Are You Hungry?
We’re all hungry. Each one of us has a deep, abiding desire for something more… It’s just that some of us have no idea what it is. Instead of craving a vibrant relationship with the God who made us, we settle for a house, a family, a few friends, a job, a TV, and a yearly vacation. We think we can survive on this alone. Yet our souls starve! Nothing of this world can truly sate our appetite for God, but God.
When I fell away from God, I began to search for other means to fulfill the ache and hunger in my life. I thought a big bank account, a big job, a big house, a big car, a long life would be “BIG” enough to fill the void left by God. What I found is that nothing of this world was BIG enough… only God could sufficiently and aptly fill that space.
Until we all understand that and respond to his love, we are like the prodigal son, searching again for our home. Our search will always end in disappointment until we search for our home in God. No human relationship, job, possession, and amount of money or success can ultimately satisfy us.
I encourage you to stop trying to fill your plate with “junk food” and instead fully gratify your appetite with the Glory of God. This ache you feel will go away, but only if you seek the right food, the proper knowledge, and the right company to satiate it. God does all those things.
MAY YOU HAVE THE POWER TO UNDERSTAND … HOW WIDE, HOW LONG, HOW HIGH, AND HOW DEEP HIS LOVE IS. MAY YOU EXPERIENCE THE LOVE OF CHRIST,
THOUGH IT IS TOO GREAT TO UNDERSTAND FULLY. THEN YOU WILL BE MADE COMPLETE WITH ALL THE FULLNESS OF LIFE AND POWER THAT COMES FROM GOD.
