2 Chronicles 15:2 And he went out to meet Asa and said to him, Hear me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin: the Lord is with you while you are with Him. If you seek Him [inquiring for and of Him, craving Him as your soul’s first necessity], He will be found by you; but if you [become indifferent and] forsake Him, He will forsake you.
You know this Christian walk works when we delight ourselves in the Lord. When we crave Him.
It can be so easy to be indifferent, to be cold and complacent in our relationship with Him. And after a while you find not only do you not think about Jesus but you don't look for or seek Him.You are alone you are cut off.
But you can be so in love with Jesus: He becomes your first soul necessity. Your everything.
You wake up in the morning and you crave Jesus. You find yourself gossiping about Jesus without intention in the day. You get home from work and you can't wait to spend some alone time in worship and the Word.
You can be so hungry, so thirsty to spend time with Him. Holy cravings have taken over your life. When nothing but Jesus will do.
Where you just can't get enough of the bible. Where you just sing, and dance, and enjoy His presence. Holy Cravings.
Holy passion. Holy Cravings.
Are you Craving other things bad for you? It's because you are lacking time with Him. You are made for relationship with Him. Nothing good for you will ever replace time with Jesus.
Is He still your souls first necessity?
Keep hungering, keep craving Jesus...and you will find Him.
Father I have lost my passion, my hungering for You. It's not like it was. Holy Spirit give me today fresh cravings, fresh desire to seek You. Restore to me my Holy Cravings, my passion in Jesus' Name, Amen.
