In today’s world, we see much about humanity. We hear about the power of humanity, the strength of man, the wisdom of man, and so forth.
Unless it is the Lord working through us, our strength is nothing. Compared to His might, our strength is lighter than even a feather.
Man’s strength can be a great downfall in its pride. Reliance on human resources can blind us from our constant need for Father God. It can cause us to think we are doing well when we are truly empty and doing nothing of value. It can hinder us from seeing the difference between what is temporal versus what is eternal.
“Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting.“ 2 Corinthians 4:18 (AMPC)
Much of what we see is vanity and unreliable (Ecclesiastes 1). Our greatest satisfaction is found in leaning on the One who made us, admitting our need of Him, and surrendering our will to Him.
Jesus alone satisfies, that knowing Him intimately brings true life. Do you know this truth? I pray you do and will; and let’s pray together that all will come to know it.
In knowing this truth, you are already abundantly blessed. In walking it out, you are doubly blessed! Blessed is the one who knows that nothing else will satisfy but Jesus, for even when we feel “hungry” in this life, we know our true satisfaction is found in Him alone.
“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.“ Matthew 5:6 (NKJV)
Continue to place the Lord at the center of your life, through the difficulty and the mundane, through the joy and the tears. You shall reap such beauty in His time.
“They who sow in tears shall reap in joy and singing. He who goes forth bearing seed and weeping [at needing his precious supply of grain for sowing] shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.” Psalm 126:5-6 (AMPC)
As you keep giving the Lord the highest place of value and time, you shall see your choice of wisdom justified in the end.
Every trial is nothing compared to the glory to be revealed (Romans 8:18). His love is truly better than the “wine” offered by the world (Song of Songs 1:2). Jesus truly satisfies, so drink deeply, beloved friends of God!
