a Hunger for God

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

A while ago I meant to write up this blog, but I didn't. I've been slacking in the spiritual department. You know, reading, getting into His Word. But this was profound for me...so I wanted to share.

I accidentally read the wrong Proverbs one morning, but God totally used it.
"The Lord does not let the righteous go hungry (famished), but he thwarts the craving of the wicked." Prov 10:3

And then some cross references were Matt 6:33 "But seek first his kingdom & his righteousness, and all these things will be given you as well." And Ps 34:10 "The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing." I was convicted this morning as I was thinking about how "hungry" I was. Then to be reminded that we are indeed-made to crave God. When I seek his righteousness, only then will I be satisfied.

Of other interesting note-the word "Seek" in Matthew means to "Crave." Zeteo. I think it also seems like an awesome name for a child.

No, no kid on the way. Just a reminder- I can't get pregnant for a year post surgery otherwise there runs a huge risk factor of complications with development (the bone morphogenic protein they used in my jaw has caused bone deformities in rabbit fetuses within a year of use).

Just sharing.

    Oh, I love when that happens - we read the "wrong" scripture, and EUREKA - God speaks to us clear and true.

    There's a little boy in our church named Zeo... or that's what they call him. Hmmmmmm - I wonder if he is really a "Zeteo"? I agree with you it is a COOL name!

    Isn't' it something when we receive a blessing after reading the "wrong" scripture? I, too, am on a journey to read more, pray more, and to be more thankful every day. Zeteo would certainly be a nice name for a child.
