Topic: Longings of the Soul [October 6, 2016]
Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness; for they shall be filled. - Matthew 5:6
It has been my privilege to know what it means to walk in the way of Christ. What a thrilling, joyous experience it is to wake up every morning and know His presence in the room! What a thrilling, joyous experience it is to know in the evening, when the sun is setting, the peace of God as you go to bed and to sleep, and to sleep the sleep of only those who know Christ! What a joy it is to walk in the eternal and permanent experience of Christ!
Do you hunger for such a walk? Do you long for such joy, peace, contentment, abandonment, and adventure in your own soul? If this is your hunger and desire, then God will do exactly what He has promised to do: He will fill you. Every promise God has ever made, He has kept-or will keep.
Prayer for the day: Thank You, Lord, for the promise of filling my life with Your love.
