GENUINELY YEARNING FOR GOD

GENUINELY YEARNING FOR GOD Welcome to Divine-Royalty fearless motivation. I discover that many peoples appetite for God is down especially what has resurrected in politics few years back till now that has course many people become a journalist posting things in social media that they don’t know the implications; some has become myopic in church as business and those who serve as Leaders a business men and women. “Though” Am not doubting some but not all. Yearning, hunger and thirst are natural expressions of the basic human desire and need for food and water. One of the clear indicators that something is wrong physically is when we lose our appetite. It is the same spiritually. To hunger and thirst for God is at the very root of our being. It’s the way God made us. When there is no hunger for the presence of God, it is an indicator that something is wrong spiritually. Because that hunger is so basic to human nature, it often finds fulfillment in other areas rather than in seeking God. Much as eating unhealthy food can dull physical appetite, so that which is not of God can dull our spiritual appetite. This happens to non-Christians as they look for happiness and fulfillment in any area except in their relationship with God. It may be in human relationships, quest for power or money, or escape to physical pleasure. The saddest examples, however, are of Christians who allow their appetite for God to be dulled by other things. Even our churches are filled with believers who are so satiated by activities, programs and projects that they no longer have a hunger for God. So many Christians today snack their way through the day on “junk-food” activities and then find they have no time to “feast” with God. We complain about our “busyness” and tiredness, but that is typically a spiritual problem more than a problem of schedule. We desire everything except God. We take God in small doses throughout the day and week and somehow hope that on Sunday we can “catch up” on our time with the Lord. A young bachelor met this beautiful brunette who happens to be working in the same company he was. It was love at first sight for him, Unfortunately, so it was also for the other single men in the building. Instead of giving up, the young bachelor did his homework. He asked her friends what she likes and did not like. He visited her cubicle a few times within the week. When other men sent emails and text messages, he sent handwritten letters. When other suitors brought her to expensive restaurants, he brought her to museums and book readings, which she loved. This young bachelor pursued her with all of his heart. In the end, it paid off. They are now happily married with kids. And he still pursues her till this very day. Imagine if we pursue God the same way? 1 Chronicles 28:9 says, If you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you forsake him, he will reject you forever. That is a promise. We need not give chocolates or flowers. We need not buy expensive jewelry. What God wants from us is a genuine yearning for His presence in our life. Not just in one area but in our entire being. Intimacy with the Lord can only achieved if we spend time with Him and His Word – The Bible. The Word of God is more than just text on a page. It is His love letter to us, His people. Read it. Study it. Meditate on it. Most importantly, memorize it. The Lord wants to be intimate with us. Closer that we could ever be. Will you take the first step and purse God today? Our intimacy with God broadens our influence on earth. Intimacy with God is what determines our exploits. It is not accident that one of the great spiritual disciplines of the Church is to fast. When we fast, we become acutely aware of our physical hunger. That physical hunger can lead to a spiritual hunger as well. Christians today are returning to fasting and prayer as a means of waking us up to our great need for the presence of God. It may be that we will need to fast from other things than food in order to restore our spiritual hunger. There may need to be a slowing of our hectic lifestyles that are crowding out our time with the Father. We may need to fast from some forms of entertainment to devote time to seeking the Lord. Those heavily involved in ministry may need to say “no” to that which is good, in order to seek that which is best. We may even need to reevaluate our family schedules. Self discipline is ability to make a decision and take action. A prayerless soul is a Christless soul. From Motivational Speaker DivineRoyalty

  1. Thanks for your post Divine-Royalty. I’m touched by it. Especially the part pointing to spending a lot of time doing our private businesses or even the work of God but neglecting The Lord’s presence could leads to spiritual starvation. For where does our strength come from? His presence. So a little quality time in His presence is very important.

  2. I like this post, where can I find like and share button. Please kindly provide. Also I think your paragraph had been removed somehow making the post difficult to read. Kindly put them back. Thanks so much. You’re doing a great job.
