And not for burgers or chocolate or pizza.
Nor for lentil loaf, baked fish, or pink grapefruit.
I am hungry for more of the Lord. More of Jesus. More of God's presence in my life. More of the filling of the Holy Spirit. Only God can really satisfy.
Humankind is naturally spiritual - and if we don't fill that with with the spirit of the living God who made us, we're going to try to fill that emptiness with all manner of other things. Including food. But we can eat and eat and never really be satisfied, because the spirit knows something is missing.
The great thing about recognizing this, is that at the same time He fills, you hunger for more of Him - but it's GOOD. It leads to LIFE, ABUNDANT life. And you don't have to feel guilty about "eating too much" spiritual food!
"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled."(Matt. 5:6) www.youtube.com/watch?v=
