Hunger For Him

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.” — Matt5:6
People who hunger for approval from others or even fame and fortune will never be satisfied. But those who hunger and thirst for the good things God has, shall be filled. Notice which comes first; it is appetite then satisfaction.
Psalm 37:4 explains one ought to “delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.” That promise, however, has no effect if our hearts are empty of desire. Therefore, a lack of desire or appetite leads to receiving little or nothing from God.
Start stimulating your hunger and thirst for God and his rule in your life. For when we are passionate for those, we can be filled.
