Mom, I’m so hungry I could eat the northend out of a southbound skunk.

I grew up in rural Illinois and never owned a watch, but everyday at precisely twelve o’clock, I would hear my mom’s voice calling all of us kids to come home for dinner. That time never varied by more than a couple of minutes, so I would run home to eat because I knew mom had a meal waiting for me. As I entered mom’s kitchen, I would say to her, “Mom, I’m so hungry I could eat the northend out of a southbound skunk.” She would laugh, tell me to go wash up and sit down at the table. I’m here to tell ya, “My mom was a great cook.” And the smells that floated around in her kitchen would cause you to drool all over yourself. She was that good of a cook. But, most people in America don’t know what it means to be really hungry. My family didn’t have much when I grew up, but we were never hungry. Not the kind of hungry where your stomach is gnawing at your backbone. We know there are some hungry people in America, but not to the degree that is so rampant in many other parts of the world where people have absolutely nothing to eat and no where to turn for help. There are programs on television that show us scenes of starving people in far off places, but we don’t see such hunger here in America. So we have a hard time believing anyone anywhere else in this world could be that hungry. But, if you have ever been anywhere outside of the United States you would soon realize just how blessed this country is and just how poor many other countries are.
To the degree many people in this world are suffering physical hunger in their natural bodies; the Christian should be just as hungry for the things of God. The church in America at this time is starving to death for the truth of God’s word, and for a move of God. We are in a spiritual famine just as severe as the physical famines in other countries. Since we have entered into this spiritual famine; every kind of evil known to man has availed itself to keep this famine alive. It comes in every form and in every type of media available to man. But the church ignores it because it doesn’t have the power to fight back. We are weakened and have lost our strength because we are spiritually starving. While men preach on how to get more money out of God, and where to purchase their books on seven step to whatever, we hear nothing about striving to obtain the righteousness of God where He fills our all in all and we become the righteousness of God striking fear in the heart of the devil and his associates.
Jesus said in [Matthew 5:6] “Blessed are those who HUNGER and THRIST for RIGHTEOUSNESS. For they shall be filled.” The kind of hungry Jesus is talking about isn’t a physical hunger. This kind of hunger cannot be satisfied with a burger and fries. This is a spiritual hunger that is way down in our spirit gnawing at our soul; crying out to be satisfied with God’s righteousness. Nothing else can satisfy it. Only God can fill it. Jesus said when we develop that kind of hunger for the things of God, “We shall be filled.” Brothers and sisters, that is the kind of hunger it will take for us to see a move of God in our country, and in our churches, and in the communities in which we live. Are you hungry?  When God gets that kind of hunger working down in our soul gnawing at our spirit and we begin to pursue the righteousness of God with our whole being; we will see every kind of miracle begin to take place in our lives, in our families, churches, and in our communities. God longs to see His children doing the deeds Jesus performed on this earth; setting His people free of their sins, demons, ill health, and cares of this world.
T. L. Osborn, a world renowned evangelist once said, “It is harder for a person in America to receive a healing for a headache than it is for a person to be healed of cancer in most other countries of the world.” The reason Americans have a hard time receiving from God is because they have no faith in God. I have ministered in Mexico and seen all kinds of healing take place because they had no one to turn to but God. Isn’t that a travesty? God has blessed this country more than any other country in the world; and because He has; we should have faith to move every mountain in our life, our neighbors life, and in this country; but that is not the case. Which goes to show us God is a God of faith, and whoever has faith in Him to meet their needs, gets their needs met. Those who don’t, won’t.
I have ministered in the dump ground area of Monterrey, Mexico, as well as the remote areas of central Mexico and have seen every kind of miracle take place. I just preached the Word and told them, “God is here to meet your needs. Who has faith to be healed, delivered, and set free?” And immediately a line formed and God met their needs. I saw the deaf hear, the blind see, and the bent over stand up straight, stiff bodies made flexible, people delivered, and the lost saved and filled with the Holy Ghost and consumed by the love of Christ. Then I have ministered here in America and said the same thing; and the people looked at me like I was nuts. Their actions told me, “We don’t believe in that faith healer snake oil stuff here. All that passed away with the Apostles you know.” And sure enough God didn’t heal anyone there because of their unbelief. The difference between the two groups was the Mexican people knew they had no one to turn to but God, and the faith of the American people was in their doctor. Both got what they believed for. God met both of them where their faith was. The Mexican people didn’t pay a dime to receive their healing from God, but Americans leave the hospitals minus some part of themselves as well as a lot less money than they had when they entered.
