True Happiness in Spiritual Hunger (Morning)
Proverbs 2:4-5 If you seek her as silver, And search for her as for hidden treasures; Then you will understand the fear of the LORD, And find the knowledge of God.
When his friends shared their dreams, Robyn just listened to them. One of his friends wanted to be the most well-known doctor, one shared his dream to become a wealthy merchant. He just listened to all of them. Robyn has his dream but he never says it out loud. He wants to invite the king and the queen to his house and entertain them. After he knew the king has an eye for art and craftsmanship, he started to study hard and practice.
Time goes by and little Robyn becomes an adult but he still shared his childhood dream. When he learned the king was inspecting his realm and planning to visit his village, he ran and greeted them. He invited the king into his humble dwelling, enjoying his paintings and entertaining the king. To his surprise, the king accepted. It was the best day of his life.
When someone has an indescribable thirst for something, they will put their entire focus, resources, and experience to achieve it. If we have the same thirst for God we will do the same, looking for Him, and want to please Him whatever it takes until He resides in our hearts. Even though He is an all-powerful God He cannot force His way into our hearts. We must let Him in. And because His epithet is Prince of Peace, His presence in our hearts would induce peace and bliss as well.
You can achieve TRUE HAPPINESS if there’s INSATIABLE THIRST FOR GOD within you.
1. Do you have an insatiable thirst for God within you?
2. In your opinion, why must we have an insatiable thirst for His rhema within us to achieve true bliss and happiness?
3. What are your commitments to have an insatiable thirst for God? Share it with your cell group.
“Good Father, we want to have an insatiable thirst for Holy Spirit even more. We invite you and we want to enthrone you inside our hearts. Let our hearts be filled with happiness from You and You alone. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.”
