God’s Boot Camp

Dear Diary,

Sometimes God puts us in His “Boot Camp” in order for us to learn of Him and have a hunger for Him. In God’s Boot Camp He teaches us to be dependent entirely on Him, and Him alone. We are to hunger and thirst after God and His righteousness. God’s Boot Camp strips us of all that once sustained us, all that we leaned upon, all that we once looked to for strength and stability. After we are brought to the empty bowl and the dry well, we reach out and hunger and thirst for God. John Piper wrote,”When God is the supreme hunger of your heart, He will be supreme in everything. And when you are most satisfied in Him, He will be most glorified in you,” (A Hunger for God). Right now I feel like I am in God’s Boot Camp, stripped of all security and comfort. I now must learn to rely on God’s security and comfort, and nothing else.

Thought for Today: “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.” (Matthew 5:6).
