It’s Good To Be A Hungry Soul

God satisfies the hunger of our soul.

God fills the longing in our soul.

There are people who will take their five talents and make five more and people who will bury it in the ground and do nothing with it. For the ones who want to invest, to find more of what they’ve been give, God has promise. For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness. (Ps 107:9)

When you choose to be hungry for the things of God, He promises to fill you with everything that will satisfy your soul. Now consider that. What does it feel like to ┬áhave a satisfied soul? It’s almost too good to be true, but it’s not.

God has a bottomless well from which to draw from, and every outpouring is more than we can take in. We are filled up with His goodness, but then something else happens. We get hungry again. It’s the only time we’re allowed to be greedy. He loves it when we ask for more.

Every time you go to Him with a longing in your soul to know Him more, He will fill you. But don’t be surprised if what you get is not what you expected. He knows how to surprise and delight. Stay hungry, my friends. There’s an unlimited capacity in your soul to take in more.
