So before I even start today’s thought, I am celebrating the success of God meeting me in the Valley of Monday yesterday! After my quiet time, prayer and posting – I got the idea to schedule my day in my phone with things that needed to be done. That handy little app kept me on track all day, but I give all the glory to the God who teaches me the application of HIS WORD right where I live each day! Praise Him!
Do you ever wonder what draws people to stuff that is just plain bad for them? We can see it more easily in others, but we all have this tendency at times.
Proverbs 27:7 jumped out at me this morning.
A satisfied soul loathes the honeycomb, but to a hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet. (NKJV)
Soul hunger leads us to seek fulfillment anywhere.
Food, shopping, unhealthy relationships, exercise, escape through entertainment, stuffing down emotions or giving in to the full extend of them, striving to accomplish and achieve success…..anything that we are going after to fill the empty places inside of us that….
THROUGH….. a relationship with His Son Jesus Christ.
Because this is the only food for our soul that will satisfy.
This is the only food that will so fill your hungry soul that the offering of a sweet delight will cause you to say, “No thank you! I am so full!”
Seek the Lord with all of your hungry soul today. Sit at His table and do not get up until you are completely satisfied.
Pray for your loved ones who are filling their lives with bitter things, that God would open those eyes to the offering of Soul Food He has prepared for them!
May God bless each of you to the MAX today – full and over-flowing!!!!
