The Sauce: Seek First
DAY 8 OF 21
Spiritual Growth and Hunger
As we seek God first, we hunger for more of His presence in our lives. When we think of hunger, it is easy to think of food. The truth is we all have desires and necessities in this life. Yes, we have physical and emotional, intellectual, and spiritual hunger. As Jesus walked the earth, he often described Himself as the "bread of life," telling His people that "whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty." Jesus meets all of our needs. As with any relationship, our relationship with Jesus is a choice, and the desire to pursue a relationship is intentional. With the help of prayer and the Holy Spirit, we progress in our relationship with Jesus by finding our satisfaction in Him. We do not grow stagnant in our relationship, as there is always more of God to know, love, and experience. It can be tempting, when we are satisfied with our relationship with Jesus, to believe the lie that we do not need more of His presence in our lives. The Bible says when we seek God wholeheartedly, we will find Him. So today, we ask for more of Him and stand on the promise that he will meet us in our desire. By continuing to hunger for more of the Lord, we build our relationship with Jesus and pursue life with Him daily.
- What practical step can you take to increase your spiritual hunger for the Lord?
- What has God taught you about spiritual hunger?
- How can walking in a Godly community help cultivate and grow your spiritual hunger?
Lord, I need you. Help me never forget that all my needs are satisfied by you and you alone. I repent for times when I sought fulfillment outside of you. I pray that today, you stir a new desire and hunger for you—a new hunger for purity, love, patience, generosity, and service. Today, I chose to invest in this relationship to grow with you and to learn more about your goodness and faithfulness. God, I pray to experience more of you. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen!
