Hunger – “When you are hungry for God you stop at nothing to see His vision.”
Scripture: Nehemiah 9:1-4
217church Day of Fasting – Friday February 19, 2016

What Nehemiah does, before anyone knew the vision, comes to pass in the city among all the people of God. All the people fasted. This means they didn’t eat for a prescribed period of time. It is incredible how the actions of one faithful leader, to deprive himself of food and seek the face of God, led to thousands desperately desiring a move of God in the city. When we withdraw from our self-dependence, this is when we truly begin to surrender to the Holy Spirit and His promptings in our lives. As I am writing this I am hungry. My stomach is growling and I need food. May we have this same hunger for God and His presence in our lives as we hunger for His Word.
