Lunchtime Live with ~*Sister Soldier*~
Star·va·tion: suffering or death caused by hunger.
In this world we get hungry in our natural body. There is a difference in being hungry and starving. When you are hungry you can wait a while and you can make it until Lunch time, or you can wait until you get home from work to eat. You will not die before you eat if you are just hungry, but when you are starving you body has begun to shut down. Your body begins to demand action take place to bring relief to the starvation. Your body takes over your every thought with the extreme need for food or water. What ever you are starving for. People starve for more than just food or drink. Children are known to show out and even adults are known to show out when they are "starved for attention". They long for attention and will do whatever it takes to get it. Even if it leads to a bad result. There are many things that we hunger for or starve for. It is a deep need in the natural that takes over our thoughts and actions with a driving need.
A few nights ago I was driving for Uber and I had two of the Gator players in the car with that were returning from an out of town game. They were both watching interviews that took place after the game on their phones while I drove. The one in the front seat was having small talk with me then he stopped talking and was listening to a video. It was an interview of one of the players. In the interview the player was talking and he said, "it's not about the game to me. It about what you hunger for, and man I am starving for this." As I processed what he said I said out loud to the young men in the car, "Did he just say I'm starving for this?" One of them young men said yes. My whole brain exploded with revelation and I felt the Holy Ghost wash over me as I drove. I said, "wow... Can you imagine if we felt that was about the spiritual things of God?" Before I knew it I was hearing God's voice roll in the back of my mind and I was saying what I was hearing with no regard to the young men's reaction. Then I stopped. I realized they were both staring at me. I said, "oh, I'm sorry. My brain just exploded with God's voice." The young man in the front seat said, "no that is ok. We are believers." I was so blown away by God's voice in that moment. I was starving for his next work and lost track of who was in the car, the fact that I was at work, that I was driving. I stopped at the destination for the young men and realized that God had just given me a sermon. As they exited my car and we said our goodnights I had to pull to the side and capture what God was saying. I had this urgency in my soul to capture every word. Every thing stopped around me as I was drawn into the view of the Holy Ghost and I felt a hunger for His Words flowing through my mind begin and quickly grow stronger. Then I heard him say "Starvation". "What are you starving for?" In the natural we starve for food, water, attention, affection, Love, fame, power, money, but it should be our spirit man that is starving for the things of God. How many this day and age starve for the presence of God? How many actually long for and have that overwhelming desire for the presence of the Holy ghost, and the thing of Heaven? At times our Spirit man longs for and draws us into the presence of God but we shut it down because of where we are or what is going on around us and who we are with. We don't want to offend anyone. But just like in the car, I was starving for the word that was flowing through my mind from the voice of God. I lost track of who was in the car. The Holy Ghost took over and the words were coming out of my mouth before I realized it. These two young men were believers and one said before exiting the car that he needed to hear that. How many times do we suppress the Spirit of God when He starts flowing? We stop that interaction with the Holy Ghost because we get so caught up in the natural. However, this is the time when we should let His spirit flow through us. Just like the young men int eh car, you never know who you might reach or who might need to hear what he is giving you to say. It's time for us to get hungry for the things of God. It is time for us to go even beyond that to starving for the things of God. We must take our focus off the things of this world and focus on the Things of God. The things of this world are temporal. The bible says in 2 Corinthians 4:18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. The things of this world are temporary. We must hunger for the eternal. The Bible says in Matthew 5:6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Do you want to be filled? Do you want the things of God? Do you want the flow of the Holy Ghost in your life? It is time for us to turn our focus from this world to the things of God. So my question to you is this, "What are you starving for?"
Just food for thought...
