A Thirst Replenished
John 6:35 “Jesus replied, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” ~NLT
What is going on in your life right now? Are things going as planned or are you at a place in life where you feel stuck? It is relatable that we can be successful with a career and financially sound; or do not have a job and looking to make ends meet and still be at a place in life where we may feel like we are stuck. By stuck, I mean, our thoughts are repeating over and over again, “Is this all there is to life?” “Why am I not happy or satisfied with my life?”
We all have an emptiness inside that we are constantly trying to fill. We think it’s our finances, because it seems we never have enough. We think it’s the needs of our marriage that never seem to be satisfied or met. Or maybe it is just something going on inside of us that we can never seem to understand why we feel the way we do about all of the above. That void has a constant leak. It doesn’t matter what we use to fill it, eventually it turns up empty and we feel some kind of way about everything.
What we need to realize is that the void can only be filled by one major ingredient. Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! The world constantly takes ‘stabs’ at our flesh with its swords of struggle, distraction and memories of the past. Wounding us physically and mentally. But God is a healer, and we need His Word to allow us the spiritual armor we need to cover our flesh. We need His Word to heal our wounds of the past and of the pain. We need Jesus to satisfy that hunger we have for that void.
When we feast on the “...bread of life…” we satisfy that hunger. When we grow into a habit of feasting on that Word, Jesus says we will, “...never be hungry again…” We will never want for anything because we will know that God will provide. And when we believe in this, we will never thirst because our paths will be guided and our lives will have purpose in the name of Jesus!
No more wondering, “Is this all there is to life…” because God will seed a calling in us that will get us up every morning refreshed and ready to move in that purpose. The clouds of doubt and discouragement will be replaced by motivation and strength renewed by God everyday! Believe in our Savior, because of what He has done for us and because of the love His Father…Our Father has for us!
May God continue to bless and keep you under His umbrella of protection in Jesus’ name.
