What are you hungry for?

Do you ever feel like you are spinning your wheels? Do you ever feel like you are just in a hold pattern? Do you ever feel like there is something that you can see and need, but it is just out of your reach?

I have such a hunger in my heart for God. I am searching and seeking desperately for a Word from Him. I feel in my spirit that there is something that He wants me to do, but it's like He just isn't ready to show me. I feel restless in my spirit, so I just keep searching and seeking and feeling almost desperate.

The last 2 Thursday night worship services have been so powerful and filled with His presence so heavily, that it leaves me hungering for more. I so desire a closer relationship with God. I so desire to know Him more intimately. I so desire to be able to discern His voice and for Him to speak to me.

"Experiencing the manifest presence of God doesn't satisfy your hunger; it only whets your appetite for more."

I love that quote from Priscilla Shirer. I read that tonight as I was just pouring my heart and soul out to God and it just jumped out at me off the pages of the book. Yes! That is how I feel. I am just hungering for more and more. My heart is hungry for the manifest presence of God.

I want to be all consumed with a desire to get closer and closer to my Lord. I want to glory in His presence. I want to know Him.

"But from there you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul" Deuteronomy 4:29

I will continue seeking. I will continue searching. I will continue listening. I want to follow His plan for my life.

"Blessed are you who hunger now, For you will be filled." Luke 6:21

May your heart burn with hunger for more of our Father...for only in His presence in the heavenlies will our hunger be satiated. Any satisfaction found in this world, will be left wanting.

"I have such a hunger in my heart for God." Amen! I find myself hungry for His Word, which is exciting as I feel like I have come out of a season of just going through the motions in my Bible studies. Now, I find myself reading and asking questions when I stumble on what interests or even confuses me.
God bless you in your desire. I also remember someone speaking to our local church about transformation of entire regions through the gospel and prayer. One of the main things that she prayed is that our appetite for the things of God would increase. God bless you for cultivating that hunger! He is AWESOME!
