fill us up with more of You. Let everything that You are, be the satisfaction that everything in us is looking for. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
