“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.”
“As a deer pants for flowing streams, so pants my soul for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God?”
Do we truly hunger and thirst for Jesus who is our Righteousness? If we do, we are blessed! What a wonderful promise. He justified us on the cross by taking our sin and giving us His Righteousness. Then He gave us His Spirit to enable us to live righteously and soon He will return and make all creation new! A hunger and thirst for righteousness is a hunger and thirst for Jesus.
Prayer: Father give me a hunger and thirst for you alone today. I run to you for all my needs. Draw me closer to You. Let me dine with you at your table where no one ever goes away hungry. Fill me with what I really need and not what the world says I need. Thank you for your constant provision in my life. Amen.
