In HIS Presence


Read: Acts 10:1-23

Meditation verse:

“And a voice came to him, “Rise, Peter; kill and eat” (Acts 10: 13)

Peter became very hungry and wanted to eat, then he fell into a trance where he saw a great sheet descending from heaven containing all kinds of four-footed animals, wild beasts, and birds of the air. Then God told him to rise, kill and eat. Peter’s hunger put him in a state that enabled him to see the vision God had for him. Similarly, God can create a void in your life in preparation for the vision He has for us. This void leads to a hunger within you, which either puts you in a state of vulnerability or creates a restlessness in you. Either way, as you look up to God for answers, He opens your heart to perceive what He wants you to do. The bible states that as Peter thought about the vision, the Spirit spoke to him, revealing what the vision was about.

It is difficult to go after what you are not hungry for or what you have no desire for, because you are likely to give up at the slightest challenge. The hunger becomes the motivation that pushes you further. The greater the hunger, the greater your desire to satisfy it. When God was leading the children of Israel to the promised land, He repeatedly told them that the land was beautiful and good, flowing with milk and honey. He was creating a hunger in them that would enable them take possession of the land, despite opposition from its previous inhabitants.

Which area of your life is there currently a vacuum or deep void? What are you hungry for? What is your deepest heart desire? The hunger and yearning you are feeling, may be connected to the vision that God has for you. It may be tied to your God-ordained assignment. “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled (Mathew 5:6).
