Life Principles: The Hungry Always Get Fed!

August 18, 2012

The following excerpts are from the book;
Pages 47-49
Heidi and Rolland are two of the people that I look up to the most! What they do, the way they think, the way they love...I want to be like that when I grow up!
I read these pages this morning and they knocked my socks off.

"There is no "Well, if we get it, we get it;if we don't we don't..." What ever God wants to do is okay with me," we say. "I'm here if He wants to show up." Yet, there is something about the person with an all-consuming desperation for Jesus that touches His heart....
"Once a minister prayed for me and God really touched me. Our backgrounds and experiences were so different it made my head spin. ...I didn't care about the package. the package can upset you.But who cares about the package? We must go for what ever God has for us, because we know it will always be good." ...
" The ones who are hungry get fed. The ones who are thirsty get to drink. It is as simple as that. Spiritually speaking, most believers in the west live on junk food: cotton candy, Diet Coke, Twinkies. this is all they ever eat yet they complain that they are tired."...
"We need constantly to eat of Jesus. We need to drink of Him."...
"The greatest trap is thinking we have to pay for God's blessing with our Spiritual discipline."...
"Become so intimate with Jesus, so full of Him, that it does not matter what challenges in life present themselves to you. You will be so spiritually full that you can feed a multitude of other people's needs. Jesus will give you more than enough!"

Wow! I am so challenged by all of this!
That's all I can really say!



“Ho! Every one who thirsts, come to the waters;
And you who have no [a]money come, buy and eat.
Come, buy wine and milk
Without money and without cost.
“Why do you [b]spend money for what is not bread,
And your wages for what does not satisfy?
Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good,
And delight yourself in abundance.
“ Incline your ear and come to Me.
Listen, that [c]you may live;
And I will make an everlasting covenant with you,
According to the faithful mercies [d]shown to David.
“Behold, I have made him a witness to the peoples,
leader and commander for the peoples.
 “Behold, you will call a nation you do not know,
And a nation which knows you not will run to you,
Because of the Lord your God, even the Holy One of Israel;
For He has glorified you.”
 Seek the Lord while He may be found;
Call upon Him while He is near.
 Let the wicked forsake his way
And the unrighteous man his thoughts;
And let him return to the Lord,
And He will have compassion on him,
And to our God,
For He will abundantly pardon.
 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord.
 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways
And My thoughts than your thoughts.
 “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven,
And do not return there without watering the earth
And making it bear and sprout,
And furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater;
 So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth;
It will not return to Me empty,
Without accomplishing what I desire,
And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.
 “For you will go out with joy
And be led forth with peace;
The mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you,
And all the trees of the field will clap their hands.
 “Instead of the thorn bush the cypress will come up,
And instead of the nettle the myrtle will come up,
And [e]it will be a [f] memorial to the Lord,
For an everlasting sign which will not be cut off.”

Isaiah 55

Bless you today and for the rest of the week!
