When Your Appetite For Spiritual Things Begin To Wane…

I get worried when I notice that I would rather chat on my phone than pray.
I get worried when I notice that I would rather read a work of fiction than read the Bible.
I get worried when I notice that I would rather sleep than spend time with Jesus.
And all the above scenarios I have experienced or am currently experiencing in some way now.

As I sat before the Lord today, these words came to me: “when your appetite for spiritual things begins to wane… your spirit man is dieing and you don’t even know it”.

I believe that some of us go down the deep end spiritually and we do not even know it.

It would be better if we actually feel something amiss when we are offtrack in our spiritual lives but sometimes..most times we don’t feel anything till the situation has taken such a toll on us spiritually.

This is going to be very short, I am just sharing as I am led to do…

Access yourself…

Where do you stand spiritually?

If you were go to for a spiritual check up, what would be your score?

A-OKAY or no no no?

What do you yearn for?

What does your soul long for?

The Psalmist said my soul pants after the Lord as a deer pants after water.

Is your soul panting for God?

Or panting for money?

Or panting for all the requests and demands that you have?

When another morning rolls around, do you wake up with a song in your heart eager to go sit with Jesus and receive some refreshment?

Or has other things taken over your mind even in the morning?
Social media…
Your boyfriend…
Your fiance?

Who do you speak to first in a day?
Who takes your very first thought?
Is Jesus still worth that much to you?

I leave us all to judge ourselves on this.

It’s a new week.
Ask for grace to make changes and align accordingly.

In the pursuit of Jesus, Only Him reigns supreme.

Have a great week ahead dears.

    When I prefer to listen to a man’s audio or video message than read the word for myself.. My spiritual appetite is indeed waning. This post is very convicting. ???? I am so guilty.. May God increase our hunger and appetite for Him.. Amen

      Ah this one too is deep. feeding off another’s revelation which isn’t bad but doing it because we don’t wanna feed our own self. I am guilty too.
      Lord help us oh like you have said Cynthia and may our thirst for Hi, increase and deepen in Jesus name, amen

    Each day I ask God for grace, to continue to stay at the centre of His will for my life.The flesh counts for nothing.
