This isn’t about a literal fight for hunger. This is about a FIGHT for a deeper hunger. The FIGHT for desperation and full reliance on God. The FIGHT to continue to long for more of Him and His word. It’s something that we sometimes completely disregard. The FIGHT is one day at a time of us saying “yes”to looking to Him. It’s a glorious combination of marvelously simple devotion and wholehearted obedience.
Psalm 110:3 “Your troops will be willing on your day of battle. Arrayed in holy splendor, your young men (and women) will come to you like dew from the morning’s womb”
He wants to rule and fight in partnership with His Bride (you and me). In order to have a shining light wherever you are in the world, you must have burning heart. A heart alive and in need of something more than just oxygen. If you have ever made a fire, you will know that it takes more than just oxygen in order to spark a flame. And once the spark has grown to a steady glow, it takes constant attention in order to keep it alive. This is similar to what how must fight for our spiritual hunger. We must continually be adding to the flame that The Lord has set inside of us. It takes effort to stay hungry for Him and His will.
Romans 12:11 “Never let the fire in your heart go out. Keep it alive. Serve the Lord.”
