Hungry

“Give me the Love that leads the way

The Faith that nothing can dismay

The Hope no disappointments tire

The Passion that’ll burn like fire

Let me not sink to be a clod

Make me Thy fuel, Flame of God.”

-Amy Carmichael

My prayer to God right now is simple: give me a hunger for Your presence and a passion for You fueled by Your Spirit. I want to go deeper. I want to be filled more. I want to burn for my Jesus.

Last night we watched most of the movie Finger of God. The part of that movie that impacted me the most was the part about the Church in China. The man doing the documentary said that often these Christians, persecuted by their government and prohibited to do what they do, meet and worship for over twelve hours at a time. They meet for hours starting in the middle of the night simply seeking the presence of God, praying for healing, and spreading God’s love and truth everywhere. God is exploding in the Church in China because they have an intense desire and hunger for God’s presence.

Here is the question for myself: what am I hungry for? So often I am hungry to be knowledgeable, effective, well-liked, productive, etc. I don’t want to want that anymore. I want to be hungry for one thing, and one thing only: Jesus. I want more of Him. I want to know Him more profoundly. I want to go deeper, know His love more deeply, and experience the power of Holy Spirit. I want this to be my one desire and my all-consuming passion.

Are you hungry?
