Hunger is not from God unless it is deliberate and takes a form of worship. Hunger is the function of poverty and poverty is not from God.
I am talking about physical hunger for food and not the Spiritual hunger that prompts one to seek God.
A hungry man is a desperate man and
the devil uses hunger to enslave and control the hungry. A hungry man is likely to serve whomever is most likely to feed him, even if it is against his beliefs. Many are stuck in jobs they hate so they could feed themselves and their families. Many worship the devil or foreign gods so they could permanently evade hunger.
More importantly, many sell their souls to quench their hunger.
1. It was hunger that took the Israelites to Egypt to serve under a heathen king.
“I will go down with thee into Egypt; and I will also surely bring thee up again: and Joseph shall put his hand upon thine eyes. And Jacob rose up from Beer–sheba: and the sons of Israel carried Jacob their father, and their little ones, and their wives, in the wagons which Pharaoh had sent to carry him. And they took their cattle, and their goods, which they had gotten in the land of Canaan, and came into Egypt, Jacob, and all his seed with him:”
Genesis 46:4-6 KJV
2. It was hunger that got Esau to relinquish his birthright
“And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called Edom. And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright. And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?”
Genesis 25:30-32 KJV
2. It was hunger that made Israelites to complain about God and Moses, even after being freed from slavery
“And the children of Israel said unto them, Would to God we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the flesh pots, and when we did eat bread to the full; for ye have brought us forth into this wilderness, to kill this whole assembly with hunger.”
Exodus 16:3 KJV
2. Hunger is a weapon of warfare against believers
“They that be slain with the sword are better than they that be slain with hunger: for these pine away, stricken through for want of the fruits of the field.”
Lamentations 4:9 KJV
Eradicating hunger should be our daily endeavors as children of God, because a hungry believer is likely to a abandon his faith and/or backslide.
2. Poverty gets you despised, and render your talents useless
“Now there lived in that city a man poor but wise, and he saved the city by his wisdom. But nobody remembered that poor man.”
Ecclesiastes 9:15 NIV
This is an oxymoron; poverty and wisdom cohabiting. The wisdom of God can be muddied by poverty if the devil os allowed to have his way. Poverty and hunger eliminates your influence. This is why God had to chose and influential heathen and gave him a dream that would help the entire region to avoid a deadly famine, including His beloved people.
