I believe what this means is to allow God's righteouness that is Christ Jesus to be the one to satisfy our every need.In every good thing we seek to do as we know grace abounds.Our God is gracious and abounding in love and He watches His word to perform it.Every desire in us God created so its a must to be fulfilled by God alone.The God in us the Holy Spirit.

This script Matthew 5:6 says when you are hungry for food you eat. but to be hungry for God means to seek the things that he honor, do not do things to please "man " but put on the whole armor of God, so God is give us the spiritual food, that we need to fulfil his honor and Glory. and to keep coming back for more until we are full of God 's word. Gbu all

There was a time that I was hungry and thirsty to know the ways that the world did things and to become a part of them and do what they do. It led me to death and destruction YUK !!! God had mercy on me and brought me out of that miry pit !! Now I have a desire to be like Jesus and to do what He and my Heavenly Father does and to know Him better every day and to walk with Him Walk with Him Walk with Him !!!!!
