Is anyone hungry? Hungry for God, that is.

David was hungry for God: Psalms. 27:4 (KJV) “One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in his temple. In Psalm. 42:1-2 we note: “As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul for thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: When shall I come and appear before God?”

There are many similar verses in the Bible. So, how do we get hungry for God? Well, if you compare it to eating food, if you eat a little of something good, you want more. As you eat it more and more you get so you can’t do without it. It's the same with the presence of God. The more time you spend with him, in his word, prayer and fellowship the more that you want.

We can also pray and ask God to make us hungry. I have heard it said that if you discipline yourself to do something every day for 3 weeks it becomes a habit. Cultivating a hunger for God would be a good habit to have. There’s one good thing about spiritual hunger; you can’t get physically fat by spending too much time with God.
