I hunger, O Lord, for more of you
You gave me a taste of what You can do
Now why does it feel like You withdrew
Your promises tell me that is not true
The more You reveal Yourself to me
The more I want, the more I need
I am never satisfied, I am never appeased
A life without You, I cannot breathe
Forgive me, O Lord, I am so blind
You’ve shown me Your love again and again
I know You are there, it depends on me
Your Word clearly says “I am with you always”
Why would I think that You are gone
You have been with me all life-long
As I look at the beauty of each day
I see Your presence in display
Commentary by Ken Cayce
The greatest gift that we could ever receive is the gift of
eternal life with Jesus. To know we would be separated
from Him for eternity would be more hell than I could bear.
The only life worth living is with Him.
I have found out going through life that if I am
not hungry or thirsty for God there is something
wrong with me spiritually.
Hungering for God is that desire that we have
when we want to get closer to Him, know Him
more, have a closer relationship with Him.
But I find I am never satisfied. The more I long
for Him, the more I yearn for Him, the more I
want. It is like an insatiable thirst.
When I read the Psalms, I see how David had that
same yearning and longing. Forever crying out
God called him “A man after my own heart”.
Hungering, yearning, longing brings action.
God brings joy and contentment but leaves me
You are my God, earnestly I seek you;
I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you,
in a dry and parched land where there is no water.
I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your
power and glory. Because your love is better than
life, my lips will glorify you.
