Are You Hungry for God?

February 3, 2014

“We must get to the place where we are desperate for God again.”[1]

As I was reading the book Jentezen Franklin is famous for, I came across this quote. It has stuck with me for a few days. Have we really come to a place where we are absent from the need for God? Have we really become that arrogant or forgetful? I think we have.

As we go through our day we look at things through the pronouns of “I” and “me.” We no longer yearn for God to be an intimate part of our lives. We make sure we read our Bible, devotional, and favorite blogs. Yet we forget why we started these endeavors – we started them because we wanted to get closer to God. We wanted to be closer to Him than we ever imagined. Yet, we have turned these wonderful and healthy practices into a checklist to complete instead of places to meet God.

This week get desperate for God again. Realize how empty tasks have become without Him. Reach out for him again. Make these things about growing close again.
