Food from the Father

Deep down in the human heart there is a need that nothing in the material world can satisfy. Many feel this as an indefinable longing, something they are hardly conscious of but producing an underlying restlessness and dissatisfaction with life—a constant moving about in search of something they know not what.

The search will remain fruitless until a mental right-about-face is made. This longing is not for something material, but is really the prompting of one's spiritual nature impelling him to awaken to a higher and better sense of life. It is a hunger and thirst for reality, to know God as divine Love, infinite Mind, and feel the peace and joy of His presence. The Psalmist must have felt this great need, for he wrote, "My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the Lord: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God." Ps. 84:2, 4; Later he exclaimed, "Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they will be still praising thee."
