HUNGER AND THIRST FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS


If we want more of God, then we should spend more time seeking after His presence. Make plans to dine at His table; hunger and thirst for the things of God.


We will plan our entire day around dinning out at our favourite restaurant. Sometimes we even make a reservation for a certain time of the evening to dine there. We get dressed in our best clothes, wear our favourite perfume, and fix our hair to go out and satisfy our hunger and thirst for our favourite delights. We have devoted countless hours of our lives to satisfy the desires of our flesh.


Matthew 5:6

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


What if we planned a special time to spend with the Lord and got dressed in our best for Him? It would be an honorary dinner just for the King of kings and the Lord of lords. We could even reserve a time to hunger and thirst for all of the good things that He has. We could spend countless hours in His presence feasting on the righteousness that he wants to fill us with.
