Crave Him

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE:

Blessed and favored by God are those who keep His testimonies, and who [consistently] seek Him and long for Him with all their heart.
(Psalm 119:2, AMP)

TODAY’S WORD:

Oftentimes when we hear the word “crave,” we think about food cravings. Cravings can be triggered by just about anything. You may see an advertisement of your favorite burger or hear someone mention ice cream, and it produces an image in your mind. You replay that image over and over again until you have to get in your car and seek that thing you are craving! Your spiritual cravings work the same way. When you focus on God and meditate on His Word, it starts to change your desires. Spiritual hunger for Him will grow and develop into a craving until you actually have to stop everything else in order to seek Him! If you feel spiritually hungry, take a step of faith and begin to focus your heart more on God and His Word. When you seek Him with your whole heart, you will find Him.

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are they who keep His testimonies, and who seek, inquire for and of Him and crave Him with a whole heart.
