TOPIC: HUNGER – A KEY TO INSIGHT
SCRIPTURE: Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Matthew 5:6
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Spiritual hunger is key to spiritual treasures.
It has been confirmed that it is the knowledge of the truth that guarantees the insight that changes life. There are many people who claim to have known the truth but they have not yet interacted with it. If you have not known the truth like the way a man knows his wife, there may be products you may not bring forth.
The question is, what is it that causes a man to know the truth? How do you get to know the truth? How do you access the truth or the Word of God?
Hunger brings insight (Matthew 5:6).
Hunger gives you access to insight. This is not the hunger for physical food but for the Word of God. Hunger for God and His Word is the secret of insight.
Please take note of this: Spiritual hunger is key to spiritual treasure. Every time treasure must be accessed in the spirit, there must be spiritual hunger that gives you access to that treasure.
One reason why we do not have the same realm of access to the Word is because we do not have the same level of hunger. What people are hungry for differs. That is why we do not have the same level of access to spiritual virtues.
Psalm 81:10 says:
I am the Lord thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.
So, your degree of hunger determines your degree of filling – filling with spiritual virtues, etc.
My counsel is, make up your mind to develop a deep hunger for God and His Word to access His treasures.
REMEMBER THIS: Spiritual hunger is key to spiritual treasures.
- Desire a fresh baptism of hunger and passion for God and His Word.
- Make hunger for God your first priority in life.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for Your Word to me today. I receive a fresh baptism of hunger for You, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: When God sets your spirit on fire, you will see yourself ministering with passion, evangelizing with passion, and living your Christian life with passion. Culled from “THOU ART MY BATTLE AXE” by Dr Paul Enenche.
DAILY BIBLE READING: Genesis 11-15.
REFLECTION: When a person has no desire for food, it is either a sign of fullness or a sign of sickness. When people are full of other things but God or are scripturally sick, they lack desire for the Word.
PROPHETIC WORD/DECLARATION: The Lord give you the baptism of Spiritual Hunger in this new year in Jesus’ Name.
