Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, For they shall be filled. Matthew 5:6 (NKJV)
There is something that I want to ask of you. There is something that I want you to give me. There is something that I will not stop asking of you. What’s that? I want you to fan the flame of my passion for you. I want a hunger and thirst for righteousness to burn white hot in me. I want to be fully devoted to you. I want to be completely on fire for you. I want to shine brightly for you like a star in the universe. I want to be a bold witness for you in the world. I want others to be drawn to you because they will have seen that you are living in and though my life. I want my life to be well used by you. I want you to send me to wherever you want me to go. I want you to ask me to do whatever you want me to do for you. In every way, I want to live my live with and for you. I am your servant. I am at your disposal. That is very good.
Where do you think these desires in your heart have come from? Who do you think has put these requests in your mind? Do you think that these desires of your heart and these requests from your mind originate with you? Well, I can tell you for certain that these desires of my heart and requests of my mind do not come from me. I am certain that all these desires and requests originate with you. That’s right. Why do you think it is important for you to know that both your desires and your requests originate with me? If my desires and my requests originate with you that means it is your will, purpose and plan that I have these desires and requests in my heart and mind. That’s right. If it is my will, purpose and plan that you have these desires and requests what are the chances that I will hear and answer them for you? If you give me a desire, you will grant me a desire. If you give me a request, you will answer my request. Are you sure about that? Yes, I am sure about that. I have no doubt in my heart and mind. That is very good. What will you continue to do with these desires and requests? I will keep on praying them to you. I will keep on asking you to answer them. That will be very good.
Lord, I have this hunger and thirst within me burning like a fire. I am consumed with desire for you. I am filled with passion to live my life with and for you. I want to live the life you have called me to live. I want to go where you guide me to do all you ask of me. Amen
