God says that only those who hunger after righteousness will receive it. God thrusts this heavenly manna on no one. You must desire it, above everything else. Your yearning for God must supersede all other desires. It must be like a gnawing hunger and a burning thirst.
Prayer for the day
Almighty God, my soul is parched and I'm so hungry without the spiritual food You so desire to give me. Take away anything in my life that would cause me not to give You pre-eminence.
