I spent my corporate worship time a few days ago in high praise and the majority of the people that were in the building got lost in the pure praise and worship of the Father. Our lives should be dedicated to his purpose for us. We should want nothing more and that is what this message is about.

Today’s Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father, help us to realize that You have a purpose for us right where we are, whether happy or depressed, secure or frightened, well or ill, going forward or marking time. There is always something for us to learn or something we can do for You Lord. You can use us every day of our lives! Show us how, Lord, show us how. In Jesus’ wonderful name we pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

Hungering for God

God looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God. Psalms 53:2

Last week I was in a conversation with a friend of mine and I invited him to attend a prayer session with me to seek direction for the group that was about to embark on a season of being a blessing in under privileged communities over the next few months. His response was “I really don’t understand why I should come to this. How can I really benefit from coming to this thing?”. At that moment, I realized that I was wasting my time with this man on whom I had invested much throughout his Christian walk. He was often like a roller coaster-up one minute, down the next. “You simply aren’t hungry enough,” I commented to my friend.

Whenever someone must always rationalize and examine whether the things of God are beneficial to them, you know that they are not hungry enough for God. I recall one time when I was in a difficult place. I received an audiotape from a man who gave me some insights into my problem. I was hungry enough to drive to a city 500 miles away just to meet him and find out more. My finances were at a very low point, so it took some real faith to do this. That meeting turned out to be a divine appointment and became a turning point in my life.

God is looking for men and women who hunger to know Him. When we believe that we know all we need to know, we are in a dangerous place. God has placed men and women in the Body of Christ who have had different experiences and gifts that can be helpful in our own spiritual pilgrimages. It requires humility of heart to realize that we can learn from others. We can easily rationalize our business pressures and time commitments to discount such opportunities. I beg you to not lose focus and stay hungry for God.

Quote of the Day

One good man, one man who does not put on his religion once a week with his Sunday coat, but wears it for his working dress, and lets the thought of God grow into him, and through and through him, till everything he says and does becomes religious, that man is worth a thousand sermons — he is a living Gospel — he comes in the spirit and power of Elias — he is the image of God. And men see his good works, and admire them in spite of themselves, and see that they are God-like, and that God’s grace is no dream, but that the Holy Spirit is still among men, and that all nobleness and manliness is His gift, His stamp, His picture: and so they get a glimpse of God again in His saints and heroes, and glorify their Father who is in heaven. ~Charles Kingsley~
