- Don’t be ashamed to publicly identify with God. Like David we must declare, “O God, thou are my God!” and decide that we’d rather have His favor than man’s popularity. Making yourself known as a Christian will bring discomfort, but that’s why God sent the Holy Spirit to be our Comforter!
- Seek God early: early in priority, and early in the day. This is really the key of the whole thing. David declared, “Early will I seek thee.” Seeking God cannot be a part-time or passing-thought kind of task. You must discipline yourself to keep God’s Word in your heart all day long, and to communicate with Him constantly. No relationship can work where one party refuses to listen or to talk.
- Realize that this world is a spiritual desert. You live in a world that really has nothing to do with the things of God. Everyone is looking out for “number one” in the world. You will find no spiritual nutrition in Kelly Clarkson, Dr. Phil or O’Reilly. Without a healthy relationship with God, you’ll go through life spiritually anorexic at best.
- Desire to see God work in your life like He has worked in others’. When you see people getting right with God and excited about the things of God, determine that you want that for yourself. Revival starts in your heart.
Once you finally have a craving for God, you’ll find that God delights in satisfying that craving. “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.” – Matthew 5:6
It’s time to get hungry for the things of God.
