What do you do when hunger pangs take hold of you? You search and search for food until you find it. A person needs to be hungry for Jesus to search Him out in prayer and supplication. Jesus said in Matthew 5:6, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.” Only when you find yourself really hungry for Jesus Christ, is when He will show up.
Jesus displayed the same desires—hunger and thirst for His Father’s will, an eagerness in accomplishing it.
31 Meanwhile the disciples urged Him, “Rabbi, eat something.” 32 But He told them, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.” 33 So the disciples asked one another, “Could someone have brought Him food?” 34 Jesus explained, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to finish His work. -John 4:31-34 BSB
How hungry are you for Jesus? Do you have spiritual hunger pains, for getting closer to Jesus? Sometimes, Jesus will distance Himself from you so that you would acquire hunger pangs for Him—a strong desire for His Word to hear from Him.
Remember, time is fleeting so don’t let it pass you by before it’s too late.
