Are You Hungry or Thirsty...

Thought for Thursday...the verse that has been on my mind for a while now is Matthew 5:6 NIV.

"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst 
for righteousness, for they will be filled."

This was the verse I used as the main scripture for my sermon last week and ever since I did
my studying this verse has gotten down deep inside my being.  I don't know that it is so much the 'for they will be filled' part but just the whole hungering and thirsting for righteousness.  In the past 2 weeks I find I have become so hungry for more of God.  I think that is what that verse is talking about...just as our physical body needs sustenance our spiritual body does too!  If we only read our Bible every now and then, if we only pray when we are in need, if we only attend church once in a while...our spiritual man will die of starvation!  Try this...each time you feed your physical body with food or drink, pick up your Bible and read just a verse or two...whisper a prayer of thanksgiving to your Father.  If you do this, you will begin to develop a hunger and thirst for more of God.  It will be may not even realize it at first...but sooner or later it will become a common thing.  Once you find yourself hungering and thirsting after the things of will notice that He is filling you with living water!!  

May you be as blessed and spiritually healthy as I know you will be as you begin feeding your spiritual body as often as you do your physical body!
