I do not like to miss a meal and rarely do; when feeling the slightest pangs of hunger, I want something to squelch those empty feelings. "Snickers" candy bar advertisers know our generation's desire for immediate gratification and hope we will choose their product. Candy may satisfy a sweet tooth but it will never replace three square meals.
Do I recognize pangs of hunger for God? Is there the same sense of urgency to fill empty places within my heart as in my tummy? Do I have a consistency of turning to my Lord for three square meals? I not only require regular feedings from his word but also times for communing with the one who spoon-feeds me.
I find a prayer pattern in a Psalm passage. The writer, in a desperate situation reacted wisely; he cried out to God. "But I call to God, and the Lord will save me. I complain and groan morning, noon, and night, and he hears me (Psalm 55:16-17 HCS)." In a crisis, with a sense of urgency he turned to his provider and protector. He chose three square meditations!
