Desperate for the Presence of God
Desperation for the presence of God.
I feel like this has become almost offensive to talk about in some circles.
“He’s always with you.”
“Why are you asking for Him to come? He’s already here.”
Now, I believe the Bible, and I believe the Bible makes it clear that these realities and statements are true.
I’ve said them and continue to say them both on and off the platform.
But you cannot negate the other reality the Bible talks a lot about.

Hunger and desperation for God aren’t negative.
They are a gift.
The Bible actually says you are BLESSED if you hunger.
If you’re actually desiring His presence today, that’s a sign that the Holy Spirit (who never leaves you) is at work in you.
Don’t run from it. Don’t just try and declare your way out of it.
Embrace it. Let it lead you to Him. Let it lead you to LOVE.
Faith ⬅️➕➡️ Desperate Hunger.
We’re called to walk in and hold both of these realities not as conflicting views, but as a harmonious symphony that is the Christian walk.
Would love to hear if you can relate to this post.
