For He satisfies the longing soul and fills the hungry soul with goodness. Psalms 107 :9
From the time we are babies, we keep trying to achieve contentment and satisfaction.
As a baby, it is as simple as the presence of the mother and food . As a young child, it may be playing, eating ice cream, chocolates and so on. As an adult we continue to have the same set of needs and longings and more. As we grow older our longings and requirements keep increasing. It is human nature to never be satisfied with money, food, status, career.
Most of us don’t realize this longing that we have is not mental or physical. It is the emptiness of our soul that leads us to search for joy in these materialistic items .We know of many famous celebrities who have success, money , fame , fortune but they are leading lives of depression and sadness .
The real joy and goodness do not come from the outside. It begins with our faith ,trust and hope that we have in the Lord Jesus Christ .
Today, let us reach out to the Lord Jesus and Let His Holy Presence fill our lives.
Then He will satisfy our longing soul.
The hunger in our hearts will be filled with His goodness.
Let us not look around us but within us.
Luke 17 :21 says People will not say, ‘Look, here it is!’ or, ‘There it is!’ because God’s kingdom is within you.”
