Daily Devotion – An Appetite For God

Spiritual Consumption

For the Lamb on the throne will be their Shepherd. He will lead them to springs of life-giving water. And God will wipe every tear from their eyes.” Revelation 7:17 NLT

If you know me, you know I really enjoy eating. The process of determining the menu, sharing the experience with others, and obviously the physical act of consumption.

My appetite is healthy to say the least, and I’m constantly on the search for new cuisines to experience but, I also have some restrictions I abide by.  I don’t eat anything with four legs for example.

Spiritually though it’s been an evolving hunger. The more I seek Jesus, the greater His smorgasbord of revelation and wisdom has become available.

As we grow closer to the Lord, the more we desire to sit at his table of righteousness.  This is because nothing can quench our spirit like His life fulfilling presence.  If we’d stop running around chasing the proverbial snacks of the world and sit with God, there’s a fully prepared meal and seat awaiting our arrival.

There’s a quote I heard that seems to convey this idea: “If you’re not hungry for God, you’re probably full of yourself.”

We can never think we’ve “made it” as Christians. It’s a constant refueling and we can never completely get our fill.  But a life centered on Christ eliminates our thirst for all the temporal things of the world. Be blessed!
