Psalm 107:8-9 Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind,
9 for he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.
Tell God you are thirsty for Him and be filled with the holy water of His living Spirit. Tell God you are hungry for Him and be satisfied with His goodness. God wants you to tell Him your needs, and then He wants you to share your story of how you came to Him in your neediness and He fulfilled you. Your life is a song of thanksgiving and praise to God’s unfailing love. He will satisfy your thirst and hunger with holy and good things. You will live to tell of His goodness.

What if we asked God to desire what God desires? God’s Word gives insight into His desires.
1 Peter 5:2-3 “Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, serving as overseers—not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not greedy for money, but eager to serve; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock.”
God desires willing servants who long to humble themselves and represent Him. Let us pray to be Christ’s representatives by having humble, willing hearts that desire what God desires. What an act of worship when we conform our hearts to God’s heart, through the power of His indwelling spirit.
