God Hunger

“O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water.” Psalm 63:1 --- Thoughts on today’s verse Addiction has been defined as “God-hunger directed to the wrong source of soul satisfaction.” Psalm 63 reminds us this is true. Deep in us is a desire to seek after God because he is not far from us and longs to be known by us (see Acts 17). But often when our soul-craving need for God is greatest, he is the last place we turn for satisfaction. Prayer: Holy Father, fill my heart with longing for you and my head with understanding that it is your presence I crave. I confess that I have often sought relief for my hunger in things that do not satisfy. I pledge today to recognize all other sources of satisfaction to be temporary and false. I promise to pursue you and your will through your word and your Spirit until I rest in your presence and grace. In the power of Jesus my Lord, Amen. by Phil Ware Used by Permission --- Further Reading •   God Is… •   Going Deeper with God •  Salvation Explained --- Follow Us On:  Facebook  • Twitter  •  Instagram  •  Pinterest --- The post God Hunger can be found online at Daily Devotionals by Thoughts about God.
