OUR DAILY BREAD
This morning I woke up thinking about my weight, my health, my organizational skills, the need to study God's word more, etc. etc. etc.
Basically... I was focused on ME! While working on my homework for a study we are doing at church called "Radical". My heart began to switch over to Godly desires.
Shouldn't I wake hungry for what is truly my daily bread. Shouldn't I hunger and thirst after the Lord.
Amos 8:11 says:
Behold, days are coming,” declares the Lord GOD,
When I will send a famine on the land,
Not a famine for bread or a thirst for water,
But rather for hearing the words of the LORD.
Isn't this what goes on in our flesh at times. We fill up our mind with our own thoughts, wishes and desires when all he requires is our complete submission and surrender to his word!
When my heart submits to his word, its amazing how my thoughts line up as well. Today I desire the bread of life vs the bread of this world!
