Ever noticed when you eat fast food you seem to get hungrier? One may start of getting a dollar burger than end up with medium fries and a hot fudge sundae to finish it off. This is also true for our souls. We often look to spiritual junk food to satisfy our hunger as opposed to the Lord himself. We often like the Israelites make a “golden calf” out of worldly things when we feel like God has abandoned us or moved from us. Psalms 37:4 says “Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart.”
So often what we think we need is not what we truly need so we grab for it in so many other things other than the Lord’s unfailing love and sustaining presence to satisfy our hungry hearts.
