As a child, when I showed up at the dinner table early my mother could be heard saying, “The hungry ones are at the table.” She was right, I was hungry and ready to consume a wonderful home cooked meal.
I am blessed with the opportunity to speak and share God’s truth around the world. I do find a difference in the one’s seated before me from place to place. For some it’s just another meeting; for others it’s a “I’ll see if this speaker can impress me or teach me anything new.” But for a few, the hungry ones, they are seated at the table early… anticipating. Mary and I had the privilege of speaking at numerous events this past weekend on the west coast of the US. People gathered early. Excitement was in the air. Anticipation lingered in the Spirit and prayerful hearts were seated with a passionate hunger for what God was about to speak to them. God did not disappoint them; He delivered to the hungry ones.
For He satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things. Psalm 107:9

Great post, Steve. May I always stay ready, waiting and hungry at the Lord’s table — in His presence!
Thank you, Omondis. Africa is one place in the world where there are always open, eager, anticipating and hungry ones!
