An Appetite for God

“Blessed [joyful, nourished by God’s goodness] are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness [those who actively seek right standing with God], for they will be [completely] satisfied.” Matthew 5:6, Amplified Bible

When my children become sick, the first thing they lose is their appetite. I could sit in front of them their favorite meal and they will refuse it. So I let them rest until they feel better. When they come to me saying, “I’m ready to eat now”, I know they are healed.

Have you lost your appetite for the things of God? Do you no longer desire to read His Word or be in His presence? Is there no great desire to be around His people or do the spiritual things you used to? It could be the cares of life have distracted you or that your heart is hurting. Has anything damaged your heart and mind? Has anything polluted your faith? Have you just come through a terrible experience? There’s no judgement or condemnation here—only sincere love. The goal is to help you examine where you are spiritually. If you are hurting, forgive those who have offended you and receive God’s immense love. Receive His healing hand over your heart and let Him reach into every hurting place. If you are distracted, ask God to refocus and reignite you.

A deep longing for the things of God can’t be manufactured. God gives us a thirst and hunger for Him, and we can come to Him saying, God I’m ready to eat now! I want more of You now! I’m ready to win souls now, and fulfill Your divine purpose for my life now!

Prayer: Thank You Lord. I need You to heal me and refocus me. Touch my heart and heal every pain. Every disappointment. Heal me and give me my appetite back. Cause me to thirst for You like never before. Help me, God. I forgive everyone and everything. I receive a greater desire for You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Hebrews 13:21; 1 Peter 2:2; Psalms 63:1-2)

  10. This is so relatable for me. My girls and I have been through a hard time the last few years after leaving a bad marriage. Though I feel I forgive, I’m still wounded and so are they. Though I listen to the local Christian radio station daily, I have not opened my Bible in a while. I go to church every Sunday, but I teach Sunday school, so I don’t get to hear the word. It leaves me feeling distant from God.
