Hunger is a mystery to me; sometimes I try to be hungry but cannot, other times I am famished and thankful for even the smallest morsel. Spiritual hunger is no less a mystery. Today I awake with inward readiness. Even the smallest thing can inspire me when I’m ready to receive. This day is brimming with everything I need for life and godliness. God has saturated every moment beforehand; what noble things await discovery? This is Your day Lord! I am rejoicing in it already. Grant to me good discernment. May Your will dominate every desire, Your presence every step. I am hungry.
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth,”Acts 1:8 ESV. Most people would like to make an impact on the world around them, but it seems so overwhelming. Is it really? An avalanche begins with the movement of one single object; your next move may be the ignition point of something amazing. Inspired ideas launched by passionate commitment and followed by steady advances can change the trajectory of your entire future. I’ve had the privilege of being around quite a few world changers over a lifetime. Some are truly natural stars, but frankly, most are amazingly ordinary; it is their stubborn relentlessness to make something special happen that is the difference. Jesus’ disciples were simple men and women that changed their world. His true disciples still are. Lord, in Your Mercy, move my heart that I may be used to move others.
