As I made my way in to check a black bear bait site in Idaho, I approached with spooky caution. There’s an eerie feeling about walking onto the scene where obvious aggravation and aggression from such a large beast has destroyed everything at a stand sight. The bait barrel had been ripped from the wire that once held it securely in place. Grease covered logs and stumps were shredded. Bait that had been chained to a tree had been torn away by sharp bear claws. Nothing was left but the chains and scars. A hungry bear will do some crazy things! The drive to satisfy that hunger can be deadly…either for the bear…other bears in the areas…or for the hunter.
My prayer is that we hunger for Him, Jesus Christ. He is the one that satisfies like nothing else can. He is the one that meets the need when all others fail. He alone can heal the pain and scars of regret.
Do you hunger for Him today?
Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” John 6:35
