As the days draw closer to His return I find I want to be even closer to my Father in heaven. Oh, I know I am close now but I feel like I just can’t get close enough. I have this burning desire in my heart for more knowledge of His word and more of His presence.
Have you ever asked for something you really wanted and when you got it you found it only left you wanting more? Well, that is exactly how I feel about our Lord. I asked and prayed for a closer walk and an unquenchable thirst for Him and He definitely answered my prayers, Praise God! The more I learn about Him the more I find I don’t know nearly enough about Him.
My question is does anyone get close enough, I mean really close enough? Is that even possible? The only way I can explain the desire I have in my heart is kind of like if someone was to give me a bite of the best flourless chocolate cake ever and then I found out it was the very last bite. “Oh, boy my taste buds would not be happy!!!” (Can you tell I like flourless chocolate cake) Naturally, I would want more; wouldn’t you? So I’m left with this strong desire to have more, so much so, I can almost taste it. That’s how I feel about God’s word and His presence. It’s that little taste of Glory and my heart is instantly filled with this great anticipation of wanting more. All I can think of is, “Please, Lord come now, I’m ready to be with You now!” I think maybe He only gives me what I can handle in the moment because if He gave me what I think I want, His Glory would be too great to withstand.
His word says;
6You’re blessed when you’ve worked up a good appetite for God. He’s food and drink in the best meal you’ll ever eat. Matthew 5:6 (MSG)
The Lord says this;
Keep on asking and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking and you will find. Keep on knocking and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives. Everyone who seeks finds. And to everyone who knocks the door will be opened. Matthew 7:7-8 (NLT)
For now, I will keep asking and waiting to be fed by my Lord and King. So instead of trying to eat more cake(figuratively speaking that is) to satisfy my immediate desire I will wait on Him to feed me, for He knows the appetite of my heart. Amen!
So tell me how’s your appetite, and what do you want more of?
