But I wonder if the idea of hungering for more of the Lord causes us to miss what we already have with Him.
Does seeking Him, hungering for Him, get in the way of living with Him?
Can we really hope to have more of the Spirit than is already in us if we are believers? Hungering for more of the Spirit seems to belittle the Spirit living in us in favor of a future Spirit we haven’t found yet. Some secret new level not yet attained. Are we somehow incomplete when we accept Jesus as Lord?
I think the real problem may be in how we hunger/seek Him. I think we can concentrate on the method so intently that we miss the destination or target.
Many times we take an academic approach and read more. Study more. Discuss more. All at the cost of spending more time with Him. Does my seeking God get in the way of my finding Him? It would be like going to a buffet and getting caught up in seeing what foods are on it rather than eating.
