And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.” John 6:35

I have been asking myself how to increase my hunger for the Lord for quite some time. As I read, study, pray, and listen to teaching, I hear this thought: We are hungry for God because first, he is hungry for us. I sit and ponder this, and the Lord begins to download these thoughts.

When we realize that our hunger for Him is just a response to His hunger for us, then only can we respond rightly. His choice for us activates our desire to please Him more.

I have prayed for so many years that God help me hunger more for you, but the reality is that my appetite is truly centered on how much I set my heart on him. 

I respond rightly when I know my Papa God and my Identity in Him. He chose me. He calls me His, and He chooses me every day, and He does it over and over again. If I focus on Him, I am hungry but always full, which is truly the fullness of walking with the Lord.
