Hunger for Righteousness

I will give to the thirsty the springs of the Water of Life — as a gift! —Revelation 21:6 (TLB)

God says only those who hunger after righteousness will receive it. God thrusts this heavenly manna on no one. You must desire it, above everything else. Your yearning for God must supersede all other desires. It must be like a gnawing hunger and a burning thirst.

Prayer for the day — Almighty God, my soul is parched and I’m so hungry without the spiritual food You so desire to give me. Take away anything in my life that would cause me not to give You pre-eminence.

Today’s reflection is from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. Read a classic Billy Graham message on being in the world but not of it here.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Life on this planet is but a whisper in the scheme of things.
