Hunger and Thirst

Matthew 5:6

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.

As this world continues to struggle with sin and at times seems that sin is winning through the lives of people in this life pursuing idolatry in so many ways. Lust for each other, envy, hatred, murder, alcohol, drugs, sex, thievery, power, gluttony, self sacrifice and money. Not caring if those around them get hurt in their aftermath. We feel like it’s within our own strength to be filled. Instead we should pursue the Lord and understand that He alone can give us what our bodies need. 2 Timothy 2:22 Run from anything that stimulates youthful lusts. Instead, pursue righteous living, faithfulness, love, and peace. Enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts. Seek the kingdom of God and we will be filled.

Dear Lord, I come to you today understanding that nothing of this world will take away this hunger in my life besides You. As I continue to struggle with sin, I seem to want to hold tightly to that of food. I have had 50 years of looking to food as my consoler. That which is tangible and easy to come by. I pray that I will give that sin over to you. That I will seek Your filling and not look to food or any other type of tangible thing on earth. I pray that my mind will be moldable to Your teachings and no other will be satisfying. I can’t do it on my own Lord! Amen!
