Would I walk for 6 hours to hear the Word of God preached?
Would I sleep on this stone floor for days so that I could hear as much possible before I had to head back home?
Would I sit in the dark listening intently to the teaching of His Word, by the light of a flashlight?
And would I prolong the study by asking question after question about the scriptures?
Would I bother walking to an open-air, half-built church where I knew there would be bugs, no air conditioning and not enough seating?
Do I thirst for the presence of God? Do I hunger for God’s word?
The believers in La Gonave are hungry and thirsty for the Word and presence of God. I am encouraged and inspired by their dedication towards experiencing God through His Word.
They feast on the abundance of your house, and you give them drink from the river of your delights. Psalm 36:8
Lord, make my heart crave your Word; more than my comfort and my plans. Give me the determination and longing like these people had to be in your presence. Let me not be so easily distracted and discouraged from pursuing time in your Word.
