“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, because they shall be filled.” (Mat 5:6 ISR)
Noah Webster defines “insatiable” as “incapable of being satisfied or appeased; very greedy; as an insatiable appetite or desire; insatiable thirst”. Someone who is addicted to a drug (ANY drug) will have an insatiable appetite for that drug he/she is addicted to. This individual will do whatever is necessary to satisfy the craving for this drug, legal or illegal. And that is the nature of an addiction; it is a bondage that is difficult to break free from.
And yet, how hungry and greedy are we for the things of our Elohim, for His presence, for His Word, for His shalom, for the righteousness that only comes through obedience to Him? This type of hunger is a blessing from our Creator, and one that He longs to satisfy, for He is the only One that can.
“And יהושע said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall not get hungry at all, and he who believes in Me shall not get thirsty at all.” (John 6:35 ISR, emphasis mine)
The things of this world are fleeting, they don’t last, and they certainly don’t satisfy. Addictions, whether they are to drugs, alcohol, food, or even relationships, can destroy lives, for they are bondages meant to keep us ensnared. But praise YAH for Messiah Yeshua; He satisfies the hungry soul, and He came to set us free! The more that we feed on Him, the Living TORAH, the more we will be satisfied, the more we will be filled, and the more His image will be recreated in us. Oh, that we would learn to be greedy, to be possessive and “famished” concerning our Creator, never satisfied with anything less than His holy presence, His holy Word, His holy touch …
“But whoever takes a drink of the water that I will give him shall never, no never, be thirsty any more. But the water that I will give him shall become a spring of water welling up (flowing, bubbling) [continually] within him unto (into, for) eternal life.” (John
“With long life will I satisfy him and show him My salvation.” (Ps 91:16 Amp)
