“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied” (Matthew 5:6).

There are many things that are decent and good, but reasonable people know that there are many things that are not.  There are those who, gifted by awakening of the Holy Spirit, desire righteousness, who pine for goodness and decency to be what guides our land and are satisfied by the Good News of Christ.  This world may not yet be corrected, but the Holy Spirit is satisfying the faithful who hunger and thirst for righteousness.

Lord, for me to be satisfied, I need not see what You have promised become reality, but by faith, I know it will come and that gives me peace.  You have told us the things which shall happen before the end comes, and You speak truth.  In the hunger for righteousness in this world, let it begin with me seeking the new life You have given me.  Let my hunger be satisfied by Your word.

Lord Jesus, You have spoken; your words fill my longing for righteousness, and I am satisfied.  You have told me to seek first Your righteousness and then all else that is needed shall be added.  Guide me, Lord, in the way You know I need to go so that I may live into this life You have given me, not in desperation, as do those around me who have no hope, but in satisfaction knowing that the Father’s will shall be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Amen.
