Satisfaction for the Hungry Soul

Satisfaction for the Hungry Soul
Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness.—Psalm 107: 8-9
Have you ever pushed yourself away from the table at Thanksgiving and said, “I never want another bite to eat as long as I live”? At that moment, you are genuinely sincere. You really don’t want another bite of food. But come evening, there you are back in the kitchen, putting whipped cream on a slice of pumpkin pie. That’s because the body demands constant feeding.
**The Flesh can never be satisfied.
No matter how much you feed your flesh, it will always want more. In fact, if you give in to an area of the flesh, rather than being satisfied, it demands more and more until it eventually brings you into bondage.
Just as men have physical hunger and thirst, they also have spiritual hunger and thirst. The problem comes when you try to satisfy a spiritual need with a fleshly experience. It just doesn’t work.
Are you hungry for more of God? Thirsty for peace or righteousness? In John 6: 35, Jesus said, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.”
*Jesus is the answer to all your longings. (Ask Him to reveal Himself to you personally).
Father, we thank You that through Your Son, our hunger and our thirst have been satisfied. For those still trying to fill their spiritual need with physical experience, we ask that Your Holy Spirit draw them back to Jesus. In His name we pray, amen.
PS When I understood GRACE -my legalistic relationship with God became joyful. When Jesus revealed Himself to me as the Shepherd of Psalm 23 -I was faced with a decision – I asked Him to become MY shepherd. And He did! Praise the Lord!
PSS Prayer request – this am a new Young Professionals (YP) discipleship group launches. Really appreciate your prayers for God to develop and use this group of young men for His glory!
