Day 229 –
Doing whatever we Want whenever we Want WON’T satisfy our every Want!
Ezekiel 16:28-29 “You engaged in prostitution with the Assyrians too, because you were insatiable; and even after that, you still were not satisfied. Then you increased your promiscuity to include Babylonia, a land of merchants, but even with this you were not satisfied.”
If money wasn’t an issue and you could have everything you thought you ever wanted, but didn’t have Jesus, do you think you’d be satisfied?
In reality, many think this could be true, however, the only thing that satisfies our soul is Jesus.
The heart that keeps seeking satisfaction is the heart that has a hole the size of Jesus in it. We may try to place lots of different things in it, all different sizes and shapes, but one by one they will each fall out. We may all of a sudden think, this one fits just right, this job is exactly what I needed, this raise will provide my every want, this baby will bring my marriage together, this man will be the one that completes me, this move will give me a better life, but then there’s a tiny gap and something else needs to fill it before this peg falls out too.
Once we find the ONE thing, the ONLY thing, the thing that will fit everyONES hole will make us feel truly Whole for the first time. And this One thing is Jesus and a life devoted to Him.
Jesus can never fall out, He will stay forever.
Isn’t that what you’re wanting? Isn’t that what you are seeking? The ability to feel complete and perfectly content?!
What we each need is Jesus. That’s it! That’s all!
Do you know how to find him? Do you know how to get Him to fill your heart? Just ask Him! Just pray to His Father in Heaven to give you Jesus. And Jesus you will have, along with every other want you never even thought of. That’s because your desires now line up with His, since He lives directly in that perfect, Jesus size hole that was ONCE in your heart.
Now your Hole is Whole because Jesus satisfied your Soul!
