The theme for today’s Joyce Meyer daily Devotional November 8 2022 is ”The Best Kind of Hunger”.
Here is today’s Joyce Meyer daily devo November 8 2022 designed for your spiritual refreshment. Kindly read today’s teaching by Joyce Meyer, meditate on the word of God and endeavor to act in accordance with them. As you start your day with God through his word, may he go before you to perfect all you have to do today.
SCRIPTURE: — Matthew 5:6 (NIV) “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.”
Today more people are spiritually malnourished than ever before. Too many elements of society distract people from their eternal souls and encourage them to concentrate on material life instead.
Caught up in this lifestyle, many people mistake the void they feel inside for physical hunger. They were never taught to recognize spiritual hunger, or what to do about it if they do recognize it. Since they don’t know what to do about the pain and loneliness, they reach for the quickest fix they know: food, drugs, alcohol, or other material pleasures.
If you have a rich spiritual life, you’ll already be satisfied and fulfilled in the moment, and won’t feel the need to “supplement” your moment with “things.”
We all have these moments at times. You wander through a summer field of fireflies and suddenly feel still and awed at the beauty of it all. You hold your new son or grandson on your lap and feel a great spiritual bond of love all around you. You’re sitting in a pew Sunday morning and the light comes through the stained glass and fills your heart with joy. The moment is complete in itself. You don’t think, My heart is full of joy, and boy do I wish I had a slice of chocolate cake in my hand! You can know the complete fulfillment of spiritual nourishment, and know that if you will experience it regularly, you’ll have no problem craving earthly things.
In fact, we should all feel those transcendent moments more often than we do. I believe they are essential to physical, emotional, and spiritual health. And I think we spend too little time trying to achieve them and too much time meditating on our problems. Get your mind off the problems and spend more time meditating on the one true source of nourishment—God’s love.
Prayer of the Day: Lord, I want to continually feel awed by You and filled to overflowing with joy! Wrap Your arms around me as I spend time with you on a regular basis, amen.
