Life Change Happens Now: 21 Days Devoted Day 7

DAY 7 OF 21
SUNDAY, JANUARY 21st, 2024
Psalms 107: 8-9, Psalms 63:1, Psalms 34:8, Jeremiah 29:13, Ephesians 4: 15-16
As we seek God first we hunger for more of His presence in our lives. When we think of hunger it is easy to think of food (it’s easy because Pastor Jarrod mentions it in every message…HaHa!) The truth is we all have desires and necessities in this life. Yes, we have physical hunger but also emotional, intellectual, and spiritual hunger. As Jesus walked the earth, he often described Himself as the "bread of life" telling His people that, "whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty". Jesus meets all of our needs. As with any relationship, our relationship with Jesus is a choice, and the desire to pursue a relationship is intentional. With the help of prayer and the Holy Spirit, we progress in our relationship with Jesus by finding our satisfaction in Him. We should not grow stagnant in our relationship as there is always more of God to know, to love, and to experience. The Bible says when we seek God wholeheartedly, we will find Him. So today we ask for more of Him and stand on the promise that he will meet us in our desire. By continuing to hunger after more of the Lord we build our relationship with Jesus and choose to pursue life with Him day after day.
Put It Into Practice
  • What is one practical step you can take to increase your spiritual hunger for the Lord?
  • How can walking in a Godly community help cultivate and grow your spiritual hunger?
Lord, I need You. Help me never forget that all my needs are satisfied by You and You alone. I pray that today, that there is a stirring for a new desire and hunger for You. A new hunger for purity, love, patience, generosity, and service. Today, I chose to invest in this relationship to grow with You and to learn more about Your goodness and faithfulness. God, I pray to experience more of You. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen!
