Satisfied by Righteousness

By   •   October 10   •   Topics: ,

Man hungers for food, and God sends the sun and rain upon the golden fields of grain. The grain is made into flour, and flour into bread, and man’s physical hunger is satisfied. Man hungers for love; and God ignites the fire of affection in another heart, and two hearts are made complete in the bonds of holy matrimony.

Man hungers for knowledge, and God raises up institutions of learning, calls men to be instructors, puts it into the hearts of the rich to endow them; and men are satisfied in their thirst for knowledge. Man hungers for fellowship; and God allows him to build cities where men can share their industry, and their knowledge, and their skills.

Don’t tell me that God can supply man with an abundance of everything material and yet will let him starve spiritually! . . . God will satisfy the hunger and thirst of those who desire His righteousness because He loves the world with an undying affection.

Prayer for the day

You have abundantly supplied my greatest need, heavenly Father, for You have given me love.

    I thank you so much for these messages of hope and faith and justice! To show that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to good! I have listened to the messages of the videos—and the readings of this past week—and forwarded them to a good friend. As a retired teacher, coach and veteran, I need to again have this structure of what being a committed Christian is! And that good is good and evil is evil! I cherish these. Thank you so much! Sincerely, Jon Thostenson

    Love is what that made us and it was love that saved us. The Bible is a love book. The love of God for us. John 3:16. Help us Lord to share this same love of yours with others. There are so many in this world who still have to know this love. Help us to love others …. a kind word. …. a helping hand. Glory to you God our ABBA Father. Amen

    Thank God at the highest level for all things. He supplies us daily , with both foods. First food is spiritual, second food is physical. We need both to survive and grow . Thank you so much Lord for your incredible Grace, Love, Forgiveness and Mercy, each and every day. What an extraordinary privilege it is to be a member of your family… and forever
