Most days, if I am honest, I don’t always think of my walk as being an appetite needing to be fed.
I focus too much at times on what I am about to eat, or what I need to wear, or making sure I work enough to cover my bills.
But just as I would never see one of my kids, family members or friends go hungry, God made us to reflect this characteristic of His – to hunger and thirst for righteousness.
We are meant to feed on His Word.
Drink deep in His Presence.
Soak in His love.
Our appetites were not meant to settle for anything less than the best He has for us.
“God’s kingdom isn’t a matter of what you put in your stomach, for goodness’ sake. It’s what God does with your life as he sets it right, puts it together, and completes it with joy. Your task is to single-mindedly serve Christ. Do that and you’ll kill two birds with one stone: pleasing the God above you and proving your worth to the people around you.” (Romans 14:17-18 MSG)
Not only will He meet our needs, we will be pleasing Him when we seek Him first and foremost each day, and savor His Word like that freshly brewed cuppa coffee first thing in the morning.
What we eat first sets the tone for our appetites throughout the day.
Join me in inviting His Word to “meat” your deepest needs.
Drink in His Holiness.
Savor spending time in His aromatic Presence.
May His love become the tastiest meal you take in, and never take for granted. The more we eat and drink at His table, the more we will grow into who He designed us to be, and the more His kingdom will be seen in our lives.
