He Will Fill Those Who Hunger And Thirst For His Righteousness.....

“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
Matthew 5:6

I know from my own experience, when a person is hungry or thirsty in the natural, they are aware that they have an emptiness that needs to be filled and they will look for opportunities to meet that need. For example...Nothing tastes better than a tall glass of chilled water when you are thirsty or a roasted chicken and "fixens"dinner when you are famished. However, if you try to offer a person an all-you-can-eat buffet after they have just finished eating, then they will probably politely decline.

I think it works the same way in our spiritual life. When we are thirsty for the things of God, all our spiritual senses are open to pursue the things that will quench our thirst. I know in my ministry travels,  I have meet a lot of spiritually hungry people. I believe that this hunger stirs up people's expectations which creates at atmosphere of  faith in the room. I enjoy speaking in these types of meetings the best!

However, being hungry can feel frustrating at times. Instead of feeling the satisfaction of being full, a person is left in a place where they are still longing for more. The longer a person is in that place, the more frustrated they can feel. After all, no one likes to be hungry for long periods of time.

If you can relate to being hungry and thirsty for God, be of good cheer! In today's promise, Jesus deals with this issue of spiritual hunger and promises that our heavenly Father will fill every hungry and thirst heart. If you are hungry for more of God, that is a good indication that you are in a good place! I believe it is God that has created this hunger for more of Him and He promises to fill you to overflowing. Blessed and happy are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness (rightstanding with God), for they shall be filled!
