Have you wondered why you feel hungry?
Have you asked yourself why do I need to eat and buy food?
Why can I just live without hunger?
I came across this topic because of the financial crisis we are facing at the moment.I eventually became a skeptic in a way that my faith is shaking.I repent and knowing that God allows hardship so that we can see His miracles working alongside in this way I know that I really need God and His mercy all the time.That does not end there, Here are some things we need to keep in mind.
As a human, we experience this so called feeling ” hunger”, and it drives us to search for food.On, either way, we feel the same hunger from things that we crave for perhaps on things that we desire or from the envious state of mind.When there is a hunger there is “the need to be filled and an instinct to think of and search for things that will satisfy our cravings.
As we grow and be immune with the way how the food chain up cycles whether life precedes lifetime after life. Death became predictable as of how the graves are famished for decayed flesh. And the hunger for knowledge is an epiphany of how the human revealed its inner desires.
Eve is a great example of how it all begin,
Genesis 3:6 When the woman saw that the tree produced fruit that was good for food, was attractive to the eye, and was desirable for making one wise, she took some of its fruit and ate it. She also gave some of it to her husband who was with her, and he ate it.
This shows the nature of being human and the hidden desires affects the whole humanity.
A disobedient and rebellious heart, flesh that hungers to be satisfied, the pride of life which is the predominance by gaining knowledge.You will ask if, when did it all start?
Is it Adam or Eves fault?
It began when GOD created human. The human was created alongside his hunger and its desire.God already knows the human needs so He created it first, He created the sun the moon to give light, the ground, trees and plants and animals for food.Genesis:1- 30
24 God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: cattle, creeping things, and wild animals, each according to its kind.” It was so.
29 Then God said, “I now give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the entire earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.
But because of disobedience Sin was born.Where we can put our blame? Whether we like it or not we inherit the sin from Adam and Eve. We are sinful by nature.
We need God’s Grace through Jesus. God created hunger alongside us from the beginning not just to search for food and shelter good life and knowledge which is a temporary need.
But God created hunger and thirst so that he can fill us.He created it so that we hunger for his presence and to know Him deeply, God wants to be closer to us, and this is what He wanted, what He longed for ever since He created the heavens and the earth, He also wants to bring us to His wonderful way of living. Only the Creator knows its creations need, We are not superior to our life, Hunger is a feeling within us and we need to be filled first spiritually .
