I want to be like a sponge that can’t absorb enough of what my Father has for me. I pray, “Poppa give me a hunger for Your Word that can’t be satisfied and a thirst that can’t be quenched.” Deuteronomy 8:3 says, “And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every [word] that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.” That tells us how important the Word of God is. His Word gives us instruction for every problem, every obstacle we could ever encounter. It gives us direction, it speaks life in the middle of darkness. “Man doth not live by bread only, but by every [word] that proceeded out of the mouth of the Lord doth man live.” Those words weigh heavy yet so many people don’t even read THE Book that contains the words of life.
“Blessed [are] they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.” Matthew 5:6 Lord, give me that hunger and that thirst. More of You and less of me. Fill my cup over flowing so that it spills out onto every single person I meet. I want Jesus’ light to shine through me so bright it draws all walks of people in. But for Him to use me, I have to replenish myself and feed on His Word. Are you hungry for the Lord? Are you thirsty for His Word? Honestly, I was rushing through life. I was working more than I was living and quickly reading. The Lord wanted more from me, He wants more from you too. Now, I am that sponge. I can’t absorb enough! Finally, I am saying Poppa I am ready for the plans YOU have for me. Fill me up for Your good to spill forth where YOU will. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
