HUNGER FOR GOD

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” – Hebrews 11:1

Faith is stronger than belief. To believe is to give intellectual assent; to have faith is to be inseparable from the object of your devotion. Belief can be changed or lost by a more persuasive argument. True faith is so much a part of the person it can only be taken by death.
A poverty of soul must eternally torment that man who is satisfied merely to reason about eternal life, while remaining without the real possession and power of the indwelling Son of God manifest in his daily experience.

If we are always reasoning, then we cannot cultivate the silence in which God speaks.
The Lord wants to fill us with a holy desperation and a holy violence to lay hold of Him. It’s a hunger that will drive us into holy romance with the Lord — to enthrone Him in every area of our lives — it’s a fresh hunger to come into such intimacy with Jesus that we die to ourselves and come into holy union with Him in every way.

Hunger for God is one of the greatest signs of life a person can have. We must press past intellectual awareness to hunger for heartfelt encounters that change and transform.

“O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee; my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is.” – Psalm 63:1

We are to live in the very Glory of God. However, we must daily overcome the spirit of the world and press behind the veil that is already torn that we might eat of the Bread of Heaven and look upon the blueprints of heaven.
