Cultivating A Divine Appetite

Unlike physical hunger, our appetite for God is endless. Once you’ve satisfied your physical hunger you no longer want to eat. In fact, the sight, smell, or even the thought of food can almost make you sick after you’ve eaten your fill.

But the opposite is true of our yappetite for God. The very act of satisfying it intensifies it. That’s precisely why Scripture tells us to: “Taste and see that the Lord is good.” To come to His banquet table.

Experience for yourself that He satisfies completely. And when you do, something wonderful and life changing will happen: you’ll find yourself wanting more of Him, and less of what you’ve been using as a cheap substitute for Him. 

It all starts with surrender . . . surrender to the fact that you’re not God—He is. And His ways aren’t our ways. And trust Him every day—that He knows what He’s doing.
