What do you crave?

Crave the word of God. Be desperate for it! Seek it. Yearn for it. Long for it. Desire it. Tolerate nothing in your life that might diminish your hunger for God's Word. And apply it with vigor and spiritual energy! The Word of God, whether it is preached and heard or read and memorized is more than simply true. It is effectual. The Word of God does more than merely announce: it accomplishes! It doesn't just impart information: it creates life! Sam Storms, Note to Self, Foreword, 19 
1 Chronicles 16:10-11
Give praise to God's holy name! Let the hearts rejoice of all those seeking the LORD!  Pursue the LORD and his strength; seek his face always! (Common English Bible)

Psalm 27:8

Come, my heart says, seek God's face. LORD, I do seek your face! (Common English Bible)

Psalm 40:16

But let all who seek you celebrate and rejoice in you. Let those who love your salvation always say, "The LORD is great!" (Common English Bible)

Psalms 42:1-2

Just like a deer that craves streams of water, my whole being craves you, God. My whole being thirsts for God, for the living God. When will come and see God's face? (Common English Bible)

1 Peter 2:2-3 

Instead, like a newborn baby, desire the pure milk of the word. Nourished by it, you will grow into salvation, since you have tasted that the Lord is good. (Common English Bible)
