Being spiritually hungry and thirsty is a good thing, according to the words of Jesus. He said… “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled.” Matthew 5:6
It is a positive thing to be hungry and thirsty spiritually. It is a positive signal from our spirit, that we are lacking and in need of something. We are not simply being discontent.
Jesus said in John 7:37, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink.” Jesus also said in John 4:14, “I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever.” Jesus clearly gives the invitation for us to take action and come to Him when we are spiritually hungry and thirsty. Man nor the world cannot satisfy us in this regard.
We come to Jesus to eat and drink by spending time in His presence, feeding on His Word and by drinking in His Spirit. It is not only spiritually satisfying, it is also spiritually healthy and necessary for us to do so. As we do this for ourselves on a daily basis, we will be healthy and satisfied.
GOD says in His Word,
“Ho! Everyone who thirsts, Come to the waters…come, buy and eat.” (Isaiah 55:1)
So, it is a good thing that we are hungry and thirsty for GOD, and the things of GOD. It is even better if we look to Him and His Word personally to quench our spiritual thirst and fill our empty souls. There is a lot on the spiritual menu of His Word that will satisfy every longing of our hearts today. Let’s eat, drink & be blessed!
Sincerely In Him,
