I heard this today, “Stay hungry!”
And I was led to Psalm 34:9-10,
“Fear The LORD, you His saints, for those who fear Him lack nothing. Young lions go lacking and hungry, but those who seek The LORD lack no good thing.”
Wow! Who knew that The Fear of The LORD (Reverence for God) and the fulfillment of hunger go together!
Many seek to hear God’s voice in their daily lives. And do you know what? God wants to speak with you even more than you want to hear from Him!
Yes! It’s like when you tell someone “I love you,” and they say,”I love you more!” It is the same with your Heavenly Father!
He LOVES communing with us, more than we can even ask or imagine. He will fill you to overflowing when you are hungry for more of Him!
The Word says that those who fear Him (Reverence and respect Him and seek Him first in their lives) shall be filled and will lack no good thing!
“Beloved. Are you hungry for the deep things of your God?
My Word says that you shall be filled! You are My Lions who lack no good thing! You are the Lions who follow after their Lion King.
You are the Lions who stay close to their Daddy. Seek and you shall find, ask and you shall receive, knock and the door shall be opened.
I give you Grace and Glory. I withhold NO good thing from those who seek Me with all their hearts.
Would an earthly parent withhold food when their little one is hungry? No, Dear One. How much more are you loved by your Abba Father?
I AM a good good Father. It’s Who I AM. I AM your Source. I AM He who gives you nourishment. I AM He who reveals My Secrets.
You and I are One through the Spirit. Blessed are the meek, for you shall inherit the earth.
Blessed are you who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for you shall be filled.
I AM He who satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things. Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the Waters; and you without money, come, buy, and eat!
Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost! Why spend money on that which is not bread, and your labor on that which does not satisfy?
Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, and your soul will delight in the richest of Heavenly Foods.
I will refresh the weary soul and replenish all who are weak. Follow in My Footsteps, Little One. The Paths are dripping with abundance.
With great delight sit in My Shadow, and the fruit of the Spirit shall be sweet to your taste. I brought you to My Banqueting House and My Banner over you is Love. My left hand is under your head, and My right hand embraces you!
Those who hunger and thirst shall be filled. You who seek Me shall always find Me. I AM nearer than the Shade at your right hand.
I AM closer than your next Breath. For you are in Me and I in you. Let your heart reach out to Me today, My Child. Come, Weary One.
I long to fill you, to help you, to lead you on My Path, to care for your every need, to heal every disease, to meet every need, to give you Revelation and to bring you to the Heavenly Realms flowing with Milk and Honey.
I AM He, The Faithful One, King Jesus, the Lion of Judah you seek; I AM Abba Father and you shall lack nothing and i shall give you the desires of your heart.
Come, Beloved, feast on the abundance of My house; forever I will give you drink from My River of Delights!”
HONEY AND MILK : “Honey and milk” were the GLORY of the good land. Honey and milk; words more sweet and comfortable than honey or milk. The change is illustrated in the penitent thief. Contrast Matthew 27:44 with Luke 23:39, etc. It was literally with “one” eye, a sidelong glance of love “better than wine,” that he refreshed Jesus Christ (Solomon 4:9-10). “To-day shalt thou be with Me (compare Solomon 4:8) in Paradise” (Solomon 4:12), is the only joyous sentence of His seven utterances on the cross. ” Your words are honey and milk.” And, it may be further observed, that such a mixture of milk and honey, with poppies in it, was given to the newly married BRIDE, and drank when brought home to her husband ; which was now the case of the church. The doctrines of the Gospel may be meant, comparable to honey and milk; to “honey”, for their sweetness and acceptableness. (©Biblehub Commentaries)
