04 Aug Jesus Brings Lasting Fulfillment
Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” John 6:35
Jesus was speaking to the deepest needs of every individual. True hunger and thirst goes well beyond the basic needs of food and water. Jesus was offering to all of humankind the gift of His life and the satisfaction of the soul that comes as we seek the Lord and His ways.
Every day we all have the opportunity to come to Jesus and ask Him to fill us with His Spirit, His Love and His purposes for our lives. God is faithful to fulfill the deepest longings of our heart as we honor Him in all things.
Two chapters earlier, Jesus said, “My food is to do with the will of Him who sent me and to finish His work.” Doing God’s will is where we will find true satisfaction and fulfillment.
To do God’s will, I need to keep coming to Jesus in prayer and seeking Him in His Word, so that I can be sensitive to His voice and ready to obey Him. What is God saying to you these days? Are you hearing His voice in specific ways that prompt you to be a blessing to the people in your life? God is faithful to speak to us and lead us if we’ll take the time to listen.
Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for your precious promise to fulfill my deepest longings. I understand that as I delight to do your will, You will be faithful to lead me and guide me in the way I should go. I choose to honor your Word in all things today. Come Lord Jesus and fill me with your love and Spirit so that I may seek your ways. I humble myself before you and choose to go your way today. I choose to be satisfied by your Word and your Presence in my life. Thank you for showing me the secret to true satisfaction and fulfillment.
