"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled." Matthew 5:6

Sometimes we can take our relationship with God for granted and become too casual in our walk with God. Yet the blessing comes to those who hunger and thirst for righteousness. In Jeremiah 29:13 God tells that, "You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." Hungering and thirsting is an ongoing attitude of the heart that says, "I am determined to do whatever it takes to be the person God wants me to be."

Paul writes in Philippians 3:12, "But I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me." Paul was prepared to put in the time and effort to be the person God wanted him to be.

In Genesis 32:26 we read that Jacob wrestled all night with God and then said, "I will not let you go unless you bless me." Are we that desperate for God's blessing in our lives? From that time on Jacob walked with a limp which was a constant reminder that God had touched his life.

During the Olympics commentators often used the expression that a competitor was 'hungry for gold'. If an athlete can be that focused and committed for something that is temporal how much more should we be hungering and thirsting so God can fulfil His purposes for our life.
