Word for Today
“Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled” (Matthew 5:6).
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness. This teaching is from the greatest teacher who ever lived on earth, our Lord Jesus Christ.
There are many people who want to be wealthy both within the church and outside the church, but they are going about it the wrong way. True riches and wealth is a blessing from the Lord ( Proverbs 10:22), not just by hard work, though hard work is important.
Total obedience to the Word of God is vital to our being blessed. Many people are not committed to the Word. Some people seem committed but just for a season. Be consistent. The scriptures cannot be broken. The Word of God cannot deny Himself. Henceforth, ask God for the grace to be hungry & thirsty for the word of God and watch God in action in your life.
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33).
Father, please multiply in me, the grace to be hungry and thirsty for your word, every second of my life in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.
