An Encouraging Word

 

 

 
 

ARE YOU AVAILABLE?


"Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness for they shall be filled."  Matthew 5:6


Desire is something that comes from the inside. My question for you today is, do you really want what the Lord has for you?  If so, it's available; are you?  


Our scripture today is a part of the "sermon on the mount" where Jesus is speaking to His disciples.  I believe that sometimes we can become comfortable in our pursuit of Jesus Christ; almost as if everything is going to just come automatically; however, we must never forget, it is a privilege to pursue Him.  We must hunger and thirst after Him.  


Where does desire come from?  I believe as believers we must ask the Lord for a greater hunger.  We must also position ourselves through an intentional seeking of Him.  We must not go after things, but Jesus.  If I receive Him, He will supply my every need.  


As we push aside our daily tasks and press into His presence, I pray for a genuine move of God.  Some of the things that we have been battling will not be moved until we hunger and thirst for Him. You see those struggles, situations, and circumstances were designed to get your attention so that you may be filled with Him. However, it is not enough to simply say you want Him or more of Him, you must move towards Him.    


Righteousness in scripture is simply defined as God's way...  the state of being and doing it God's way.  What do you need to do God's way?  Whatever it is, allow Him to be your #1 pursuit.  When we pursue Jesus Christ we will become who He wants us to be and we will be filled (empowered) to do His will (righteousness).  


Are you available? 


"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; To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary."  Psalms 63:1-2
