I pray you’ll join us and learn new and exciting things too from His Word.
This Week We're Looking at Hunger
"Hungry I come to You, For I know You satisfy..." So begins one of my favorite songs from Vineyard Worship. These words resonate with a deep, deep part of me. You see, I have a long history of trying to fill myself with all the wrong things.
God used my hunger for food, fame, accolades, and attention to humble me. He showed me my true dependence on Him to meet my needs, and now, just as He did the Israelites (Deuteronomy 8:3), He feeds me from His hand.
Daily I get to feast on His Holy Word, His love, His compassion (Isaiah 49:10) and His promises–promises to work all things for my good (Romans 8:28). The more I trust in His provisions, the less I crave all the other things. I find rest from striving. The God-shaped hole fills up.
When I take my eyes off the feast God spreads before me and the joy Jesus brings, the old cravings sneak up on me. I am woefully insufficient to meet my own needs, and there is nothing this world has to offer that can substitute. But when I sit back down to His table once again (He never rescinds the invitation), I find my true worth as His guest.
"Hungry I come to You, For I know You satisfy..."
“Jesus said to them, 'I am the bread of life; whoever comes to Me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in Me shall never thirst.'” John 6:35
