This is a new thing I am going to do. I will be jotting down thoughts that I have had for the day. There are thoughts that I know I should share but I don’t because I don’t have an avenue to do it, but that changes from today. Hope you enjoy them and I hope they inspire you!!!!!
The full man has no use for honey, but to the man in need of food every bitter thing is sweet. Proverbs 27:7
Principle: The word is showing us how important it is to live a life that is hungry. Hungry to grow, and hungry to learn. Once you get to a place that says, I have arrived you are in trouble! The full man will turn down even the best opportunities because he is “full”!!! Are you “full”?
When you are hungry you will begin to see things other people don’t normally see. When you are hungry you will do things that seem out of the ordinary to other people. When you are hungry nothing can stop you from reaching your goal…..
Which person do you want to be like, the man who is full or the hungry person? The decision is all yours…..!
How hungry are you for God? How desperate are you for Him? Are you as desperate as Jacob was? He was sleeping alone and about to meet his brother Esau. This is what the word says:
And Jacob was left alone, and a Man wrestled with him until daybreak.
And when [the Man] saw that He did not prevail against [Jacob], He touched the hollow of his thigh; and Jacob’s thigh was put out of joint as he wrestled with Him.
Then He said, Let Me go, for day is breaking. But [Jacob] said, I will not let You go unless You declare a blessing upon me.
Genesis 32: 24-26
Jacob was desperate for a blessing and he fought with everything within him. He would not let go at any cost. Even after his thigh was put out of joint, Jacob never let go. He was desperate.
Can your desperation match Jacob’s?
But I have realised something. We ask for more of God but we don’t put any action to our prayer. We ask for more of God and just keep on sitting down expecting sparks and fireworks!! We ask for more of God but don’t pray more. We ask for more of God but we don’t read our bibles more. Instead we just sit there. We don’t change what we watch. We don’t change how we speak. We just keep on living the same way we did before we prayed! Are our actions sending the right signals?
I was in this boat sometime ago. I would pray and pray for more of God but really not change anything.
People of old were wiling to give their lives for more of God. They were desperate for God and they showed it through their actions. And they are our models today.
We need God and we love Him desperately so let us show Him through our actions.
