“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.”
I enjoy reading the be attitudes. This one I really love. I do thirst after righteousness and want to do the will of God. I get on my knees and ask God to keep working in my life and to fill me with his spirit so I will be satisfied.
I know I am a retched human being that needs a savior. He made me to thirst after him and I look forward to the day of sanctification and a new holy body.
Adam and Eve were in the garden and perfectly righteous and yearned only for God. After the fall we have been yearning to get back to that holy existence and what a glory it must have been to be perfect and unashamed in the presence of God almighty.
Today I will meditate upon these scriptures:
Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
Let me follow after you that I may have joy and peace.
As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.
It is a choice I make each day I awake. Serve God or not.
Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
Let me be a peace in what ever state I am in knowing that you suffered and died for me. For that I am grateful.
1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
So heavenly father today let me go about my way today knowing that you love will sustain me. Let me always thirst for your righteousness.
Let your Glory fill me this day.
