“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness for they shall be filled” (Matthew 5:6 (NKJV)). As a result of our hunger our need for righteousness (right living or standing with God), God’s promise is that we shall be filled. How simple right? To be filled however, It’s therefore necessary that we make ourselves available for the filling, though our hunger.
Hunger is the evidence of humility that keeps us in that dependency mode on God and his word.
