I have noticed this in other areas of my life. I will find myself flipping through the TV channels. Not in the mood for romance, history, comedy or drama I keep going. Finally I land on some show and when it ends the restlessness comes back. I begin the tour of channels once again. I am still hungry.
Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life according to your word. Psalm 119:37
I begin to take an quick evaluation. When did I last really devote some time to God? I know it is what I need to do, not later but now. I flip on the TV again and waste a few more minutes. I then feel a little pull in my heart to go and seek out the only one who can fill me with peace. I get my favorite bible and pull out my one year guide and find the selected passage. A twinge of guilt hits as I note the days I have missed. I take the thought captive by confessing God's love for me. I read and pray and my peace returns and my hunger is filled.
...As the deer pants for the water brooks, So my soul pants for You, O God. Psalm 42:1
We think we can live a life that is satisfiying without God's direction in it. As long as everyone is healthy, money is in the bank and food is on the table we can get pretty comfortable with just religion but we need a relationship. That only that comes from a commitment to the Lord.
'I will give them a heart to know Me, for I am the LORD; and they will be My people, and I will be their God, for they will return to Me with their whole heart.--Jeremiah 24:7
Feed your hunger, go after God.
