I am defenseless against peanuts.

Do I know that I should not eat the entire container of nuts in one sitting?

Yes, yes I do.

Do I do it anyway?

Yes, yes I do.

Because I really, really, love peanuts. They are a great. I just can’t help myself when I’m around them.

I have a craving for them.

I was thinking about craving and desiring things when I read this passage from Psalm 78 this morning:

29 So they ate and were well filled, *
for he gave them what they craved.
30 But they did not stop their craving, *
though the food was still in their mouths.

God gave the people everything they craved.

He gave them everything they wanted. But, they still wanted more.

The wanted more and more and more and more.

Because what they were craving was not filling.  Now, it might have filled the body.

But it didn’t fill the soul.

It didn’t meet their true craving.

Today, do you crave God?  Do you desire to spend time with Him. Do you long to know Him on a deeper and deeper level?

Can you not wait to spend time in His word?  With His people?  With Him in prayer?

What do you crave this morning?

What is it that you desire this morning?

If it is anything other than God, you will be disappointed.  If it’s anything other than knowing Him deeper, you will find it lacking.

God gave them what they craved. And it wasn’t enough.

Only Him.  Only knowing Him deeper. Only time with Him.

That’s the only thing that will fill our craving.
