Hunger is very difficult to ignore. It starts with a feeling that something is lacking, builds into a definite need for food and hits a crescendo of desperately desiring something to eat. We hold our stomach, or gently rub it, in an attempt to sooth the discomfort and quiet the rumbling. It is only a temporary fix; hunger is only satisfied after receiving sufficient food.
Our spirit may not be as easy to discern. Is there a feeling of restlessness or discontent? The problem might not be relationships, job, or financial status. You might be on the verge of starvation. "Happy are you who are hungry now; you will be filled! Happy are you who weep now; you will laugh (Luke 6:21 TEV)."
Wow! Filling is the answer; hunger vanishes when our stomach is full following a satisfying meal. A chemical called serotonin releases to our brain, resulting in a feeling of well being. Feel like something is missing? Receive a fill up to be energized for worship and service. The Lord did not say we might be filled, with certainty those hungry for Him, will be filled.
