Beatitudes for Dummies #2

“Developing a good appetite”

 

 

Matt 5:6

 

Luke 6:17-21a

 

There is a big difference between being filled and being satisfied.

 

Hunger and cravings are closely associated but hunger is a

normal function and cravings are a taught behavior.

 

Psalm 10:1-4

 

How to create a greater appetite for God

 

1.    Seek God, by letting your thoughts be about Him.

 

2.    Give attention to the right things (Righteousness)

 

Proverbs 4:20-27

 

3.    Know how cravings work.

 

What I give my attention too, my spirit will desire, what I desire I will have a craving for it.

 

What my eye sees, my heart can conceive and my life gives birth to it.

 

Psalm 27:4-5

 

David’s desire was that his own heart would learn to seek God’s presence.

 

If you and I learn to dwell in God’s tabernacle, we too will be safe in times of trouble.
