Billy Graham’s Daily 16 August 2017 Devotional - Hunger for Righteousness
I will give to the thirsty the springs of the Water of Life—as a gift! — Revelation 21:6 (TLB)
God says that only those who hunger after righteousness will receive it. God thrusts this heavenly manna on no one. You must desire it, above everything else.
Your yearning for God must supersede all other desires. It must be like a gnawing hunger and a burning thirst.
Prayer for the day: Almighty God, my soul is parched and I'm so hungry without the spiritual food You so desire to give me. Take away anything in my life that would cause me not to give You pre-eminence.
Written by Billy Graham, Founder of Billy Graham Evangelistic Association(BGEA). BGEA exists to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ by every effective means and to equip the church and others to do the same.
