“And Jesus said to them, I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.” John 6:35, NKJV
One thing about a natural hunger and a thirst, it will remain until it is satisfied. You will fight when you’re hungry. You will end a phone call abruptly when you’re hungry. You will stop and tell your manager, even your wife, I have to go get something to eat when you’re hungry. It is essential to your ability to live and function, and everything becomes secondary to it.
Make every hunger secondary to Jesus. He knows you need to eat and He has what we hunger for. He knows your thirst for love and identity. He knows your hunger for peace of mind. He knows your hunger for fulfillment. We can pursue pleasures, people and places, but none compares to the Person of Jesus Christ. He says trust and try Me.
Come and believe on Him, and acceptance will no longer be a hunger because He will affirm who you are. Peace will no longer be a hunger because He will supply great peace in your life. Love will no longer be what you thirst for because He will pour His love into your heart to make you free, healed and whole. Everything you seek is found in Him.
He will prove Himself to be all that you need.
Prayer: Father, thank You for Your Word to me. Jesus, You are the Bread of Life. You are all that I need. I walk by faith and come to You. Help me to make every hunger secondary to You and I will find that You can satisfy them all. Help me to make You Who I hunger and thirst for, and I won’t hunger and thirst again. In Your name I pray, Amen.
