A Prayer to Discover Our Satisfaction within the God Who Satisfies Endlessly
By Alisha Headley
“Then Jesus mentioned to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, Moses didn’t provide you with bread from heaven, however My Father offers you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and provides life to the world.” (John 6:32-33)
Whereas we want meals every day to nourish our our bodies, there’s one other sort of nourishment that feeds our souls and that’s Jesus Himself. Most of us flip to meals or different types of nourishment and satisfaction to fill us not simply out of necessity for our our bodies to outlive, however out of a spot to consolation us, to offer us peace, and to briefly deliver us pleasure.
We don’t simply do that with meals, we create different types of pleasure to fulfill our starvation. We flip to television exhibits to numb us out, to buddies, to staying busy, to understanding, to our careers, or something we rely on or lean on to fulfill the starvation and thirst we now have for a longing of achievement. However like most issues, meals, or individuals, we’re solely glad briefly, after which we discover ourselves as soon as once more nonetheless hungry and thirsty for extra.
Immediately’s verse reminds us that the true eternal totally satisfying, that can by no means go away us hungry is from Heaven and that’s Jesus. Immediately’s passage is referring to how God provided manna to feed the Israelites as they fled the Egyptian slavery and as they traveled, with Moses as their chief, for 40 years all through the wilderness. Whereas bread to eat was nourishment and life to their our bodies, the true bread of Heaven is Jesus who offers life to their soul and the world. What a lovely reminder! That longing that all of us need to be fulfilled, will be fulfilled by merely calling on the identify of Jesus. He’s our one True Bread that can give us eternal life with Him at some point in Heaven. We are able to flip to Him at the moment for that starvation for achievement we really feel within us. We are able to flip to Him to fulfill us and quench our hungering wants. Let’s pray at the moment and ask Him to fulfill us in ways in which no meals, individual or factor ever can.
Thanks a lot for the Bible and all of the tales from the previous which might be nonetheless related to us at the moment. Thanks that you’re a God who offers and gained’t go away us hungry and thirsty. Thanks, Lord, that you just despatched your Son down from Heaven to die for our sins in order that we might have eternal life with you we’re advised in John 3:16. Please remind us at the moment that each one the issues of this world that we’re chasing after won’t ever ever really fulfill us. We thanks for blessing us with issues and other people on this life that deliver pleasure, however we’re reminded at the moment that they don’t deliver us lasting achievement.
We ask that you’d divulge to us any something on this world that we now have made an idol that we’re striving to meet us as a substitute of you. Please re-direct our focus again on you reminding us to “search you first the Kingdom of God and all of your righteousness, after which the whole lot else will likely be added to us.” (Matthew 6:33) Assist us keep in mind, that whereas the issues of this world are good to get pleasure from and love, it’s you we’re to like firstly, and it’s you that can deliver us lasting achievement and a nourishment to our lives that nothing else can. Forgive us for trying elsewhere, quite than trying in direction of you. We love you Lord and thanks for being our one true Consolation and in you, we “lack nothing. (Psalm 23:1)
