A newborn baby knows when she is hungry! She knows what she needs and nothing will stop her screaming until she gets her milk!
We have much to learn from babies.
Like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to your salvation, if you have tasted the kindness of the Lord. I Peter 2:2-3
Like babies, we, too, are hungry. But sadly, we don’t recognize our hunger for what it really is. We reach for things that fail to satisfy.
Only God Himself can satisfy our deepest hunger. People will disappoint. Things will disappoint. But God will never disappoint! I Peter 2:6
Let me ask you a couple of questions:
- Do you know you are hungry? What void are you trying to fill? What emptiness are you feeling?
- What are you doing to satisfy your hunger? Are you filling it with activity? food? drugs? alcohol? work? things? kids? spouse? friends? fun? busyness?
Let me encourage you to start satisfying your heart hunger in a real way.
- Tell God you are hungry. Tell him what you lack. What do you need?
- Taste the kindness of the Lord. Spend time reading His Word. Don’t read for the sake or reading, but as you read ask God to show you truths that will satisfy your innermost needs.
I guarantee you that once you taste God’s kindness, you will keep going back to Him for more!
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. Matthew 5:6
