Have you ever eaten a full course meal, but for some reason you were still hungry? How about starting out on a destination with the address and location, but still ending up lost. Here’s another one, meeting a group of friends for an activity and in a room full of people, you still feel lonely. This feelings are very similar to how you may feel when you are without God. A feeling of being unsatisfied with self or surroundings.  When we arrive at the realization that God is a complete package, we will hunger no more for things of the material world. You are probably thinking, “How can that be.”  I say, easy.  It is based on you having a personal relationship with God and trusting Him to satisfy all of your needs.

God ought not to be your last resort when nothing else seems to satisfy you, He should be first in your life.  No human has the capacity to give you all the things that you desire, only God has this magnificent power; however, you must put all of your trust in Him. There are times when it just seems as though your mate is unable to give you that contentment that you so desire, it is those time that you should seek God. The ones that you love the most are not always able to be that stable person that you desire, however, God is that non-movable rock.  Again, you must trust in Him to satisfy all of your wants and desires.  At some point in our lives, we are all broken and damages vessels floating in the sea of life.  God wants to be salvation that we so desperately need, but you must come to Him and place your cares upon His alter.  No matter how long you take, He will be there with open arms.

If we can just learn to put our faith in God, and not seek peace, love or joy from external sources, then we will be one more day closer to understanding the true power of love. Will you give Him a try?  You have nothing to lose, but salvation to gain.

A few critical thoughts:
Make God a bigger part of your life.  Don’t look to things that are unstable. God can fulfill all of your needs. God will always be on time and never let you down. God can be trusted.

Biblical Verse(s):
Isaiah 58:11
– The Lord will continually guide you, and satisfy your desire.
Philippians 4:6-7
– Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:19 -And my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Challenge:
be intentional today about making a time to pray and read your bible.  Try reading a chapter out of proverbs each day, or reading a chapter in the gospels.  As you do, immerse yourself in the love and promises god has for you.  This will add to your growth as you walk with him.


Q: Have you abandoned God?

Have a blessed day, I love you!
