Is there a note of despair in your heart?
Have you not obtained what your soul covets? Have you desired to be like that sinless, sickless One? God will answer the call of your heart, and you shall have your heart’s desire. But before that call becomes answerable, it must be the paramount call of your being. It is when it becomes the paramount issue of the soul that the answer comes. Jesus knew. That is the reason He said, "Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled."
There is not a doubt about it. All the barriers of your nature will go down before the desire of the soul. All the obstacles that ever were will disappear before the desire of your soul. All the diseases that ever existed in your life will disappear before the desire of your soul, when that desire becomes the one great purpose and prayer of your heart.
Oh, if I had one gift, or one desire that I would bestow on you, more than all others, I would bestow upon you the hunger for God.
"Blessed are they which do hunger." Hunger is the best thing that ever came into a man's life. Hunger is hard to endure; it is the call of the nature for something that you do not possess. The thing that will satisfy the demands of the nature and the hunger of a man's soul is the call of his nature for the Spirit of life to generate the abundant love of God in Him.
--John G Lake
You, Lord Jesus, are my righteousness. Fill the hunger for righteousness in my life. Amen.
